In 2008, Mamma Mia! turned a theatrical smash hit into a cinematic phenomenon. Its mix of Abba’s stunning musical history, beautiful sun-kissed locations, relationship shenanigans and the sight of an A-list cast cutting loose and having a blast, turned it into one of the biggest hits in UK box office history. It was so joyful, exuberant and infectious that a sequel was inevitable. Exactly 10 years later, with all the original leads returning, here we go again…

Written and directed by Ol Parker, whose screenplay for The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel mines a similar seam of charm and fun under the sun, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again picks up 10 years on, with Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) now pregnant. Her mother’s confidantes, Rosie (Julie Walters) and Tanya (Christine Baranski), are called in for moral support and the film begins to flit between past and present, as Sophie learns the trials her own mother went through before Sophie was born, and how those lessons could solve her own worries...
