'Mamma Mia' Sequel In The Works

LILY James was seen showing off her enviable figure as she got to work on the set of the eagerly-awaited Mamma Mia! sequel.

The Downton Abbey star plays a young Meryl Streep in Mamma Mia 2: Here We Go Again! and the star looked like she was enjoying her time filming in Croatia.

Lily’s character also couldn’t resist capturing the moment as they filmed a scene

Lily was seen teaming dark blue bikini top with denim shorts while her look was completed with large round sunglasses and a statement necklace.

Her blonde locks were left in natural waves and she strolled along in a pair of flip flops and took selfies and pictures.

She shot a scene with co-star Jeremy Irvine as they sat on a boat and her character, Donna Sheridan-Carmichael, stopped to take a picture of the stunning view.

In the original 2008 film Rosie was played by Julie Walters, while Christien Baranski played Tanya – the three-time divorcee who was also part of Donna and the Dynamos.

The highly anticipated sequel will also see the return of Meryl Streep, 67, Amanda Seyfried, 31, Colin Firth, 56, Stellan Skarsgard, 66, Pierce Brosnan, 64, and Dominic Cooper, 39.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel scribe Ol Parker will be penning and directing the Universal Studios film, while Playtone Pictures, which produced the first instalment, has jumped back on board for the forthcoming film.

The iconic musical focused on a bride-to-be Sophie Sheridan (Seyfried) trying to find her real father so that he can walk her down the aisle at her wedding to Sky (Cooper).

But she’s in for a shock when she realises that there are three potential men that could be her biological dad.

It’s not yet known how bosses plan to push the story on but it’s thought they may decide to follow the angle of how Sophie’s mother Donna Sheridan (Streep) met the three men; Sam Carmichael (Brosnan), Harry Bright (Firth) and Bill Anderson (Stellan Skarsgard) in the years before the original story takes place.

And  ABBA’s Bjorn Ulvaeus is set to have an incognito cameo in the movie.

The music of the legendary Swedish pop group – comprised of the 72-year-old songwriter and his former bandmates Agnetha Faltskog, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad – provides the soundtrack to the sequel, the original movie and the 1999 stage musical upon which both films are based.

To pay tribute to ABBA’s massive contribution, Bjorn appeared as a Greek God at the end of the 2008 movie and he reportedly has a more hidden cameo in the follow-up which only “eagle-eyed fans” will be able to spot.

Mamma Mia World Premiere In London

An insider told The Sun: "Bjorn is very hands-on with the films. He doesn't want anything to overshadow the main stars or detract from the storyline but for a personal thrill, he loves the idea of being briefly on screen again.

"Fans will have to be very eagle-eyed to spot him but given he's one of the world's most famous men, he's going to struggle to go totally unnoticed."
