Downton Abbey fans are counting down the days until the new film hits theaters, and now that we're just weeks away from its premiere on September 20, tickets have started to go on pre-sale.

Of course, you don't have to pre-order your tickets; we expect this movie to run for a long while, but if you're looking for a particular date or time on opening weekend, you might want to go ahead and book. According to the Hollywood Reporter, advanced ticket sales for Downton Abbey have been better than for any other drama in 2019 so far, including Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

"In its TV run, Downton Abbey garnered an incredible global following," Fandango's managing editor Erik Davis told the publication. "The first-day sales are among the best we've seen for any movie this year."

This news shouldn't come as too much of a surprise. After all, Downton Abbey was the most-watched drama in PBS history, and much-beloved by its television audience. The film reportedly picks up fairly close to where the show left off, and nearly every member of the cast, including Maggie Smith, is returning for the feature.

"Since the series ended, fans of Downton have long been waiting for the Crawley family’s next chapter," Focus Features chairman Peter Kujawski said in a statement announcing the film last July. "We’re thrilled to join this incredible group of filmmakers, actors and craftspeople, led by Julian Fellowes and Gareth Neame, in bringing back the world of Downton to the big screen."

The movie hits theaters in the U.S. on September 20.
