Downton Abbey fans got a glimpse on Tuesday of the television period drama’s upcoming movie adaptation, with a new trailer showing the central Crawley family preparing for a royal visit to their sprawling countryside home. Little has been revealed about the movie, which is set in 1927 and continues the story about a British household in the early 20th century.

“The king and queen are coming to Downton,” a surprised Robert Crawley, played by actor Hugh Bonneville, says in the trailer which shows the family and their household staff, also key characters, preparing for the visit.
