Four days ago, the Downton Abbey Twitter posted this:

You may have seen me squealing about it somewhere on the social media.
Anyway, I didn’t think they’d get to a Downton Abbey movie this soon–the show hasn’t been off the air that long.
I expect the production to be pretty tight-lipped about plot and whatnot, but:
-The series finale ended on New Year’s Day, 1926. So is it picking up from there? Is it skipping time?
-How many of the cast will be back? It’s a huge cast.
-Seriously, the Dowager Countess is still alive? Isn’t she like 140 years old by now?
