Downton Abbey still a real fancy fucking house in the first teaser for its big screen debut

Confirming that, yes, Downton Abbey is still a house that could, charitably, be described as “fancy as fuck” now that it’s making the move to the big screen, Focus Features released the first teaser trailer for the series’ feature film continuation onto the internet today.

Plot details are non-existent, but we do get a list of the characters who’ll be returning for another round of upstairs-downstairs domestic drama, as well as a reminder that the Abbey itself is still a joint that is distinctly classy af. (“Look at those fucking fancy sheets,” we found ourselves muttering as we watched the trailer. “Jesus shitting Christ, those crenelations are fucking insane!”)
