By Haley Lerner

In this entertaining comedy, which releases in theaters on July 20, 2018, 10 years after the events of Mamma Mia!, Sophie (played by Amanda Seyfried) is pregnant with her fiancé Sky’s child on the Greek island of Kalokairi while running her mother’s villa. But, Sophie is unsure she can do it all by herself, so she enlists the guidance of her mother Donna’s friends and former bandmates, Tanya and Rosie (played by Christine Baranski and Julie Walters, respectively). Throughout the movie, Sophie learns more about Donna (played by Meryl Streep, with Lily James as Young Donna) and how she met each one of Sophie’s dads (Pierce Brosnan, Stellan Skarsgård and Colin Firth) and raised her daughter bravely on her own, without a mother’s guidance. Of course, things are turned upside down by a surprise visit by Sophie’s grandmother, Ruby Sheridan (played by Cher).
