The first trailer for Mamma Mia!: Here We Go Again was just released and one half of the world can’t get enough! The other half are left scratching their heads asking “You did see the first one right?”
The trailer shows Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) is pregnant and preparing for motherhood. Her mom’s best friends Tanya (Christine Baranski) and Rosie (Julie Walters) are there, but they seem to be referring to Sophie’s mom, Donna (Meryl Streep), in the past tense. Meryl Streep does reprise her role, but it appears to be primarily in flashbacks. SPOLIERS.
Much of the original film’s cast will also be reprising their roles including Sophie’s three fathers (Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth and Stellan Skarsgård).
Mamma Mia, the musical featuring songs by ABBA, became a worldwide sensation when it premiered in 1999. The show has grossed more than $2 billion since its debut. The original film, based on the musical, debuted in 2008. It grossed more than $600 million.
