Bust Out Your Best Denim Overalls Because Today Is "Mamma Mia" Day

Mamma Mia

He called me up and he said: 'You're doing Mamma Mia!' And he hung up ...

When the film Mamma Mia! came out ten years ago, I was sniffy. Here We Go Again is released on 20 July, and has been touted by lead actor Amanda Seyfried as a "better" movie with "more heart". I'd been to see the stage version on sufferance and hated it so much that I left at the interval.

Speaking with TODAY about the movie (via Rolling Stone), Cher revealed that she enjoyed singing the classic disco pop music so much that she chose to put he own touch on more of the material.

In the film, Lily plays young Donna during her infamous time with her three love interests Sam (Jeremy Irvine), Harry (Hugh Skinner), and Bill (Josh Dylan).

Cher has been hailed as "absolutely gorgeous" by fans after wowing on the blue carpet for the Mamma Mia!

In the new movie, Sophie (played by Amanda Seyfried) seeks to honor her now-deceased mother (Meryl Streep) by re-launching the matriarch's hotel. The newcomers all take to the wild rules of this cinematic universe with gusto. Richard Curtis also gets a story by credit, and it makes sense - Donna is right in his wheelhouse, given his proclivity for writing sensual, carefree American babes. Her energy is contagious, her charisma is infectious, and her singing was not half bad! She's playing Sophie's "grandmother", but truly she's just playing herself, and her sheer presence is applause-worthy.

It was revealed in late 2017 that she would join the cast of Mamma Mia!

As well as the usual ABBA classics, Cher firstly performs with Andy Garcia from Fernando in a breathtaking duet. Go ahead and treat yourself to this raucous seaside summer confection, you deserve it.
