Abba star reveals group's two new songs

Amanda Seyfried 'Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again' review: Sequel is a seaside confection

The writer and director of Mamma Mia!

James has proven a winsome presence in "Cinderella", "Baby Driver" and "Darkest Hour", but "Here We Go Again" is a breakout superstar moment for her as the free-spirited, earthy and open-hearted Donna.

According to The Richest, Cher's net worth is approximately $305 million.

"That doesn't make any difference", said Cher in an interview with People.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again hits theaters July 20, but a few lucky viewers have already gotten a sneak peek of the musical's sequel.

LONDON (Reuters) - Amid olive trees and plenty of ABBA tunes, the musical world of "Mamma Mia" took over a London theater on Monday for the film sequel's world premiere with Oscar victor Meryl Streep and pop diva Cher among the attendees.

We can't wait to hear what other songs she'll be covering!

The two have a long history together; both have been in the film business for decades now, even co-starring in the 1983 thriller Silkwood alongside actor Kurt Russell, which Cher starred in early in her movie career.

"We were kind of protective of the first one because we were very proud of it, it was very good and it became kind of a cult movie ... and we thought what's the point of risking ... taking away from that legacy, so we were reluctant", Ulvaeus told Reuters.

Cher has been hailed as "absolutely gorgeous" by fans after wowing on the blue carpet for the Mamma Mia! Indeed, much of the present day movie plot struggles to carry it's own without Meryl - until Cher arrives, that is.

But safe to say, when she does pop up towards the end to sing My Love, My Life as a duet with Seyfried's Sophie, there won't be a dry eye in the house.

Set ten years after the original, the film follows Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) as she tries to run her mother Donna's (Meryl Streep) villa in Greece whilst pregnant, as she finds out more about her past. Here We Go Again trailer below.

Lily James plays the younger version of her character, and gushed: "When I found out I would be part of the sequel, I was terrified and very excited".
