‘Mamma Mia 3’ is an upcoming musical romantic comedy film. It is a sequel to Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018) and the third film in the ‘Mamma Mia’ trilogy.
In 2018, when the second film, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, was released, Amanda Seyfried, Lily James, Pierce Brosnan and Christine Baranski all expressed their interest in returning for another sequel.
On June 19, 2020, Judy Craymer, one of the producers behind both films and the original stage musical, explained (via Daily Mail) that the franchise was “meant to be a trilogy” and that the team at Universal would surely approve.
But, what can we expect from this film? Here’s everything we know about it so far.

‘Mamma Mia 3’ Cast
Mostly, fans can expect of the old characters to make an appearance. We don’t imagine creators will struggle to get the cast back together, so expect to see all your favorites again. We can expect to see:
- Amanda Seyfried as Sophie Sheridan
- Dominic Cooper as Sophie’s husband Sky
- Christine Baranski as Tanya
- Julie Walters as Rosie
Speaking about the success of the second film and the possibility of a third, the actress said: “Well, it’s a better story because they had something to grow on. The first story had to match the stage show so they were kind of stuck.
When asked if she’d return to the world of Mamma Mia, Seyfried said, “Listen, every single person in that movie would say yes in a heartbeat, because we want to hang out with each other. That’s what we talked about last time, like, ‘did we ever think that we’d end up here again on an island in Croatia?’ So yeah, I wish there was a Mamma Mia 3.”
On the other hand Stellan Skarsgård, the actor, who plays Bill in the movies, revealed that he would join a third movie in a heartbeat: “I wouldn’t have to read the script. If they call, I’ll come.”
‘Mamma Mia 3’ Plot
‘Mamma Mia 2’ did end with some unanswered questions, including:
- What happened during Sam and Donna’s married years?
- Why young Harry disappeared after missing one ferry to Kalokairi?
Whether Mamma Mia! 3 gives answers to these questions and explores any of these details or opts for something different.

The third installment in the franchise would come after Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) grapples with the death of Donna (Meryl Streep), the hotel’s future, and her own growing family in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again.
The second movie alternates between the present day and Donna’s past, where she meets Young Bill, Young Sam and Young Harry, with several scenes mirroring each other. By the end of the movie, Sophie feels at peace when she becomes pregnant and can relate to Donna’s motherhood journey.
Mamma Mia 3 Songs
Like the original, the second film is also set to some of ABBA‘s hit pop songs. Judy Craymer, hinted at the possibility of new ABBA songs for Mamma Mia! 3‘s soundtrack.
There are also some songs that are solid-gold ABBA classics that have appeared as touchstones in both movies so far and could reappear:
- ‘Dancing Queen’
- ‘I Have a Dream’
- ‘The Name of the Game’
- ‘Super Trouper’
‘Mamma Mia 3’ Release Date
On June 19, 2020, Judy Craymer revealed that planning for the film would have been underway in 2020, but the pandemic put things on pause.
She explained, “I was meant to have been getting on with that, in my head, during these months. But then I got hit with COVID fog. I think one day there will be another film, because there’s meant to be a trilogy, you see. I know Universal would like me to do it.”
According to the rumour, the earliest possible date we could be expecting it would be July 2022, because the other two films had July release dates. Perhaps the third movie could release in July 2022, if things could start moving along later this year.
However, July 2023, might be more likely since it would allow for more time.
