However, don’t go thinking the film’s unlikely critical acclaim means that there’s any chance of a follow-up in the near future.
“I feel there is enough ABBA music [for a third film] for sure,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “But I’m gonna say the same thing I said 10 years ago: I don’t f***ing think so.”
Although she went on to say the idea of a third film would be “ridiculous”, Amanda added: “But now anything can happen!”
Her biggest concern, she noted, was that if a third ‘Mamma Mia!’ film were to be announced, that the studio “would only make it to make money”, noting: “With ‘Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again’, I know that’s not the case.”
‘Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again’ picks up five years after the first film, featuring some lesser-known ABBA hits left out of the original, as well as a few repeats, such as ‘Dancing Queen’ and the title track.
All of the original cast returned for the sequel, as well as newcomers like Lily James and Cher, who steals the show in the latter half of the film with her rendition of ‘Fernando’.
‘Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again’ is in cinemas now. Read our HuffPost Verdict here.
