I’m no fan of ABBA by any means, but what took this movie so long to get a sequel?
After an insanely successful tour as a musical theatre show, the 2008 movie release saw over $600 million at the worldwide box office, and over $100 million in North America. For most other movies, the sequel would’ve been in the works mere weeks after the films release.
In any case, it’s been confirmed that it’s happening, with a new mix of ABBA songs. The original cast has also confirmed they’ll be in for the sequel as well, with big names such as Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Amanda Seyfried, and Colin Firth just to name a few.
Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again is scheduled for release in July 2018.
