We can’t quite believe it’s been ten years since Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, Julie Walters, Pierce Brosnan and Christine Baranski hit our screens in the Abba tribute movie, Mamma Mia! The success of the original and a need for nostalgia has meant we will again return to the Greek Island of Kalokairi in 2018 with an all-new, all singing and dancing sequel.

In the sequel, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, the story will jump back and forth in time to show how relationships forged in the past resonate in the present. Returning cast members include Academy Award® winner Meryl Streep as Donna, Julie Walters as Rosie and Christine Baranski as Tanya. Amanda Seyfried and Dominic Cooper reunite as Sophie and Sky, while Pierce Brosnan, Stellan Skarsgård and Oscar® winner Colin Firth return to play Sophie’s three possible dads: Sam, Bill and Harry, with a few new additions including Lily James who takes on the role of the younger version of Streep’s character.

We recently spoke with Lily James for Darkest Hour where we questioned her about playing the young version of Donna played by Meryl Streep in the original and reprising her role in the sequel. Watch what she had to say below.

Ol Parker, the writer of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, writes and directs the sequel from a story by Catherine Johnson, Richard Curtis and Parker. Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus return to provide music and lyrics and serve as executive producers. Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson, Phyllida Lloyd, Richard Curtis and Nicky Kentish Barnes also serve as executive producers.
