Cher joins Meryl Streep and Colin Firth for Mamma Mia sequel

It's been reported that music icon, Cher, has joined the cast of Universals' upcoming sequel, Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again!.

The 71-year-old hinted at her new role in a series of tweets over the weekend, though Variety claims to have confirmed the news.

On Sunday, Cher shared a photo of a pair of ABBA-esque silver platform boots, along with the message:  "Just went through two dance numbers. Everyone’s great" – leading many fans to believe she had been cast in the film.

She also tweeted lyrics from the ABBA classic, Fernando, which pretty much sealed the deal.

According to Deadline, no details of the star's role in the film have been released as of yet.

Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, Amanda Seyfried, and Christine Baranski are returning for the sequel which began shooting in September.

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