Cher Will Appear in Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again


Cher will return to cinema in the Mamma Mia! sequel, marking the 71-year-old Oscar winner's first appearance in a film since 2010's Burlesque. 

She confirmed her involvement on Twitter, but didn't reveal what role she will play.

A mysterious tweet, which says "Fernando" in all caps, could offer fans insight about what to expect—perhaps Cher will perform Abba's 1980 single off Gracias Por La Música?

Filming for Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again is currently underway in the UK, where Cher is stationed alongside many actors from the original: Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan and Dame Julie Walters.  

The follow-up film's plot hasn't yet been announced, but it's set to feature flashbacks from Lily James as a young version of Donna (played by Streep in the original). There will also be a full, new soundtrack with Abba songs not included in the 2008 movie.  

Cher has previously starred in a number of films, including Mermaids, The Witches of Eastwick and Moonstruck, for which she won a best actress Oscar in 1988. 

Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again will premiere in summer 2018.
