Mamma Mia! producer Judy Craymer has teased plans for a third Mamma Mia! movie.

First starting as a stage show, Mamma Mia! originally came to the screen in 2008 before 2018 saw sequel Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again.

Now a third film could be on its way.

Craymer shared with the Daily Mail newspaper: “I think one day there will be another film, because there’s meant to be a trilogy, you see.”

She added: “I know Universal would like me to do it.”

Craymer also said she hoped to use four new ABBA songs written by Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus.

Meanwhile the producer would love to get Barbie filmmaker Greta Gerwig on board.

“Hey, Greta, if you’re free to do anymore projects…” she laughed.

Meryl Streep ready to return

Meanwhile, in a recent interview with Vogue, Meryl Streep disclosed her openness to any possibilities should producer Judy Craymer decide to develop a third movie.

“I’ll have to schedule a knee scoping before we film, but if there’s an idea that excites me, I’m totally there. I told Judy if she could figure out a way to reincarnate Donna, I’m into that,” the three-time Oscar winner shared.

For now, you can catch Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again on Netflix UK.

Set five years after the events of the first movie, the film follows Sophie Sheridan (Amanda Seyfried) as she reflects on her mother’s (Meryl Streep) younger life with her possible three fathers Bill Anderson (Stellan Skarsgård), Sam Carmichael (Pierce Brosnan) and Harry Bright (Colin Firth).

Lily James plays Young Donna with Jessica Keenan Wynn and Alexa Davies as her best friends Tanya and Rosie respectively.
