English Actress, Lily James who recently appeared in the Hulu miniseries “Pam and Tommy” revealed that she is desperate for the third Mamma Mia movie to happen.
Recently, while having an interview with Screen Rant the 32-year-old actress was asked what is the condition to make Mamma Mia 3 happen.
Lily was asked: “I know this is kind of above your control, but what do we need to do to make Mamma Mia 3 happen?”
To which she replied: “I’m desperate for it to happen. It was like, it didn’t feel real. It was so fun just singing on the beach and on a boat. I don’t know. Why isn’t it happening? We all need it. It’s been COVID. It’s been terrible. Let’s do Mamma Mia.”
Rumors of a Mamma Mia 3 movie have been spreading since 2020.
The producer behind the original stage production, Judy Craymer, told Daily Mail she was “meant to have been getting on with that, in my head, during these months” amid the early days of the pandemic. “I think one day there will be another film because there’s meant to be a trilogy, you see,” she added.
The romantic comedy film, Mamma Mia was originally released in 2008, directed by Phyllida Lloyd, starring Amanda Seyfried as Sophie, Meryl Streep as Dora Sheridan.
In the film, Lily James plays the role of young Dora Sheridan.
Back in 2020, James revealed that she experienced some discomfort over the role itself.
“Trying to say in a sentence, ‘I’m playing the young version of Meryl Streep?’ That bit, I sort of winced at,” Lily admitted.
Despite this, the actress also expressed her absolute pleasure over being on set for the sequel Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, saying: “It was one of the happiest times in my life, living on an island and singing and dancing with the most wonderful group of people.”
