Here We Go Again will also see the original cast as well as new additions singing and dancing to ABBA's hit numbers. The new film will follow how Donna (played by Meryl Streep) came to the Greek island of Kalokairi and set up her own hotel. The film will also explore her romantic interests and tell the audience how she met Sophie's fathers Sam, Bill and Harry (played by Pierce Brosnan, Stellan Skarsgård and Collin Firth).

Not just that, the yesteryear pop star Cher is essaying the role of Sophie's grandmother and Lily James will be seen as a young Donna. Christine Baranski and Jullie Waters reprise their roles as Donna's girlfriends Tanya and Rosie. Their young counterparts will be played by Alexa Davies and Jessica Keenan Wynn while Jeremy Irvine will play young Sam, Josh Dylan will star as young Bill and Hugh Skinner as young Harry.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again will release in Indian cinemas on 3 August.
