A grainy version of the trailer leaked earlier this week. If you held out for the high-quality version, it’s finally here. Universal Studios just shared the official first look at Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again.
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).
Seyfried told Entertainment Weekly that the sequel is better than its predecessor. “Truthfully, when they were like, ‘We’re making Mamma Mia 2,’ I was like, ‘That’s going to be terrible.’ But it’s not! It’s amazing.” Based on reactions on the leaked trailer, fans disagree. Seems folks aren’t pleased that Streep’s character might be dead. Mamma Mia indeed!!!
Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again sings its way into theaters on July 20, 2018. Check out the first trailer below. Be sure to stay tuned til the end. Cher knows how to make an entrance. She’s gotta be the fiercest glamma around.
