The 'Mamma Mia 2' Trailer Is Here, But Where's Meryl Streep?

Mamma Mia Here We Go Again is scheduled for a June 20 release

Mamma Mia Here We Go Again is scheduled for a June 20 release

Earlier this year, Universal Studios confirmed the news we'd all been waiting for - a Mamma Mia! sequel was in the works.

Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan & Colin Firth are back for the sequel to the uber popular Mamma Mia, which is set for Irish release on July 20th 2018.

It certainly made a lot of fans excited for the sequel, which will take place in the present and the past, flashing back to a young Donna played by Lily James.

While Streep is credited as an actor in the film, her appearances could be in flashback scenes used to remember Donna.

Ten years after Mamma Mia! The new footage features Donna's best friends, played by Christine Baranski and Julie Walters, with Seyfried, as well as Brosnan, Firth and Skarsgard, but not Streep. The first Mamma Mia was a breakout hit, grossing over $600 million against a budget of $52 million. "Truthfully, when they were like, 'We're making Mamma Mia 2,' I was like, "That's going to be awful.'" she told Entertainment Weekly, before adding: "But it's not!"

Well, here we go again, I guess.

Elsewhere, Cher is seen for the first time playing Sophie's grandmother - though her debut in the franchise has been somewhat overshadowed by everyone's concern for Donna. Do you think Meryl Streep's character could be killed off?

Of course, you never know; Donna may be alive and off on her own adventures.

Almost 10 years after it hit theaters, Mamma Mia, the movie based on the Broadway musical, is getting a sequel.

Fans can look out for superstar Cher, who will also be appearing in the fun-filled musical movie.

The film will be directed by Ol Parker, who also serves as the film's writer.
