The first trailer for the Downton Abbey movie is officially here.

Downton Abbey closed its doors for the seemingly final time on Christmas Day in 2015.

The historical drama, which ran for five seasons, first began the day after the Titanic sank in 1912 before taking fans through the events of World War I, and bidding its final farewell in 1925.

However, thankfully for Downton Abbey fans, a feature film was later confirmed - and now the first trailer for the film is finally here.

The film - now set in 1927 - will see the Crawley family and their army of maids, butlers and cooks thrown into a bit of chaos with a royal visit looming.

Yes, that's right: King George V and Queen Mary are coming to visit the Crawleys'  Yorkshire estate.

But in the wake of the Great Depression and the aftermath of World War I, the estate is being run by fewer servants. So, they decide to ask Casron, the retired head butler, to return and get things in "ship-shape".

The movie stars Hugh Bonneville, Laura Carmichael, Jim Carter, Brendan Coyle, Michelle Dockery, Kevin Doyle, Joanne Froggatt, Matthew Goode, Harry Hadden-Paton, and David Haig.
