This has bothered me since the “Downton Abbey” movie came out in 2019 and when the trailer was suggested on Youtube today, it finally hit me.
The did something with CGI to Dame Maggie Smith’s eyes in the final cut of the movie.
In the official trailer, Dame Maggie looks like Dame Maggie, as regal and glorious as ever.
In the same clip in the actual movie, they modified her left eye a bit.
Subconsciously I knew something had changed but I couldn’t put my finger on it. Not that I would put my finger in her eye or anything, but I’m happy I’ve resolved this little niggling in the back of my head.
And I wish they’d do another Downton Abbey movie.
