Fans loved Mamma Mia 2 – and now they’re off to buy dungarees and move to a Greek island

The ABBA-inspired sequel is "a work of art" and "the best movie of all time", according to some

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (Universal, EH)

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again was released at the weekend, and it’s gone down a storm, drawing moviegoers to cinemas in their droves despite the ongoing heatwave.


The response from critics has been surprisingly positive, given the sniffy reaction to its predecessor – Mark Kermode’s tear-soaked, 5-star review is a sight to behold – and the fans are feeling the love, too.

Many took to Twitter to share their ABBA-inspired joy, calling the sequel “a work of art” and “the best movie of all time” as they prepared to pack their bags, buy some dungarees and head off to start new lives on a Greek island…

“Mamma Mia 2 is FAB and now I’m going to grow my hair long and get a perm and only wear dungarees because I want to be Lily James,” @TheAnnaEdit wrote.

Former Doctor Who brand manager Edward Russell had an even stronger take: “I’m going to be one of those people you read about in the Mirror, who have gone bankrupt to pay for all the times I’ve gone to see Mamma Mia 2. ‘SOS – Here He Goes Again – former BBC staffer broke after seeing ABBA flick 1,370 times’.”

Check out some of the best reactions to the film below.

Meanwhile, a subsection of Twitter is already planning for further sequels.

“I’m already excited for the act 3 reveal of Mamma Mia: Tokyo Drift, in which Stevie Nicks turns out to be Amanda Seyfried’s aunt and also sings, for some reason, Fernando,” Emily Gould tweeted.

@LauraBonang chimed in with some more ABBA-inspired titles for further movies in the series, such as Mamma Mia: Knowing 3, Nowing You and 4Nando.


At the moment another Mamma Mia! sequel is just a twinkle in the eye of a Universal exec, but at least we’ve got two new ABBA tracks to look forward to in December
