The trailer sets Donna (Meryl Streep)'s pregnancy in 1979, and the birth of Sophie as 1980, which sets Mamma Mia! (2008) around 2000, as Sophie is 20. The movie is set five years after the first film, which would make this 2005. There is however an Apple iPhone present in one of the early scenes, which twists the timeframe and contradicts it from being 2005. See more »
Toward the end of the movie, Sophie refers to Sam as her, "Step Dad," but throughout the story line, refers to all three men as her, "Dads," especially since one of them would be biological. Since Sam married Donna at the end of the first film, he legally, and actually, IS Sophie's Step-Dad, regardless of what their biological relationship is. See more »
It would be amazing if someone could get these to the mainland for the last post.
The pleasure and privilege will be mine.
Señor, you're the manager. I need you to stay here and make sure this place is ready for the most incredible opening party of all time.
Whatever you dream, Sophie, we will make real.

This was her dream. I'm just trying to see it through.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again! has an alternative version. There is the Theatrical Version (the one we all saw) and the Original Version. The Original Version includes the full Knowing Me, Knowing You, The Name Of The Game, an alternative End Credits and the deleted song, I Wonder (Departure). Instead of the Theatrical 1:48:53 time length, the original version has a length of 1:55:21. See more »
Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is a musical sequel that has a stretched story focusing on the young Donna and how she encountered her three men. Even though we did see those scenes in the first movie.
The film starts with Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) refurbishing her Greek island Hotel. Donna has passed away. Sky is in New York learning the hotel business and things do not seem to be going well between them.
For the grand opening of the hotel in honour of her mother, Sophie has invited her three dads and her mother's best friends.
The main part of the story is seeing the young Donna (Lily James) travelling through Europe after graduating at university. Some of the scenes switch with that of Sophie.
It required three writers to come up with the story concept. The story is admittedly thin. The new songs are ok. Cher just looks odd when she makes her belated appearance as Sophie's grandmother. She looks like someone who has just turned up for the pay cheque and decided to do an album of Abba covers out of it.
The Abba songs keep it entertaining but this movie stinks of a cash grab.
