Film trucks and catering marquees have been erected in the sprawling grounds of Highclere Castle as filming for the Downton Abbey sequel gets underway.

The beloved BBC series is being adapted into a second movie following the first’s box office success, with cast and crew returning to the set in Hampshire, England.

Little is known about the upcoming movie, but it has been confirmed that Hugh Dancy, Laura Haddock, Nathalie Baye and Dominic West have joined the cast, and it is expected to be released at Christmas.

Aerial pictures from the set show that production is now well and truly underway for the film sequel, which began filming earlier this month.
