Downtown Abbey star Lily James will also be a new face in the upcoming movie, playing a younger Donna in flashback scenes, whilst legendary hitmaker Cher will make an appearance as Donna's mum.

And of course, Julie Walters and Christine Baranski will be adding a sprinkling of humour as their characters Rosie and Tanya are back to cause some mischief with pal Donna (Meryl Streep). 


Where is Mamma Mia filmed?

The fictional Greek Island of Kalokairi was actually filmed in Croatia for the second movie. The isle of Vis, just off the Dalmatian Coast superseded the last location of Skopleos - the Greek Island that was used to film the first Mamma Mia flick.

Most of the action filmed on Vis takes place in Komiza - in particular Barjoska Bay.
