    The British actress, rising star and recent Baby Driver actress Lily James seems to be taking the world by storm one epic movie at a time, because now she’s landed herself a role in the sequel to the hit musical, Mamma Mia! We hope she likes ABBA…

    Yep, it’s really happening. There really is going to be a Mamma Mia! sequel! And we can’t bloomin’ wait to get back to Kalakari to sing and dance alongside Amanda Seyfried, Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, Christine Baranski, and now Lily James. The young actress will take on the role of ‘Young Donna’ as the sequel explores Donna’s past relationships with the men in her life, and her daughter. The movie will flit back and forth from the past to the present, in a whirling mix of Meryl and Lily.

    The new movie, called Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! Will bring back the movie’s original producers, Gary Goetzman and Judy Craymer to give us a whole load more of ABBA magic, with new songs, new characters, and new storylines. The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel director, Ol Parker is on board to write and direct the sequel, so we can expect it to be quirky, extravagant and hilarious. Just how we like it. ABBA’s Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson will also be returning to the production to serve as executive producers and musical directors – you know, because they wrote and performed the songs in the first place. Makes sense.

    When Mamma Mia! Was first released in 2008, it received international critical acclaim and earned over $600 million at the box office worldwide, so we can expect the sequel to be just as impressive. With a release date of July 20, 2018, they better put on their dancing shoes…
