Join the celebration, sing, and dance, and discover how it all began! Ten years after Mamma Mia! The Movie premiered, you’re invited back to the magical Greek island of Kalokairi in an all-new musical sequel based on the songs of ABBA.
Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) is now pregnant, and like her mother Donna (Meryl Streep), she’ll need to take risks. The film’s original cast returns, with new additions including Lily James as a young Donna, Andy Garcia and Oscar winner Cher.
Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is the sequel to 2008’s hugely popular romantic musical Mamma Mia!, featuring more earworm-worthy ABBA songs. This time, Sophie (Amanda Seyfried), who is mourning the unexpected death of her mother, Donna (Meryl Streep), reopens a Greek hotel in her mom’s honor.
The movie also flashes back to a young Donna (Lily James) meeting the three men who become Sophie’s potential fathers. Like the original, the sequel is frothy fun, with some innuendo and sexual activity (fans already know Donna had three sexual encounters in the same month).
But it’s mostly limited to kissing, dancing, and flirting. Characters drink in pubs, restaurants, and at parties, sometimes acting drunk.
Language is infrequent but includes “son of a bitch,” “crap,” and “Jesus Christ” (as an exclamation).
The movie values strong friendships, open communication, and following your dreams; themes also include empathy and gratitude.
Wonderful movie, wonderful songs. Appropriate for kids
Outside of a handful of implied sexual encounters where it just goes from them flirting in public, to showing them covered up in bed afterward, its a very kid/family friendly movie.
My 6-year-old loved every minute of it, and so did I. Empowering for girls as well, showing they can have fun adventures and living by the edge of their seats in love and life every bit as men are allowed to.

I loved the first one and obviously loved the second one, there were people singing along with crying their hearts out, it has a beautiful storyline, but I will say there are those types of scenes like in the beginning were at Donna’s graduation and she sings about hooking up with a teacher (As a JOKE and a way to say goodbye to college), and they show Donna and Harry in bed together(JUST SLEEPING after doing stuff but they don’t show it) and they show the same thing with Bill and Sam but that’s it and it’s really nothing to worry about.
