Get ready to sing and dance, laugh and love all over again. Universal Pictures has released the official first look trailer for ‘Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again,’ the forthcoming sequel to 2008’s ABBA-packed film musical ‘Mamma Mia!’
Ten years after ‘Mamma Mia! The Movie’ grossed more than €500 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. With the film’s original cast returning and new additions including Lily James (‘Cinderella,’ ‘Baby Driver’), the musical comedy will open on July 20, 2018.
Reprising their roles from ‘Mamma Mia! The Movie’ 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.
As the film goes back and forth in time to show how relationships forged in the past resonate in the present, 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’).
