Professor McGonagall and Professor Umbridge will face off on the big screen once again!


Want to see Harry Potter‘s Professor McGonagall and Professor Umbridge face off again on the big screen? You’ll get to see it all if you watch the Downton Abbey movie.

Production for the Downton Abbey movie is underway and we already knew Harry Potter‘s Professor McGonagall would grace our screens as Dame Maggie Smith plays the Dowager Countess Violet Crawley.

New casting, according to Variety, reveals that Imelda Staunton will be in the period drama movie as well, which wraps up all the lingering questions from the final season on the British drama.

Staunton is best known to Harry Potter fans as Dolores Umbridge, who took over as headmaster at the school of witchcraft and wizardry after coming in as the Defense Against the Dark Arts professor.

Despite not being a Death Eater, she is considered, and pretty much confirmed, to be the evilest character in the whole wizarding world, purely because it seems she has no heart at all!

It’s not surprising that Professor McGonagall and Professor Umbridge didn’t get along in the world of Harry Potter. What isn’t quite clear just yet is whether the two will play enemies in Downton Abbey. If they are enemies, then it would likely mean Staunton’s character is an enemy of Mr. Carson, played by Staunton’s real-life husband Jim Carter.

We don’t even have a character name for Staunton just yet. Nor is there much of an idea of what to expect in the movie event. Coming in as some sort of antagonist certainly makes sense. Considering Violet’s dislike for change, we could see Staunton coming in as an advocate for change, siding with Isabel Crawley in that aspect and driving a small wedge between the two friends.
