  • Mamma Mia 2

Earlier this year, Universal Studios confirmed the news we'd all been waiting for - a Mamma Mia! sequel was in the works.

Picking up where the original left off, the movie sees a now-pregnant Sophie (played by Amanda Seyfried) reunited with her trio of possible dads (Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth and Stellan Skarsgård) on a Greek island where her mother, Donna (Meryl Streep), has been running an inn. In the second installment, Cinderella's Lily James, Jessica Keenan Wynn and Alexa Davies are set to to take on younger versions of Streep, Baranski and Walters' characters.

"You're telling me I waited 10 years for Mamma Mia 2 and they killed off Donna Sheridan". Here We Go Again may be lacking in star power with a distinct lack of Streep, fear not.

Elsewhere Cher, 71, makes a cameo as Sophie's very glamorous grandmother - and arrives by helicopter in a very Cher-like grand entrance. Amanda Seyfried and Dominic Cooper return as Donna's daughter Sophie and her beau Sky.

New Trailer: 'Sicario 2: Soldado,' With Benicio Del Toro
This time, the sequel focuses on Benicio del Toro's Alejandro, who was a force of nature in the first film. The war on drugs has escalated, and the cartels are escorting terrorists over the USA and Mexico border.

These details have led many viewers to wonder if Donna died in between the events of Mamma Mia! and Mamma Mia!: Here We Go Again.

The character is nearly exclusively mentioned in the past tense, and there is little, if any, new footage of Streep. The two then in turn shares with her stories about young Donna, portrayed by Lily James.

Fans can look out for superstar Cher, who will also be appearing in the fun-filled musical movie.

This will be the first time fans have seen Cher on the big screen since 2010's Burlesque. The movie is written and directed by Ol Parker, who wrote 2011's The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel; Phyllida Lloyd, who directed Mamma Mia, will stay on as an executive producer. Of course, there was a long list of ABBA songs to tie the whole thing together.
