Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is an American film that was released in July 2018.


Five years after the events of the first film, Sophie Sheridan is preparing for the grand reopening of her mother's hotel, after her mother Donna passed away a year prior. She is upset because two of her fathers, Harry and Bill, are unable to make it to the reopening and she is having trouble in her marriage to Sky, who is in New York, over her memorializing her mother's life but forgetting about her own.

Twenty-five years earlier, a young Donna has just graduated and getting ready to travel the world. While in Paris, she meets Harry, who is eventually able to charm her into taking his virginity. She later misses her boat to Kalokairi, but is offered a ride by Bill, and along the way, they are able to help a stranded fisherman make it in time to stop the love of his life from marrying another. Unbeknownst to Donna, Harry has followed her to Greece, but arrived too late, and sadly watches the boat sailing off in the distance.

In the present, Tanya and Rosie arrive to support Sophie with the reopening and it's revealed that Rosie and Bill have split up because of his wandering eye. Sophie then visits her possible father and stepfather Sam, who is still grieving over the death of Donna. Back in the past, Donna arrives on the island and while exploring the farmhouse, a sudden storm causes her to discover a spooked horse in the basement. She goes in search of help only to find a young Sam riding his motorcycle and he helps her to save the horse. Back to the present, a storm has caused serious disruption to Sophie's plans for the grand reopening and prevented any investors or media coverage from making it to the island.

Back in the past, Donna and Sam are enjoying a whirlwind romance that ends when Donna discovers a picture of Sam's fiancé in his drawer. A devastated Donna tells Sam to leave the island, which he does. In the present, Sam tells Sophie this story to make her see that she could never let her mother down. Meanwhile, Harry leaves his business deal in Tokyo to support Sophie, Bill gets the same idea and uses his twin brother as a stand-in to receive the award he was supposed to get. Bill and Harry meet at the docks but are told there are no boats heading to Kalokairi. However, Bill meets the fisherman he and Donna helped years previously, who agrees to give them a ride on his boat. Bill, Harry and a recently arrived Sky head for the island along with several boats filled with party guests.

In the past, a depressed Donna is heartbroken over Sam but is able to channel her anger into song with help from the recently arrived Tanya and Rosie. She meets Bill again and they go out on his boat, while they are gone, Sam returns, having recently ended his engagement for Donna, but is saddened to hear that she is with another man and leaves the island again. Donna discovers she is pregnant but has no idea which one of her three recent lovers is the father. Sophia, the mother of the owner of the bar where Donna and the Dynamos performed overhears Donna's wish to stay on the island and reveals she owns the farmhouse Donna has been staying in. She offers to let Donna live there permanently and Donna happily accepts, and it is there that she eventually gives birth to Sophie.

Back in the present, the guests have arrived at the party and Sophie is reunited with her other two fathers and Sky. Sophie reveals to Sky she is pregnant and has never felt closer to her mother, having now understood what her mother went through. Bill and Rosie reunite over their grief for Donna. Sophie's estranged grandmother, Donna's mother Ruby, arrives despite Sophie deciding not to invite her. She reveals that Sky tracked her down in New York and she wants to build a real relationship with Sophie. Sophie then performs a song with Tanya and Rosie in honor of her mother, with her grandmother tearfully telling her afterwards how proud she is of her. It is then revealed that the manager of the hotel, Fernando, is Ruby's ex-lover, and the two are joyously reunited.

Nine months later, Sophie has given birth to a baby boy and everyone has gathered for his christening where Tanya flirts with Fernando's brother. The ceremony takes place with Donna's spirit watching over her daughter with pride. The film closes with all the characters singing "Super Trouper" at a huge party, joined by Donna's spirit and the younger selves of Donna and the Dynamos and Sophie's three fathers.
