You haven’t seen the last of Cher on the big screen.
It’s been seven long years since Cher starred as Tess in the musical masterpiece, Burlesque—and just when we thought she couldn’t top that delicious campy performance, it was revealed today that Cher is going to be in the Mamma Mia sequel.
Take a minute and let that sink in.
Cher will appear in two song and dance numbers in the follow up to the 2008 movie, titled Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! The sequel reunites the original film’s cast, including Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, Christine Baranski, Amanda Seyfried and Dominic Cooper.
No word on who will be sharing the stage with the legendary singer.
“Cher’s our secret weapon. It’ll spoil the fun if we give anything away,” an executive on the film told The Daily Mail.
The movie has been shooting in Croatia (the original was filmed on the Greek island of Skopelos), but Cher’s numbers will be filmed at Shepperton Studios “later this week” in London.
Over the weekend Cher tweeted about rehearsing dance numbers and posted a picture of some high-heeled boots covered in stars that look very similar to the ones Donna and the Dynamos wear in the first film.

Cher’s cameo in Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! will be a reunion for her and Streep who co-starred together in the 1983 movie, Silkwood, with each of them earning Oscar nominations for their performances.
Even though the “Believe” singer has not been in a movie in seven years, she has kept busy. Since stumping for Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail last year she voiced a character on the animated series, Home: Adventures with Tip & Oh, was recently featured in a Gap ad and a musical about her life is slated for Broadway next year.
Will Cher’s appearance in Mamma Mia 2 just be a disco fever dream? What ABBA songs will she sing? Will we finally get a Meryl and Cher duet? All of these answers and more will be revealed when Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! hits theaters next year.
