“Mamma Mia!”, a fresh family saga punctuated by covers of the famous group Abba, will she return yes or no for a long-awaited third part?
Mama Mia! Here We Go Again : a successful sequel
Before Mama Mia! Here We Go Againthe very first opus of Mama Mia! arrives during 2008 in dark rooms. We follow the story of Sophie (Amanda Seyfried), a young woman who is about to marry her fiancé. The festivities take place on the Greek island of Kalokairi. For the occasion, the future bride has a very precise idea behind the head. Indeed, she invites in the greatest secrecy three men (Colin Firth, Stellan Skarsgård and Pierce Brosnan) likely to be her parent! Donna (Meryl Streep), Sophie’s mother, clearly does not expect to see her former lovers arrive at her hotel establishment. A very eventful marriage in perspective !
Mama Mia! is nothing else that adaptation of a musical tribute to the famous group Abba. If the film does not convince the critics, it achieves a good performance at the box office and puts the spectators in the pocket. The production is not long in putting a sequel in the works! An idea which at first sight does not please Meryl Streep at all. Obviously, the actress had not considered the possibility of a second film. However, ten years later, Mama Mia! Here We Go Again finally hits the screens. This time, the plot of the feature film revolves around professional life and no longer personal to Sophie. As she tries to manage her parent’s hotel on Kalokairi, the young woman encounters a number of difficulties. Whether his mother is now deceased, it is her friends who decide to help her. They are quick to advise him to draw inspiration from Donna’s journey. In this regard, it is the actress Lily James who plays the character of Meryl Streep in her youth.
When is volume 3?
Obviously, a third part of Mama Mia! should see the light of day. Judy Craymer, one of the producers, confided on the subject to our colleagues from The Daily Mail in the summer of 2020. While she and her colleagues were about to embark on the preparation of this new project, the pandemic has changed everything. But don’t worry! According to her, Mama Mia! is thought to be a trilogy and Universal studios are more than interested in a new opus. Certainly encouraging news, but which does not allow us to speculate as to a potential release date for the sequel. Mama Mia! Here We Go Again.
As for the actors, impatience is in order! Stellan Skarsgård, interviewed by Screening during the promotion of Duneconfides that it would be very ready to resume service. The famous actor would also like to see Dave Bautista, who plays alongside him in Denis Villeneuve’s film, in the sequel to the musical. Last January, the talented Christine Baranski reacted in turn in the pages ofEntertainment Weekly.
It would be fun to all meet again on this island.
Same story with the rest of the cast, from Colin Firth to Lily James. Last year, Amanda Seyfried even added in The Late Show with Stephen Colbert that, if it were up to her, the team would not stop at 3 !
