Mamma Mia 2 has officially wrapped filming and we are pretty damn excited.
Lily James shared an image on Instagram, with the caption: ‘That. Is.A.WRAP. This was the happiest most wonderful job. I loved it all. And everyone. Big up Mamma Mia 2. Crew . Cast. Abba ! Love you 😱 #mammamia2’
Ten years after the first film’s release, Meryl Streep, Amanda Seyfried, Pierce Brosnan and Colin Firth all confirmed that they’d be regrouping for the sequel, Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again.
Lily will be joining the cast to play a younger version of Meryl Streep’s character, Donna Sheridan. Her love interest will be the new actor, Josh Dylan. Rumour has it, Josh plays a younger version of Bill, a Swedish sailor who could possibly be the father of Sophie (Amanda Seyfried).
But the jaw-dropping cast does not stop there, one major star is joining the crew in the musical movie… CHER!
Yes, you’ve read that right – the iconic singer will lend her voice and acting skills to Mamma Mia 2. Back in October, Cher took to Twitter to tease her new project, sharing photos of some 80s worthy boots, the title of an ABBA song and then breaking the news that she was already rehearsing.

According to Deadline, Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! “goes back and forth in time to show how relationships forged in the past resonate in the present”. That would explain the need for younger versions of the main characters then.
The rumoured release date is July 20, 2018, and ABBA hits that weren’t used in the first film, including Knowing Me, Knowing You and Waterloo, will reportedly feature on the song list.
We. Can’t. Wait.
