Screen Rant is happy to share a clip centered on Tom & Lucy’s wedding from the Downton Abbey: A New Era Blu-ray, which releases August 6 in Canada.
Screen Rant is thrilled to present a behind-the-scenes clip celebrating the Canadian home release of Downton Abbey: A New Era, which will be available to own on Digital July 26 and on Blu-ray, 4K, and DVD August 9. As a follow-up not only to the first Downton Abbey movie in 2019, but to six seasons of a beloved television series, the film had a lot to live up to – and yet viewers were left satisfied.
Downton Abbey: A New Era follows the fan-favorite Crawley family on a new adventure, which takes Robert (Hugh Bonneville) and Cora (Elizabeth McGovern) to the South of France in order to learn about a mysterious villa that the Dowager Countess (Maggie Smith) inherited. Meanwhile, Mary (Michelle Dockery) holds down the homefront as a film crew steps in to make a movie on the property. Of course, Downton Abbey is a world of happy-ever-afters, and it’s only natural that the film covers one which began in its last theatrical outing: the love story of Tom (Allen Leech) and Lucy (Tuppence Middleton).
In the exclusive behind-the-scenes clip from Downton Abbey: A New Era’s home release, home economist Debi Lindsay breaks down the beautiful, subtle and mostly fake cake for Tom and Lucy’s wedding. She shares how the fruit cake bottom – which must be real in order for the actors to cut into on the day – took 11 hours to make. Check out the full clip below:
Historical advisor Alastair Bruce, who additionally played the role of vicar for the lovebirds’ wedding, explains how he watches out for period-accurate costumes, hats, and even mixing of the classes. Thanks to his efforts, as well as the entire crew of Downton Abbey: A New Era, Tom and Lucy were able to have a dream wedding that still adhered to the time.
