LILY JAMES, who is now starring as Pamela Anderson in Disney+’s Pam and Tommy, says she would reprise her role as young Donna in Mamma Mia 3 provided one condition were satisfied.
In Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, Lily James had a lot of fun playing a younger version of Meryl Streep’s Donna Sheridan. Over the last few years, there have been whispers about a third picture, but is it necessary? Judy Craymer, who produced the first two ABBA musical films, believes it should be a trilogy and has previously stated that Universal Pictures wants her to direct it.
Not to mention that ABBA just released a new album, Voyager, a few months ago, with their ABBAtars musical extravaganza slated to begin in 2022, their 50th anniversary year.
Some of the new music might be used in a future film, however Björn Ulvaeus has already expressed reservations about a trilogy. Nonetheless, he stated he’d be willing to take a look if the concept was sound. Lily, the star of Pam and Tommy, is up for Mamma Mia 3 in any case. However, there is a major snag.
“I realise this is kind of above your power, but what do we need to do to make Mamma Mia 3 happen?” Lily was asked in a recent interview with Timesread.com.
“I’m desperate for it to happen,” the 32-year-old said. It was as if it weren’t real. Just singing on the beach and on a boat was so much pleasure. I’m not sure. Why isn’t it taking place? It is something that we all require. It’s been a COVID situation. It’s been a nightmare. “Let’s do Mamma Mia!” says the group.
When the interviewer stated that the fans “need it,” Lily responded, “Please! But only if I’m a part of it. They are unlikely to accept me. It’ll most likely be Sophie’s child. Anyway! Let’s not bring it up again.”
Here is her exact quote: I sincerely hope they will. I couldn’t believe it when I realised how much pleasure it was to sing on the beach and on a boat. I’m not sure. Why aren’t they doing something about it? We require it; there was Covid, and it was a disaster. Let’s do Mamma Mia! together! […] I implore you! But only if I’m also present. They’re unlikely to have room for me; perhaps it’ll be modelled on Sophie’s son (Amanda Seyfried). But, in any case, don’t bring it up again!
Fans of the super blockbuster musical Mamma Mia will be pleased to learn that a third film is presently in the works. Lily James, who appeared in the second film, Mamma Mia Here We Go Again, in 2018, seemed to be the most enthusiastic to see the idea come to reality.
The infectiously cheesy films are based on the music of the iconic Swedish musical band Abba, and the first two instalments have been enormously successful, achieving cult status. Any preparations for a third film are still in the early stages, with COVID proving to be a substantial roadblock in terms of development and schedule.
Lily James played Donna Sheridan, the younger version of Meryl Streep’s character, in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again. With scenes of flashbacks of James having her best life in Greece, the film focuses on Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) who is trying to figure out who her true father is.
Lily James isn’t the only one who wants a Mamma Mia sequel; Christine Baranski and Stellan Skarsgrd have all expressed interest in the project. However, keep in mind that the original two Mamma Mia films were released 10 years apart, so Mamma Mia 3 might be a long wait.
Until then, if you’re a fan of Lily James, you may watch her in the live-action Disney film Cinderella, which is available on Disney Plus. Mamma Mia! is currently available on Netflix.
