'Mamma Mia 2' Lands On Netflix On Friday
After three months of lockdown, we're very ready to dream of jetting off to a Greek island for a party with Cher.
Anyone else feel a less-than-tuneful singalong coming on, accompanied by a few cocktails?
Fans of the all-singing, all dancing franchise were thrilled when Netflix teased the news in tweet earlier this month, quipping: "We have some news to cher with you: Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again comes to Netflix on 26 June."
For those who haven't seen the follow-up to the 2008 smash-hit musical, or for anyone who needs a reminder, the story picks up five years on from where the first flick left off.
We join Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) as she prepares for the grand reopening party of the old hotel belonging to her mum Donna (Meryl Streep), where the original movie played out.
The hotel has been renovated, marking a new chapter in the family's life.

If you don't want a major spoiler, look away now...
In the five years that have past, Donna - who was famously played by Meryl in Mamma Mia - has died (sob!)
Now, Sophie is spending time reflecting on her mum with one of her three dads - Bill Anderson (Stellan Skarsgård), Sam Carmichael (Pierce Brosnan) and Harry Bright (Colin Firth).
Cue plenty of emotional flashbacks as the narrative jumps back and forth in time.
Happily, the remaining cast also features Dominic Cooper, Jeremy Irvine, Josh Dylan, Hugh Skinner, Jessica Keenan Wynn, Alexa Davies, Christine Baranski, Julie Walters, and Andy García.
Most importantly of all - as we've mentioned several times already - the movie stars Cher.
Actual Cher. The Cher.
Fun, raucous and light-hearted, the sequel is a dose of gloriously camp escapism.
Brb, just off to play ABBA's greatest hits at full blast to set the mood.
