Ten years ago, it was highly likely that the soundtrack of your summer included tracks like
Dancing Queen, Lay All Your Love on Me and The Winner Takes It All.
A renewed fervour for ABBA's classic disco hits swept the globe upon the release of
Mamma Mia back in 2008, and over the course of the last decade we've waited with bated breath for a sequel.
And thankfully, ladies, the wait is now over.
With each of the principal players from the original reprising their roles in
Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, the sequel is set to be stand-out summer smash, and we're already excited.
If you simply can't wait until its release on July 20, why not take a sneak peek here?
Calling all dancing queens!
Earlier this year, Universal Studios confirmed the news we'd all been waiting for – a
Mamma Mia! sequel was in the works.
Next year marks the 10th anniversary of the original film's release and what better way to celebrate the milestone than by doing it all over again?
Meryl Streep, Amanda Seyfried, Pierce Brosnan and Colin Firth will all reprise their roles while Cher comes on board as a welcome addition to the star-studded cast.
Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is set to be released in Irish cinemas on July 20,2018 and you can watch the newly-trailer now:
Will feel an ABBA binge coming on…
The Story of Tracy Beaker was definitely a favourite growing up.
Who else had piles of Jacqueline Wilson books in their bedroom as an adolescent?
Well, the writer has confirmed to
The Mail on Sunday that she's writing a sequel to the Tracy Beaker books.
In 2000, the Dame wrote a sequel to
The Story of Tracy Beaker called The Dare Game followed by Starring Tracy Beaker in 2006 and Tracy Beaker's Thumping Heart in 2009.
The 71-year-old said that the new book will concentrate on Tracy's life as an adult, as she has now become a mum with a high-flying career.
However, unlike the other books, this story will be told through Tracy's daughter's eyes, as she and her mum get into "all sorts of funny situations."
Who else wants to know what Tracy has gotten up to as an adult? We certainly do.
ABBA was constantly played in my household growing up, and now ten years after the first
Mamma Mia! film hit the big screen, it's looking like a sequel is in the works.
Yes, a whole decade has passed since Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Amanda Seyfried and Colin Firth donned their 70's glad rags, and we couldn't be more delighted with talks of a second movie.
Universal will be releasing the follow up, which is going to be called
Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again!
It has been reported that Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaues are currently writing new material for it, with all of the cast keen to take on their previous roles.
Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again! is expected to land in cinemas in the summer of 2018, and we can't wait for another sing-song.
*Plays ABBA on repeat*
Love Actually was a romance movie for the ages.
We adored every couple and related to their plights, so we were totally delighted to hear that it's getting a sequel.
Red Nose Day Actually will be a special short-film in aid of Comic Relief and all of our favourite original cast members have signed up to take part.
Huge Grant, Rowan Atkinson, Matrine McCutcheon, Keira Knightly, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth and even
The Walking Dead's Andrew Lincoln will all reprise their roles, which makes it waaay more exciting.
The sequel will be written by Richard Curtis, who was the original writer and director and his partner Emma Freud tweeted that filming will start tomorrow.
We. Can't. Wait.
When rumours start about TV show reunions and comebacks, it's easy to be let down and most of the time, it's a long-stretch that everyone from the original will actually return.
But after Lindsay Lohan revealed that she'd be up for a
Mean Girls sequel, another actress has come out and said that she's totally on for it too.
Rachel McAdams spoke to
E! News yesterday to promote her new movie Doctor Strange, but of course the topic soon changed to Tina Fey and the burn book movie.
When asked if she's interested, Rachel replied, "Sure, I mean, I loved that movie. I love Tina Fey. I love the girls.
"I mean, to get to kind of have a reunion would be… we got to have a reunion at a photo shoot a couple of years ago and it was over like that and it wasn't enough. I was back in it."
And when asked if Regina George would be a mother today, Rach said, "Regina's probably had a few!"
Now all we need it Amanda Seyfried and Lacey Chabert!
Most of us could probably recite a line or two from
Mean Girls, heck, most of us use those lines on a daily basis – which is why we would totally love a sequel – and if Lindsay Lohan has anything to say about it, it just might happen.
The actress shared a throwback snap on Instagram last night with her
Mean Girls co-stars Rachel McAdams and Lacey Chabert.
Linds' caption read: "#tbt @rayannemcadams @thereallacey #meangirls @markwatersfilm miss you all… sequel?"
Now, we know this isn't an announcement or confirmation, but if all the cast were on for it, how amazing would it be?
We can all forget about
Mean Girls 2 (Yep, it was crap), and go back to Cady and Regina as adults maybe? Mean MUMS?! It's so exciting.
We think it's safe to say we'd ALL be heading to the cinema to watch this.
White Chicks was possibly one of our favourite movies of the 00's. It was something you could just sit back and laugh at (which was perfect for hangover days).
And now, one of the film's White Chicks, Marlon Wayan wants to bring the movie back.
He took to social media a couple of months ago to show off a doctored picture of White Chicks 2 and said if it surpasses 300,000 likes he'll talk to the studio about making a sequel. It has now received over 1.5 million likes and Marlon is making it his "mission" for a comeback.
"The response has been overwhelming and amazing," Marlon said on Instagram.
“This movie is something that my fans really want, this is a movie that definitely should be made. I’m on a mission to make this happen. I know with all that’s happened in the pop culture and the socialite circles since the original ‘White Chicks’ we can surely knock a sequel way out the park.”
We're totally hoping he can actually make this happen now!
Will Smith has been smashing it lately, announcing he
might be doing a world tour album, on top of starring in the highly anticipated (which we can't wait for). Suicide Squad
But today, Will shared even bigger news that's going to make a lot of people happy.
In an interview with
Radio 1Xtra, Will admitted a Bad Boys sequel is in the works.
He said, "I saw Martin a few weeks ago and I hadn’t seen him for about two years and we just looked at each other.
"We hugged and in that moment, we both knew we were making another
Bad Boys. We’re definitely doing another one."
The first instalment of
Bad Boys debuted in 1995, and then 13 years ago Bad Boys II hit our screens.
But we say the next one is going to be
sooo much better.
Fifty Shades is finally on its way back to us (yay!), but this time, filmmakers are doing something new when it comes to the production of the movie.
It has been reported to
Variety that Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed will be filmed back-to-back, starting in 2016.
The film also has a brand new director, James Foley, who will take over from Sam Taylor-Johnson who left the franchise in March .
And despite anything you've heard, Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan WILL be back. Hurrah!
Here's the teaser trailer for
Fifty Shades Darker, although it's nothing more than Christian Grey putting on a mask (but we'll still watch it because, you know… it's Christian Grey):
Jamie Dornan fans, diaries at the ready!
Universal pictures have announced the release dates for Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed.
Fifty Shades Darker will be in cinemas February 10, 2017, and Fifty Shades Freed will be out February 9, 2018.
It was announced yesterday that EL James' husband, Niall Leonard, will write the script for the sequel.
The first movie made $248.7 million worldwide, so there is no doubt that the sequels are very highly anticipated.
So it looks like Mr Grey won't see us now, but sure we only have to wait two years. Better start booking our tickets.
Oh Christian, we do miss you.
Is there anyone in the whole entire world who didn’t like Disney’s
No, we didn’t think so.
You’ll be absolutely delira with the news about the mini-sequel so! The new movie will be about Elsa and Kristoff planning a birthday party for Anna, and when they find that Elsa's icy gift might cause problems, they have to figure out what to do (we would suggest a gift voucher).
As if this wasn’t enough, there might also be a new song by the same people who wrote Let It Go – amazing!
There’s no launch date just yet, so we just have to sit tight. Hurry up Disney!
