Almost a decade after the movie musical Mamma Mia! hit the big screen and took ABBA-music lovers to the greek island of Kalokairi, the original cast is back for a sequel — that’s really more like a prequel.
Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Amanda Seyfried, Colan Firth, and more return to tell the backstory of Streep’s character, Donna. How exactly did we end up in this love triangle? Further scandal, Sophie (Seyfried) is pregnant, and no one can know. Except, everyone knows.
The new film, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, which flashes back and forth between the past and present, will see Cinderella star Lily James play a young Donna, and a very fab-looking blonde-wigged Cher steal the show as "grandma"—quotes because the immortal cher could never truly age.
The original screenplay, just like its predecessor, will be full of ABBA’s greatest hits and plenty more dance numbers. After all, Hollywood loves a musical.
