Legendary singer joins the cast of Mamma Mia 2

The Goddess of Pop will star alongside Meryl Streep, Pierse Brosnan and Colin Firth


Cher has joined the cast of the Mamma Mia! sequel.

US film industry website Deadline have confirmed Cher’s casting, but no details about her role have been revealed.

Over the weekend, the award-winning singer teased that she had signed up for Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! by posting a picture of platform boots on Twitter.

She also tweeted, “Just went through two dance numbers. Everyone’s great.”

Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! will reunite Meryl Streep, Julie Walters, Christine Baranski, Amanda Seyfried, Dominic Cooper, Pierce Brosnan, Stellan Skarsgard and Colin Firth.

The movie will also feature younger versions of the characters portrayed by the veterans, played by Lily James, Alexa Davies, Jessica Keenan Wynn, Jeremy Irvine, Josh Dylan and Hugh Skinner.

The Mamma Mia! role will mark Cher’s first movie appearance since 2010’s Burlesque, in which she co-starred with Christina Aguilera.

Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! is set for release next July.
