Ol Parker, the director of Mamma Mia! 3, provides an exciting update on the film and suggests that Judy Craymer is working on a concept for the third chapter. Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, the sequel to the wildly successful original, was written and directed by Parker. Although there have long been expectations for a third volume, there has yet to be any formal progress.
Parker delivers a positive update on Mamma Mia! in an exclusive interview with Screen Rant promoting his upcoming film, Ticket To Paradise. According to Craymer, Mamma Mia! was always planned to be a trilogy, and both the cast and the audience expressed a desire for the third volume.
Ol Parker: Judy Craymer, the genius producer behind the musical and the first two films, always plans for it to be a trilogy. That’s all I can say. The first one made an enormous amount of money, and I think we made a fair amount too. I know that there is a hunger for a third, and I know that she has a plan. Wouldn’t it be lovely?
What Might Take Place In Mamma Mia 3?
Mamma Mia! and Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again combined for a global total of more than $611 million and $402 million, respectively. Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again did a remarkable job of juggling a dual narrative as a prequel and sequel to the first Mamma Mia! movie, detailing the background of Donna’s three well-known whirlwind romances with Bill Anderson, Sam Carmichael, and Harry Bright while also focusing on Sophie’s life five years after the events of the first movie. Several cast members, including Christine Baranski, Dominic Cooper, Stellan Skarsgard, Lily James, and Colin Firth, have shown interest in coming back for a third Mamma Mia! movie.
Sophie is shown in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again coping with her mother’s passing and ultimately giving birth to her son. Meryl Streep appears to Sophie at her son’s christening in a quick cameo as Donna, although she probably won’t have a big part in the third film. Instead of focusing on the mother-daughter connection, Mamma Mia 3 may veer off the beaten route and examine Sophie’s relationship with her son. The five years that passed between the previous two films, Donna’s connection with her mother, Sophie’s relationship with her grandma, and Sky’s (Cooper) past might all be explored further.
Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again allows for further study of the past and present by switching between periods. Members of both casts might return by using this route once more. Skarsgard is hoping that his Dune co-star Dave Bautista will join the Mama Mia! cast, since it may be a fun addition. With Donna taking a back seat and Sophie maybe assuming the role of the family matriarch, Mamma Mia! 3 offers the chance to delve further into the other adored characters of the film.
