The Winner Takes it All
Today, my world was shaken because we were blessed with the first look at the sequel to the 2008 Broadway musical turned movie musical “Mamma Mia!”
“Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again!” follows after the events of the first movie, I’m going to guess like a year because Sophie, played by Amanda Seyfried, is pregnant and without the guidance of Meryl Streep, aka her and everyone’s mother. That is right, they fucking killed off Meryl Streep in this movie. They have “confirmed” that she’s dead but there are subtle hints throughout the trailer. Anyways, the gang gets back together on the island to help Sophie cope with her anxiety about taking care of a child without her beloved late mother. This starts a bunch of flashbacks about how her mother met her three dads (if you haven’t seen the first movie, this is extremely confusing). It pretty much sets up how it all started.
The trailer itself actually doesn’t look bad at all. It actually looks better than the first one. The big news out of all of this is the fact that motherfucking CHER is Meryl Streep’s mother. As soon as I saw that Cher was in this movie, I was shaking. Then I saw that she was actually Meryl’s mother. My world turned upside down and I died a pop culture death. Overall, this movie looks to be everything and I am here for this. I just hope the music is good. The original music wasn’t bad but it could have been way better.
Here’s the trailer for the movie. It will be released July 20, 2018. Of course, that could change in between now and then. It is Hollywood after all.
