A Third 'Mamma Mia' Movie May Be In The Works

Listen up Mamma Mia! fans—there's a possibility that a third movie might be happening, according to the producer behind the original stage production. Speaking with the Daily Mail, Judy Craymer confirmed that a third Mamma Mia! movie will likely happen one day.
"I was meant to have been getting on with that, in my head, during these months. But then I got hit with COVID fog," Craymer told the outlet of her waylaid plans for another Mamma Mia! movie. "I think one day there will be another film, because there's meant to be a trilogy, you see."
Craymer isn't the only one interested in another installment in the musical franchise, either. "I know Universal would like me to do it" she told the Daily Mail. She even shared that she plans to include the four new ABBA songs band members Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus wrote for the group's virtual concert.
Despite these promising signs that fans will be heading back to Donna and Sophie's picturesque resort on a Greek Island, Mamma Mia! star Amanda Seyfried is doubtful this project will come to fruition. “Listen, every single person in that movie would say yes in a heartbeat, because we want to hang out with each other,” she told Collider. “That’s what we talked about last time, like, did we ever think that we’d end up here again on an island in Croatia?"
“So yeah, I wish there was a Mamma Mia! 3. But I’ll tell you what—I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again and I hope I’m wrong again,” she continued. “I don’t think there are enough ABBA songs to make a third movie. Because we’d have to use ‘Super Trooper’ again and we’d have to use ‘Mamma Mia’ again and have to use them in a different way.”
