It’s been a few years since Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again was released and there have still been no official announcements about the sequel. But director Ol Parker has been vocal with his updates on Twitter. “Judy Craymer has a plan, she always does, and I know it’s going to be brilliant and exciting! I can see her enthusiasm through the screen when we Skype. When Judy is enthusiastic, then you know things are moving forward behind the scenes even if they might not appear so on the surface, so please be patient!” shares Parker in an interview with Deadline. He continues, “And I’m just waiting to hear from Judy about a new draft of the script. The story is great. She has an idea for a third one and she says she wants me to be involved. And we’re going to see how it goes. I think it’s going to be brilliant. So hold on tight and sit back and enjoy the ride. The first two films made such a huge impact and I enjoyed making them so much, and then to all of a sudden be catapulted into the third.

About the film Mamma mia?  

Mamma Mia is a 2008 musical romantic comedy-drama film directed by Phyllida Lloyd and starring Meryl Streep. It was released on July 18, 2008, in China and the United States, and the film has grossed $611 million worldwide. The plot centers around Donna (Streep), who is preparing for her daughter’s wedding with the help of two old friends she invited to Greece to help plan it. Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) is trying to find out if her husband has been unfaithful but unbeknownst to her, he agrees to pretend he’s not Sophie’s father so that they can have their cake and eat it too.  Meanwhile, the three old friends are trying to rekindle their love interests. The film received generally positive reviews, with critics praising Streep’s performance and the action and comedy sequences in the film. The film was nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actress for Strep, and a supporting acting nomination for Hugh Grant.

What fans are expecting from Mamma Mia 3? 

Fans of the saga are expecting to see Donna’s daughter Sophie’s wedding on film. It is expected that for the wedding to be a success, Donna needs to reunite with three old friends: Harry (Pierce Brosnan), Stavros (Andy Garcia), and Bill (Stellan Skarsgård). The film is also expected to highlight the love triangle between Sophie, her husband Sky (Dominic Cooper), and her former lover, Harry. Although the film will follow a similar format as that of its predecessors – with musical numbers featuring some of the most well-known songs by ABBA in between scenes – it will also have an original score by British singer-songwriter Imogen Heap. 

What are the reviews? 

The film has been received positively for the story and Streep’s performance.  Saoirse Ronan and Amanda Seyfried have both been praised for their performances in the film. In particular, Ronan’s performance as young Donna has been noted as her most mature to date. On review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 78% based on 181 reviews, with an average rating of 6/10. The website’s critical consensus reads: “While it no doubt lacks the freshness of its predecessors, Meryl Streep’s delightful chemistry with her co-stars makes Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is well worth seeing.
