It has been almost two years since Downton Abbey's final episode. And if you've found yourself missing the British drama, there's good news.

Lady Rose MacClare herself, Lily James, has revealed that most of the cast is game for the movie. "I hope (it happens). I think everyone is on board," the actress divulged Thursday during an interview on Australia's The Project, while promoting new film Baby Driver with co-star Ansel Elgort. "People will be up for it," she added.

Elgort jumped in with a faux British accent, stating "I'd love to do a Downton Abbey movie!" Honestly, we're all for it!

Just a few weeks ago, NBCUniversal International Studios President, Michael Edelstein, confirmed a film was definitely happening for 2018—with 20 cast members from the show hopefully coming on board. "There's a movie in the works. It's been in the works for some time," he said. "We are working on getting the script right and then we've got to figure out how to get the (cast) together. Because as you know, people go on and do other things. But we're hopeful to make a movie sometime next year."

[MUSIC] I can hardly believe it. I used to come here all the time as a boy. [SOUND] Run to Mommy, Georgie. Edith alone on the town. What will she get up to? So what do you think I should do? Would you like a Londonite? The fact is I'd like a life. I should let the young ones console each other. I just want to be his friend, Mrs. Hughes. We must run this place as it should be run. Who has an under butler these days? I suppose you've settled into the routine by this time? I think so. I like it here. Mrs. Hughes. You don't think maybe you should start calling me Elsie? not here. Not while we're working. Oh dear, I do hope I haven't cast a shadow. What did you think you were doing, sprinkling sunshine? So you want to protect your power at the expense of the patients? I want to protect the patients at the expense of my power. And may the best man win.
