It begins with a pregnant Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) reaching out to her mom's friends Tanya (Christine Baranski) and Rosie (Julie Walters) for parenthood advice. Played by Amanda Seyfried in the original, Sophie discovers that her mother, played by Streep, isn't sure who her father is.
According to the official synopsis, the story will go back and forth in time, with James playing the younger version of Streep's character, while Irvine, Josh Dylan and Hugh Skinner play the junior editions of Brosnan, Skarsgard and Firth.
The film follows the life of Donna played by Meryl Streep. Here We Go Again is set to hit theaters July 20, 2018. If you're not familiar with the original - beloved for its script, acting and soundtrack - it features a young woman about to be married. James plays the young Donna, whose story is told in flashbacks.
Lily James, who fleetingly used her handsome singing voice in Baby Driver, joins the cast as young Donna. "Looks like they rebooted John Hammond from Jurassic Park with @cher for Mamma Mia 2", they wrote. And you heard correctly-she's Sophie's grandmother!
