Amanda Seyfried and Dominic Cooper reunite as Sophie and Sky, while Pierce Brosnan, Stellan Skarsgård and Oscar winner Colin Firth return to play Sophie’s three possible dads: Sam, Bill and Harry.

As the film goes back and forth in time to show how relationships forged in the past resonate in the present, James will play the role of Young Donna. Filling the roles of Young Rosie and Young Tanya are Alexa Davies and Jessica Keenan Wynn.

Young Sam will be played by Jeremy Irvine, while Young Bill is Josh Dylan, and Young Harry is Hugh Skinner.

“I’m so thrilled to have our brilliant original cast back and to welcome the new cast to the Mamma Mia! family,” says producer, Judy Craymer. “It was so much fun casting these young roles, and there is great excitement among the whole cast as we explore the characters past and present and continue this heartwarming story where it left off…told once again through much-loved Abba songs.”
