  • Meryl Streep and Amanda Seyfried in Mamma Mia

"When you realize Cher, 71, is playing the mother of Meryl Streep, 68 in Mamma Mia 2", one fan wrote.

The first trailer for Mamma Mia!: Here We Go Again was released today, and fans of the movie were quick to realise that one very important character is missing. Hoping to inspire Sophie to find strength and courage, her family friends (Julie Walters and Christine Baranski) begin chronicling the early years of her mother, Donna (Meryl Streep), who raised Sophie on her own.

Amanda Seyfried returns as Sophie in the film.

Already finding herself in a predicament, Sophie's world is turned upside down after learning her grandma (Cher) makes an unexpected visit to their Greek island of Kalokairi.

James is joined by Alexa Davies as young Rosie and Jessica Keenan Wynn as young Tanya, as they portray the three close pals at a younger age. "Let's get the party started", Cher's character exclaims, only for Seyfried's Sophie to inform her that she wasn't invited.




Oh, and as you might imagine, the trailer also features plenty of ABBA music.

The movie is scheduled for release next July. She first teased that she was joining Mamma Mia 2back in October, where else, on Twitter, posting lyrics from ABBA's track "Fernando". Craymer also created and produced the popular stage musical, which should delight fans that saw it on stage. Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson, Phyllida Lloyd, Richard Curtis and Nicky Kentish Barnes also serve as executive producers.

But where, precisely, is Sophie's titular mother Donna, played by Meryl Streep? They are Stellan Skarsgard as Swedish writer and adventurer Bill Anderson, Colin Firth as British banker Harry Bright, and Pierce Brosnan as Irish-American architect Sam Carmichael.

Instead, we get to see young Donna (played by Cinderella star Lily James) get courted by her three suitors.as well as how Sophie came to be. Young Sam is played by Jeremy Irvine ("War Horse"), and young Bill is Josh Dylan ("Allied") and young Harry is Hugh Skinner ("Kill Your Friends").
