If you are a fan of the Swedish sensation whose songs include numbers such as “Dancing Queen,” “The Winner Takes It All,” “Does Your Mother Know?” it’s probably safe to say you have watched the film Mamma Mia! countless times.
Maybe you even know that this summer you can go back to the villa on Kalokairi for more adventures. The sequel to the feel-good movie is Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, and it is hitting the big screen at the end of July. While the film is set in the same location as the first, in and around Donna’s villa, most of it has been filmed on a different island, so we’ll be able to enjoy the beautiful scenery of, Vis, in Croatia.
The plot will focus on Donna’s daughter, Sophie, and her life 10 years on from the events of Mamma Mia! She is pregnant with Sky’s child and running her mother’s villa. She’s worried about juggling baby, family, and the villa. Most of the cast from the original movie will be joining her through her pregnancy but we’re sure there will be many new faces and some surprises and twists too.
And of course as it is a musical, you will be able to enjoy a re-visit to many of your favourite ABBA songs. Sounds like it’s going to be one to not miss, but why not watch the trailer just to whet your appetite?
