The preview shows Violet (Smith) share with her family that she once had a romance with a man before her son Robert (Hugh Bonneville) was born. Violet has now inherited a villa in the French Riviera.

The Crawley family is seen visiting France, with Charlie Carson (Jim Carter) joking, "They better be warned the British are coming."

Elizabeth McGovern also stars as Cora Crawley, with Michelle Dockery as Mary Crawley, Laura Carmichael as Edith Crawley, Sophie McShera as Daisy and Lesley Nichol as Mrs. Patmore.

Focus Features released first-look photos for the film last week.

A New Era is a sequel to the ITV series Downtown Abbey, which aired for six seasons from 2010 to 2015, and to the 2019 film Downton Abbey.
