Ten years after Mamma Mia! The Movie hit cinema screens all around the world, Universal have confirmed that a new movie is coming!
The movie giant revealed that original cast is expected to reunite for the sequel, alongside some new faces. That’s right, Meryl Streep, Julie Walters,Christine Baranski, Amanda Seyfried and Pierce Brosnan could be back serving up a little Abba number once again – bright costumes and glorious sunny location hopefully, too!
Don’t worry, there’s even going to be something new musically as the sequel will feature Abba songs that were NOT included in the 2008 movie. It’s expected that some of our favourite Abba hits will however make a welcomed return.
The movie is based off the internationally acclaimed stage musical that’s produced and created by Judy Craymer.

Abba’s Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus have confirmed they’re joining the creative team once again to provide music and lyrics – they’ll also serve as executive producers.
Oh… and the movie is expected to still be set on a Greek island. Sun, songs and boys in shorts. Oh we do like Mamma Mia!
Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again will be written and directed by Ol Parker of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel success . It will be released officially on 20 July 20 2018 – ten years and two days after Mamma Mia! opened.
Is this the perfect time to blast out Dancing Queen? It seems fitting…
