We are living for this.
She may not have attended the 2018 Grammy Awards on Sunday night, but Cher still managed to steal the spotlight in a brand new trailer for Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, which aired during the ceremony.
The 71-year-old will play Sophie’s grandmother, Ruby Sheridan, in the much-anticipated musical sequel.
As well as offering more footage of Cher acting in the movie, the Grammys teaser also gives fans their first listen of her contribution to the official soundtrack in the form of a cover of Abba’s 1976 classic Fernando.
Take a watch (and listen) below.
A steady stream of trailers and teasers for the movie have been released this year, and while the hype is brewing, fans have noticed a worrying lack of one of the key elements of the original movie’s success – Meryl Streep.
The Academy Award winner doesn’t have any new scenes in the trailers – even though she was confirmed to return – and her character only appears via flashback, with Lily James playing a young Donna (Streep’s character).
Is Donna dead, or are they throwing us off? Probably the latter, but fans are in uproar…
Alongside Meryl, Julie Walters, Christine Baranski, Amanda Seyfried and Dominic Cooper all reprise their roles from the first film, with Cher joining the cast as Donna’s mother.
Pierce Brosnan, Stellan Skarsgård and Colin Firth will return to play Sophie’s three possible dads: Sam, Bill and Harry.
Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is produced by Judy Craymer and Gary Goetzman, who produced the original film. Craymer also created and produced the stage musical of which the film is based on.
It will be released officially on 20 July, 2018 – ten years and two days after Mamma Mia! opened.
