MAMMA MIA! Sequel Trailer Is Here

22 December 2017

USA actress Meryl Streep waves to journalists at a press conference to promote her movie "Mamma Mia!" in Tokyo on January 22, 2009.

The first trailer for Mamma Mia!: Here We Go Again was released this morning, giving fans a first look at the sequel to the beloved onscreen ABBA musical that released in 2008.

Playing young Donna is Lily James, best known for her roles on the TV series Downtown Abbey, and the films Cinderella, Fast Girls, Baby Driver, and Darkest Hour.

The story begins with Sophie calling on her mother's best friends Rosie and Tanya (played again by Walters and Christine Baranski), who recall what her mother was like while she was pregnant. Get set to watch Mamma Mia Here We Go Again which is scheduled for a July 2018 release! Here We Go Again, the musical movie is once again inspired by the music of ABBA and filled with star power in the form of Amanda Seyfried, Pierce Brosnan and Colin Firth. The sequel welcomes Lily James to the ensemble, taking on the role of a younger Donna.

The trailer's closing moments feature Sophie's grandmother, played by none other than Cher, stopping by the island via helicopter.

The musical-comedy will bring back Academy Award victor Meryl Streep as Donna, Julie Walters as Rosie and Christine Baranski as Tanya. She also only appears in the trailer in scenes from the first movie. According to US Magazine, some fans are interpreting that line as a troublesome sign about Donna's fate, saying, "why is she talking about her mother like she's not there?"

What do you think of this new trailer? "What a great idea to make a sequel to Mamma Mia where Donna Sheridan is dead, said no one ever", one user wrote.

While Streep is credited as an actor in the film, her appearances could be in flashback scenes used to remember Donna.

Streep's character was previously heard moaning: "Somebody up there has got it in for me".
