Are We About To Get A Third Mamma Mia Movie?

Mamma Mia, Here We Go Again!

The rumour mill is in overdrive with the suggestion that we could be getting a third instalment of the popular Mamma Mia! movie franchise. 

In an interview with The Daily Mail, Producer and Co-Creator Judy Craymer hinted that she "had planned to give some thought to Mamma Mia! The Movie 3" during the current COVID-19 crisis. 

"I think one day there will be another film, because there's meant to be a trilogy, you see."

Mamma Mia! films are dedicated to the music of Swedish pop group ABBA and Craymer has teased she would definitely like to use some of the new music that ABBA have written and are planning to debut later this year. 

The original film Mamma Mia! was released in 2008 and starred Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, Stellan Skarsgεrd, Christine Baranski, Julie Walters, Amanda Seyfried and Dominic Cooper. 

Mamma Mia! was the feel-good movie of 2008 and told the story of a mother, a daughter and three possible dads. Daughter Sophie is about to be married and secretly invites all three possible dads in a quest to find the identity of her father to walk her down the isle.

A sequel Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again was released 10 years later in 2018. 

Amanda Seyfried who plays Sophie, said that she would say yes to returning "in a heartbeat."  However last year the actress did raise some concerns with the possibility of a third movie in an interview with Collider.

"...I wish there was a Mamma Mia 3, but I'll tell you what – I've said it before and I'll say it again and I hope I'm wrong again. I don't think there are enough ABBA songs to make a third movie. Because we'd have to use 'Super Trooper' again and we'd have to use 'Mamma Mia' again and have to use them in a different way."

So what do you think are we about to get a third Mamma Mia movie?
