Here We Go Again!

It’s hard to believe that it has been ten years since Meryl Streep and Amanda Seyfried first graced the screen as the dynamic mother-daughter duo of Donna and Sophie whom we’ve come to know in love in the original Mamma Mia! film. I mean, who doesn’t love a great rom-com musical?! From the vibrant cast, to the gorgeous scenery of a little island in Greece, to the AMAZING musical numbers throughout, Mamma Mia! has become a classic sing-along film that has won over the hearts of our generation. And now (as if the original film wasn’t enough of a gift from the Goddess that is Meryl Streep), Streep, Seyfried, and many more of the original cast members are returning to the big screen in Mamma Mia 2: Here We Go Again!.
If you’re anything like me, you probably know the Mamma Mia! soundrack better than our national anthem (let’s be honest, it is my anthem). The trailer for the summer blockbuster was released this past January and revealed that many original cast members will be returning to the screen with Streep and Seyfried, including Julie Walters, Colin Firth, Pierce Brosnan, Stellan Skarsgard, Christene Baranski, and Dominic Cooper. And you can’t forget the monumental addition to an already incredible cast: Cher will be joining the crew, playing Donna’s mother, as the plot goes back and forth between Sophie’s current day pregnancy and flashbacks to young Donna’s summer adventures, which were a pinnacle of the original film’s plot (“and DOT DOT DOT”).
So, until the film’s release on July 20th, you can fill your days between now and then by singing and dancing along to the original Mamma Mia!, which was added to Netflix in preparation for the film of the summer (#blessed). See you in theatres, my dancing queens!
