The end-of-year trailer rush is continuing, this time bringing us our first look at one of Universal's big Summer hitters: Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again.

Universal Pictures dropped the trailer early this morning, so check it out below:
The first Mamma Mia was a sleeper hit back when it released around a decade ago; it's considered somewhat of a classic now in the musical genre and, in typical Hollywood fashion, if it worked, do it again. And so we have a sequel. But, honestly, if this trailer doesn't at least put a smile on your face from its infectious charm then you probably don't have a heart. It looks romantic, sweeping and everything you would expect a Mamma Mia sequel to look like.

This past Summer, I was lucky enough to visit Skiathos with my family - the island which has become notorious for being the set for the original - and one of the tourist attractions there is an outdoor screening of Mamma Mia, overlooking the beautiful island on which the film was shot. It was the first time I saw the film and it was pretty good. The sequel looks to follow suit, this time taking the story back in time and following Lily James as a younger Donna - the character Meryl Streep graced the first time around - and I'm sure this film will be a huge success come Summer 2018.

Here's the synopsis:
Ten years after Mamma Mia! The Movie grossed more than $600 million around the world, you are invited to return to the magical Greek island of Kalokairi in an all-new original musical based on the songs of ABBA. With the film’s original cast returning and new additions including Lily James (Cinderella, Baby Driver), the musical comedy will open on July 20, 2018.
With Ol Parker at the helm, and starring Amanda Seyfried, Meryl Streep, Lily James, Colin Firth, Pierce Brosnan, Dominic Cooper, and Cher, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again will hit cinemas on July 27th, 2018.
