‘Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again’ Goes Digital in October
Mamma Mia 2 has a digital release date
“Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again,” the hit romantic comedy based on the songs of ABBA, will release on Digital HD and the digital movie app Movies Anywhere on October 9, 2018. The sequel will then release on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand on October 23, 2018 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
Ten years after “Mamma Mia! The Movie” released in theaters, the second-installment now invites fans to return to the magical Greek island of Kalokairi to continue the story’s emotional journey of family and friendship whilst discovering just how those life-changing relationships were formed and includes hit songs such as When I Kissed The Teacher, Fernando and Dancing Queen.
The original cast members multi-award winner Meryl Streep (Florence Foster Jenkins, Into The Woods), Pierce Brosnan (The World is Not Enough), Oscar® winner Colin Firth (The King’s Speech), Stellan Skarsgård (Good Will Hunting), Julie Walters (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows), Dominic Cooper (Avengers: Infinity Wars), Amanda Seyfried (Les Miserables) and Christine Baranski (The Good Wife) return alongside new additions Lily James (Cinderella, Baby Driver), Oscar winner Cher (Moonstruck, Burlesque) and Andy Garcia (Ocean’s Eleven, The Godfather: Part III).
The film did very well in theaters, opening with a $34M weekend before grossing over $118M domestically. The film then went on to make over $367M worldwide. Both a prequel and a sequel, the film tells two stories: present day as Sophie Sheridan (Seyfried) prepares for the grand reopening of her mother Donna’s (Streep) hotel and 1979 when young Donna (James) first arrives on the island. Sophie learns about her mother’s exciting, fun-filled adventures with the young Dynamos, Tanya (Jessica Keenan-Wynn) and Rosie (Alexa Davies), and how young Donna first met her three possible dads Harry (Hugh Skinner), Bill (Josh Dylan) and Sam (Jeremy Irvine) all those years ago.
The film was produced by Judy Craymer and Gary Goetzman, the same producers of the original film. Craymer is also the creator and producer of the worldwide smash hit stage musical. Ol Parker, writer of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, writes and directs the sequel from a story by Catherine Johnson, Richard Curtis and Ol Parker. Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus return to provide music and lyrics and serve as executive producers.
