Cher Plays A Fierce Party-Crashing Grandmom In Leaked “Mamma Mia 2” Trailer

R.I.P. Donna and the Dynamos?

It’s been almost ten years since the first Mamma Mia movie changed our lives forever, and now finally we are about to enter the world of Donna and the Dynamos once more with the sequel, Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again!

The film is scheduled to be released next summer, and fans have been thirsty for any footage since the original cast is scheduled to return and Cher was reported to have filmed a cameo for the movie.

Now a leaked trailer has been making the rounds online, first posted on Twitter and YouTube before being taken down. Mamma Mia fans will stop at nothing to see any scenes from the upcoming musical masterpiece so the preview has—for now—been uploaded to Vimeo.

You would think fans would be happy with the leaked trailer, but even from the opening seconds of the preview something is wrong because it appears that Meryl Streep’s Donna is… dead?

Meryl is in the trailer, but only in scenes from the original movie, and fans on Twitter are not having it with the news that Donna has gone to the giant dischotheque in the sky.

The preview mostly focuses on scenes featuring a young Donna played by Lily James (who you might recognize from Downton Abbey and Cinderella). Don’t lose all hope though because at the end of the trailer Donna’s mother, Ruby, arrives and she’s played by the one and only Cher.

Forget Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War, Mamma Mia 2 is officially the most anticipated movie of 2018.

Hopefully the trailer is just tricking us Mamma Mia fans and Donna is actually alive and well. Please?

Guess we won’t find out until the movie hits theaters on July 20, 2018. Even though there is no Meryl in the trailer the movie looks like it will be filled with more musical numbers and Cher looks gorgeous so we will still be lining up opening day.
