Mia! Here We Go Again - Final
ABBA member Benny Andersson produced and arranged
the soundtrack. The song "When I Kissed the Teacher" remains
a favorite for critics in a catalog of smashes by one of the
best-selling artists of all time, the Rock and Roll® Hall of
Fame and GRAMMY® Hall of Fame inductees ABBA. The Telegraph
lists the song as one of ABBA's hidden gems, offering it as
an alternative to "Waterloo." The Los Angeles Times said
"'When I Kissed the Teacher' is the most convincing thing ABBA
has done because it injects some sly, mocking humor and passion
that offsets the group seriousness."
MAMMA MIA! HERE WE GO AGAIN will see Meryl Streep,
Amanda Seyfried, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth and Julie Walters
reprising their roles from MAMMA MIA! The Movie. Christine
Baranski, Stellan Skarsgård, Dominic Cooper, Jeremy Irvine,
Hugh Skinner, Josh Dylan, Jessica Keenan Wynn and Alexa Davies
complete the cast.
MAMMA MIA! The Movie, released in 2008, also based on
the songs of ABBA, is one of the highest-grossing live-action
musicals of all time. Its companion soundtrack sold 1.5 million
copies in the UK and achieved global sales of over 7.7 million.
Almost a decade since its release, its popularity has not waned.
There have been 406 million combined streams of MAMMA MIA!
The Movie Soundtrack. ABBA are one of the most successful
pop groups of all time. The Swedish quartet have sold over 385
million albums worldwide, and their songs have been streamed
over 2.8 billion times. The release of MAMMA MIA! The Movie
prompted a surge in sales for ABBA, whose hit compilation ABBA
Gold went back to Number One in the albums charts some 16 years
after its original release.
