The First 'Mamma Mia!' Movie Has Been Re-added To Netflix Along With The Sequel
Nothing could be more of a mid-pandemic mood-booster than the addition of our very favourite musical onto Netflix.
Yep, Mamma Mia! is back on the streaming platform from Wednesday July 1st, just two weeks after the sequel Mama Mia: Here We Go Again! was added for our viewing pleasure.
They do spoil us...
The 2008 film - starring Meryl Streep, Dominic Cooper, Piers Brosnan, Amanda Seyfried, Julie Walters and Colin Firth, among others - is set to ABBA's iconic music, and tells the story of Sophie Sheridan (Seyfried), who invites all three of her potential fathers to her wedding, in a bid to find out who her real dad is.
The chaotic flick then follows the bride as she seeks to get to the truth, and her mum Donna (Streep) as she comes face to face with the three ghosts from her past once more.
Mamma Mia! has actually been on Netflix before, but it was removed from the website back in August 2019, and hasn't been available to watch on the platform for UK customers ever since.
And when they realised, people were raging, to say the least.
"@netflix why would u remove mama mia TELL ME THAT," one superfan fumed at the time.
As another penned: "@NETFLIX WHY DID U REMOVE MAMA MIA I NEED THE SEROTONIN FROM THE BEACH SCENE!!!!!".
So, it's safe to say, the show's return to the platform is going to go down a treat.
The film's arrival on the platform comes as Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! landed on 26th June - which means you can now officially have a Mamma Mia! marathon and watch both in one go, from the comfort of your sofa.
And it might well be perfect timing to catch up, as the show's creator, Judy Craymer, said she's planning to work on a third instalment. Yaaaas.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, she said: "I was meant to have been getting on with that, in my head, during these months. But then I got hit with Covid fog.
"I think one day there will be another film, because there's meant to be a trilogy, you see."
Here's hoping she gets cracking soon. Mamma Mia! is bringing us all the posi' vibes right now.
