Unlike the first clip which only featured the “Believe” singer at the end, the 71-year-old icon takes center stage this time around. Not only is there more footage of her, looking ever so fierce as the world’s hottest glam-ma, but we get a snippet of Cher covering ABBA’s classic hit “Fernando.”
While we see more of Cher in the new trailer, there’s still no confirmation on the sequel’s most controversial mystery. Is present-day Donna, played by Meryl Streep, dead or not? Though it seems like she is, I’m still holding out hope that it’s all a red herring and that, in fact, she’s alive.
Ten years after Mamma Mia! The Movie grossed more than $600 million around the world, you are invited to return to the magical Greek island of Kalokairi in an all-new original musical based on the songs of ABBA. Reprising their roles from first film are Meryl Streep as Donna, Julie Walters as Rosie and Christine Baranski as Tanya. Amanda Seyfried and Dominic Cooper reunite as Sophie and Sky, while Pierce Brosnan, Stellan Skarsgård and Colin Firth return to play Sophie’s three possible dads: Sam, Bill and Harry.
The sequel goes back and forth in time to show how relationships forged in the past resonate in the present. Lily James will play the role of Young Donna. Filling the roles of Young Rosie and Young Tanya are Alexa Davies (A Brilliant Young Mind) and Jessica Keenan Wynn (Broadway’s Beautiful). Young Sam will be played by Jeremy Irvine (War Horse), while Young Bill is Josh Dylan (Allied) and Young Harry is Hugh Skinner (Kill Your Friends).
Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again sings its way into theaters on July 20, 2018. Check out the new clip below.
