Is Mamma Mia! going to return for a third movie? Let's explore.
Mamma Mia may make a massive return to the big screen with a third film. The first film absolutely crushed it in the box office grossing a massive $610 million worldwide. The second one didn't gather as many viewers only making $395 million globally. But, is there going to be the third film? Let's explore.
The second movie came out on July 20th, 2018, 10 years after the first one but will we have to wait another 10 years for the second film. Well, Amanda Seyfried is torn, first saying "I don't f**king think so" then saying "beyond yes". As to when it's coming out, at the moment, we don't know but this blog will be updated as soon as new information is released.
Mamma Mia! 3 could either be a full-on reboot with all new characters or go deeper into Amanda Seyfried's character Sophie's story where she explores who's her actual father.
"It could be Mamma Mia! The DNA Test. You finally find out who the dad is," Lily James joked during an interview.
If there is a reboot then the original cast may not return but in the case of a continuation of the story, we can expect Amanda Seyfried to make a return as Sophie. We can also expect Dominic Cooper to make a return as Sky.
Meryl Streep's character Donna Sheridan may not make a return as she passed away in the second movie. But there is a possibility that the younger version of Donna Sheridan's character may return with Lily James.
Lily James sparked rumors of her return when she was seen frolicking on the island of Vis in Croatia in May which is where some of the sequel was filmed.
Donna's mother, Ruby Sheridan, played by Cher is expected to return to play somewhat of a grandmotherly role.
Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth and Stellan Skarsgård who played the three dads will possibly make a return if the story explores who Sophie's real dad is.
Let's however not rule out Meryl Streep's return. She did return in the sequel as a ghost during the christening of Sophie's daughter. So maybe we can expect to see more of her in the third film.
No there isn't but feel free to enjoy the trailer for the second film.
