Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is a musical romantic comedy just like the sequeal before this. The film directed and written by Ol Parker, from a story by Parker, Catherine Johnson, and Richard Curtis. It is the prequel to the 2008 film Mamma Mia!, which is based on the musical of the same name. The film stars Lily James, Amanda Seyfried, Christine Baranski, Julie Walters, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, Stellan Skarsgård, Dominic Cooper, Cher and Meryl Streep. It is scheduled to be released ten years to the month of the original film’s release.
Five years after the events of Mamma Mia!, on the Greek island of Kalokairi, Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) is pregnant with Sky’s (Dominic Cooper) child while running her mother’s (Meryl Streep) villa. Her relationship with Sky has been turbulent for some time, giving her cause to doubt that she can survive without her mother, Donna. Surrounded y her mother’s friends Tanya and Rosie’s she feels safer as they guide her through her mother’s past life. Sophie discovers more of Donna’s past, including how she fronted The Dynamos, started her villa on the island from nothing, met each one of Sophie’s dads, and raised a daughter, without a mother to guide her. She also has an unexpected visit from someone she had not ever even met: her grandmother, Ruby Sheridan (Cher).
The Abba inspired musical takes us through songs we have loved we wonder which Abba classics will make it into the movie sequel. Already the trailer has given us three songs; I Have A Dream, Dancing Queen and Mamma Mia. Sophie will be performing with her mum’s pals, played by Christine Baranski and Julie Walters, Jeremy Irvine plays young Colin Firth and apparently Cher plays Meryl Streep’s mum, as Amanda refers to her as “Grandma”.
The music is inspiring and the performance is entertaining, we get a peep into Donna’s (Meryl Streep) life as a young woman and Sophie gets to unite with her grandma (Cher) for the first time. You don’t want to miss this.
