Meryl Streep and Cher among stars at premiere of Mamma Mia sequel

Amanda Seyfried SGSeyfried teams up with Christine Baranski and Julie Walters
Rosie Leonard | 18 July, 2018, 10:23

If you want to catch these icons, don't forget to catch Mamma Mia! Speaking to People, she said, "I was thrilled to death, and it was so silly". Here We Go Again out this week, I have the zeal of the convert. "I mean, she steals the movie!"

As she reunites with her fathers, Sophie asks them how they met her mother.

Pop legend Cher on Tuesday announced an album of Abba covers as she stars in a film sequel to "Mamma Mia!", the musical inspired by the iconic Swedish group. Because it was the day that Sam (Pierce Brosnan) and Donna (Meryl Streep) had a romantic evening where they "danced on the beach, kissed on the beach, and dot dot dot" according to Donna's diary, which Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) finds and reads.

"Singing the song My Love, My Life was the most emotional thing for me, and my favourite moment", Seyfried previously declared.

The sequel's cast additions include Lily James, who plays the younger Donna, and Cher, who portrays Donna's mother. It was great fun, and I love her, so it was flawless. Now, with Mamma Mia! Indeed, much of the present day movie plot struggles to carry it's own without Meryl - until Cher arrives, that is.

"After I did 'Fernando, ' I thought it would be really fun to do an album of Abba songs, so I did", Cher said on the NBC television daytime show "Today".

We can't wait to hear what other songs she'll be covering!

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again lays all of its Abba love on us with platform heels, tongue-in-cheek humour and joy-infused musical performances choreographed to perfection by Anthony Van Laast.

"It's a great time for this movie to be out in the world, because we're all feeling a little down about the world right now", Baranski said.
