Mamma Mia sequel

The movie musical will return to cinemas in July 2018 for an epic sequel starring the original cast.

Meryl Street and her 'Mamma Mia' co-stars have signed up for a sequel to the smash-hit movie musical said to hit screens in July 2018.

Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth and Amanda Seyfried are all set to return to celebrate even more of Abba's greatest hits.

It's rumoured that 'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' screenwriter Ol Parker will be responsible for penning and directing the new flick.

The iconic musical focused on a bride-to-be (Amanda Seyfried) trying to find her real father so that he can walk her down the aisle on her big day. But she's in for a shock when she realises that there are three potential men that could be her biological dad.

It's not yet known how bosses plan to push the story on but it's thought they may decide to follow the angle of how Sophie's (Seyfried) mother Donna (Meryl Streep) met the three men; Sam Carmichael (Pierce Brosnan), Harry Bright (Colin Firth) and Bill Anderson (Stellan Skarsgård) in the years before the original takes place.

The sequel will feature more ABBA songs that weren't included in the 2008 movie such as 'Knowing Me, Knowing You', 'Thank You For The Music', 'Fernando', 'Name of the Game' and 'Waterloo'.

Fans were left super-excited when the official Twitter account for the movie posted: "IT'S OFFICIAL MAMMA MIA: HERE WE GO AGAIN in cinemas JULY 2018 #HereWeGoAgain (sic)"
