And if Sophie needed pregnancy advice, wouldn't she just ask her own mother? The sequel to the original Mamma Mia! film, which grossed a massive $609.8 million back in 2008, will evidently take place partly in Donna and Sophie's present, and partly in Donna's past. "Here We Go Again" appears to hint Meryl Streep's Donna character could be killed off. So we get to see the young Donna (Lily James) and the possible fathers for the first time.

Abba - the very name brings a smile on the faces of music lovers of the earlier generation who grew up on songs like I have a dream, Mama Mia, Dancing Queen, SOS, Voulez-Vous... songs that became the soul of the seventies. And it looks like the younger version of Streep's character is played by Lily James. She first teased that she was joining Mamma Mia 2back in October, where else, on Twitter, posting lyrics from ABBA's track "Fernando".

Already finding herself in a predicament, Sophie's world is turned upside down after learning her grandma (Cher) makes an unexpected visit to their Greek island of Kalokairi.

Apple admits to slowing older iPhones over battery issues
Like most people, you might be considering the option of replacing the phone entirely without attempting to have it checked out. And because it's so gradual, progressively shorter battery life is ignored by most people, until it's time for a new iPhone.

That's the set up for the flashbacks, and it has fans wondering why Rosie refers to Donna Sheridan in the past tense. So, when Sophie exclaims in the trailer, "I've never felt closer to my mom". "I appreciate that Cher has always been 16 years old and 100 years old at once", they wrote, "and time to her is a flat circle". And it's clear just how much we missed her from the tweets that came pouring in after her trailer cameo.

Streep also features in a behind-the-scenes photo posted by the producer.

The death of Streep's character was always going to happen, it is believed, and isn't at all related to the criticism she has received for allegedly knowing about disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein's sexual misconduct.
