Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again Trailer (2018)
Trailer for Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again Ten years after Mamma Mia! The Movie grossed more than $600 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).
Ol Parker, writer of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, writes and directs the sequel from a story by Catherine Johnson, Richard Curtis and Parker. Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus return to provide music and lyrics and serve as executive producers. Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson, Phyllida Lloyd, Richard Curtis and Nicky Kentish Barnes also serve as executive producers.
Reprising their roles from Mamma Mia! The Movie are Academy Award winner 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 Oscar winner 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).
Did I think they needed to do a sequel to Mamma Mia!...no. But it is always tempting for a studio to make a sequel after a film is a big success. Although the first film did not come rushing out with a huge opening weekend at the box office (just $27 million), with a budget of $52 million it went on to make more than $600 million around the world.
I must say that although I do not think a sequel was needed, the story they put together is pretty good. The one question that was central to the first film is once again the focus here, who is Sophie's dad? And they go back to when her mom Donna (Meryl Streep) was younger and first meets the three young men. But, they already used up ABBA's great songs in the first film, so will they just use the same songs again? Hopefully the film will not feel forced, like putting Cher into the trailer at the end.
