Universal has confirmed that Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! is on schedule to drop in July, 2018.

Mamma Mia! The Movie was released in 2008 and sang its way to becoming the highest-grossing movie musical of all time, raking in more than $600 million worldwide at the box office. The original cast including the NOT overrated Meryl Streep, as well as Amanda Seyfried, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth and Stellan Skarsgård are all expected to star in the return, reports Deadline..

No official word on a story line for the sequel but upcoming film will reportedly include hits from ABBA and Euro-pop OGs Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus are reportedly going to provide music and lyrics, as well as serve as executive producers.
