According to Entertainment Weekly, Downton Abbey fans have more than just an upcoming movie adaptation to get excited about. The people behind the forthcoming movie are releasing a companion book that will give readers a behind-the-scenes glance at the making of the film.
The new book will be titled Downton Abbey: The Official Film Companion and will be released on September 17, 2019. The book will feature a foreword by series creator Julian Fellowes, stunning photos from the new movie, interviews with the cast and crew along with original costume illustrations.
The upcoming film, out on September 20, will be set in 1927, when King George V and Queen Mary (aka Queen Elizabeth’s grandparents) are visiting Downton Abbey. Except, times are tough, and the Crawley clan has cut back on staff and servants. In order to prep for the royal family arrival, Lord Grantham has asked Mr. Carson to return from retirement to help out the family and get the Abbey in tip-top shape just as the world seems to be bordering on disarray.
