Jim, 73, who stars alongside his wife as Mr Carson in the period drama, looked dapper in a navy suit and a matching shirt as he appeared to be as smitten as ever while posing with Imelda.

Fans have been eagerly awaiting Downton Abbey: A New Era, the sequel to the 2019 film which will see the Crawley family head to the South of France to uncover a mystery at a villa bestowed to Dowager Countess of Grantham, Violet Crawley, while an ambitious director plans to make a film at Downton.

The trailer shows the Crawley family heading to the South of France to uncover a mystery at a villa bestowed to Dowager Countess of Grantham, Violet Crawley, while an ambitious director plans to make a film at Downton.

It opens as fan favourite Violet [Dame Maggie], says: ‘I’ve come into the possession of villa in the South of France.

She continues: ‘Years ago, before you were born. I met a man.’ It then transpires Dowager Grantham and her lover ‘spent a few days together and he gave her a house’.

The upcoming sequel will see the return of the much-loved cast including Hugh, Michelle and Penelope Wilton.

And it looks like there could be trouble in paradise for Lady Mary (Michelle) as she talks about the struggles of marriage in the trailer.

Lady Mary is seen talking to Hugh’s character, saying: ‘You don’t need me to tell you that marriage is a novel full of plot twists along the way.’

Stylish: Imelda, 66, who portrays Maud Bagshaw in Downton Abbey, cut a smart figure in a white and blue stripped shirt with a draping back and black trousers

Smart: Jim, 73, who stars alongside his wife as Mr Carson in the period drama, looked dapper in a navy suit and a matching shirt

Married: Imelda, 66, who portrays Maud Bagshaw in Downton Abbey, cut a smart figure in a white and blue stripped shirt with a draping back and black trousers, while Jim looked dapper in a navy suit

And fans picked up on the absence of Lady Mary’s husband Henry Talbot (Matthew Goode) in the official posters.

One wrote: ‘Where is Henry Talbot???’

While another added: ‘WHERE IS HENRY TALBOT? I may need to take a turn around the grounds to mull over this mystery’.

A third chimed: ‘I just noticed one main character is missing from the #DowntonAbbeyANewEra movie poster. Where is Henry Talbot?’.

The trailer also shows estate becoming the setting for a film and a slim mustached Dominic, who plays an 1920s Hollywood actor, becomes quite the heartthrob among the staff.

One of the cooks says: ‘There is something about him, he’s like a wild animal ready to spring’.

Mister Barber, a producer and director, begins to shoot the film- but Earl of Grantham, Robert Crawley (Hugh Bonneville) isn’t impressed by the fanfare.

‘I think its a horrible idea. Actresses plastered in make-up and actors just plastered,’ he says as the scene shifts to the Hollywood cast interrupting the day-to-day life in Downton.

The trailer also hints that fans will finally get to see widower Tom Branson find love again with maid Lucy Smith, as the pair tie the knot in romantic scenes.

Downton creator Julian Fellowes previously teased some details about the movie, which is based on the acclaimed TV series.

Speaking about the project, Julian shared: ‘It’s really a new era. The further the ’20s went along, the more the world was changing in so many ways. Everything from entertainment to transport was really different by the end of the ’20s. That’s what we’re referring to in that.’

Julian sees the Downton films as an extension of the hit TV series, which ran for six seasons between 2010 and 2015, and he explained that the new movie will pick up from where the 2019 film ended.

He said: ‘As we know from the last film, Mary may not be the titular head of the household, but she is effectively running the show. We take that further.

‘We’re trying to mark the change – the fact that Crawleys of Downton are nearly in the 1930s, which is merely the beginning of the modern world.’

Cast: The upcoming sequel will see the return of the much-loved cast including Hugh, Michelle and Penelope Wilton (L-R) Samantha Bond, Douglas Reith, Harry Hadden-Paton, Laura Carmichael, Hugh Bonneville, Elizabeth McGovern, Michelle Dockery, Penelope Wilton, Robert James Collier and Michael Fox
