Viking Announces Partnership With The Upcoming Film “Downton Abbey: A New Era”
Viking announced it has partnered with Focus Features, Universal Pictures and Carnival Films for the release of the new full-length film, “Downton Abbey: A New Era”, which is the highly anticipated continuation of the first Downton Abbey film and beloved television series.
Viking became a household name during its sponsorship of the celebrated series MASTERPIECE through the years Downton Abbey aired on PBS, and the extension of the partnership builds on the company’s commitment to enriching cultural programming.
The continuation of the 2019 feature film reunites the original principal cast, following the Crawley family and the staff of Downton Abbey. Beyond the Downton estate, this film will also see the Crawley’s travel to the south of France to explore the region and uncover the mystery of the Dowager Countess’ newly inherited villa.
This is the first time that viewers see the Crawley family travel outside of the U.K. Today, April 25, marks the film’s global premiere in London; it will debut in U.S. theaters on May 20.
