Mamma Mia! Here we go again!
Judy Craymer, the creator and producer of the beloved musical comedies, has revealed there could be a third instalment.
In an interview with Deadline, discussing the Mamma Mia! I have a Dream talent show on ITV, Craymer shared a confident Mamma Mia! 3 update.
“It’s in its earliest stages… I don’t want to over-egg it, but I know there’s a trilogy there. There is a story there, and I do think Meryl should come back — and if the script is right, she would, I think, because she really loved playing Donna,” she said.
Craymer’s comments come after a long line of remarks made about a possible third movie, with her saying in 2020 that it was always “meant to be a trilogy.”
Even though the producer said it’s in the early stages of development, it’s unclear when there will be an official announcement from Universal.
Familiar faces Stellan Skarsgård, Christine Baranski, Lily James, Dominic Cooper, Colin Firth, and Pierce Brosnan have all expressed interest in returning to reprise their respective roles.
Craymer also revealed in her interview that she has come up with a way to bring back all the franchise’s favourite characters, including the iconic Meryl Streep.
Bringing back every member of the franchise’s massive ensemble cast might be why the third instalment has made little progress in recent years, but Craymer remains confident that the next instalment will go ahead.
