The 2018 sequel, Mamma Mia! Right here We Go Once more, which debuted ten years after the 2008 movie, revealed that Streep’s character Donna had died. Her loss of life kicks off the storyline, which sees her daughter Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) working to reopen the Resort Villa Donna to honor her mom. Alongside the best way, she learns extra about Donna’s previous, which options flashbacks of younger Donna (Lily James) and the way she met Sophie’s fathers. Whereas Streep doesn’t seem within the film a lot, she does make a cameo on the finish.

She felt the love round her and the enjoyment of reuniting with these folks, so I believe that made her extra open to the prospect of a 3rd.”
As for the way Donna would return for an additional sequel, Streep has beforehand brainstormed some concepts.

Seyfried mentioned, “I dare you to indicate me one one that doesn’t need a third Mamma Mia!“
“I textual content Judy each different day, ‘Quantity three when?’” Cooper added. “I do know we’re all dying to do it, and Meryl was positively bummed about not being in a lot of the second. She understood that was the place the story goes, however I bear in mind her saying, “Properly, I didn’t wanna be lifeless.”
And if Craymer had it her method, “Mamma Mia 3 could be within the can already. There needs to be one other one as a result of folks need it.”
