New Mamma Mia trailer teases Cher cameo and hints at shock death

Adjust Comment Print

Filming has now finished on Mamma Mia! Amanda Seyfried and Dominic Cooper reunite as Sophie and Sky, while Pierce Brosnan, Stellan Skarsgård and Oscar victor Colin Firth return to play Sophie's three possible dads: Sam, Bill and Harry.

Instead, we get to see young Donna (played by Cinderella star Lily James) get courted by her three well as how Sophie came to be.

Early in the trailer, Sophie confides to Rosie and Tanya, "I'm pregnant but I don't know how to do this myself". The sequel to the original Mamma Mia! film, which grossed a massive $609.8 million back in 2008, will evidently take place partly in Donna and Sophie's present, and partly in Donna's past.

Lily James, who fleetingly used her handsome singing voice in Baby Driver, joins the cast as young Donna.

The musical-comedy will bring back Academy Award victor Meryl Streep as Donna, Julie Walters as Rosie and Christine Baranski as Tanya.

The new CME future traded above $20,000 but volume was lowly and the cash price soon slipped into negative territory. It was last at US$18,805, below the US$19,500 reference price set by the exchange for the January contract.

Oh, and as you might imagine, the trailer also features plenty of ABBA music. The movie's release date is July 20, 2018.

Lily James will play a young Donna. And did we hear Walters say "your mother was the bravest person we ever met?" before Baranski launches into Streep's character's life story?

"By myself"? Sophie's fiancé, Sky (Dominic Cooper), was shown later on in the footage, but her mom is largely M.I.A. for the present-day scenes. In the end, Sam's the man and, having been Donna's true love, ends up marrying her. Sophie has her answer, everyone's happy, they go off singing, and the story is finished.

What do you think of the new additions to the cast?

However, one detail from the trailer has Mamma Mia fans anxious about the sequel.

While we get a few shots of modern-day Streep-and the official press release promises that, yes, the actress will be in the film-the trailer seems to suggest that those appearances are posthumous.
