‘Mamma Mia’ co-creator Judy Craymer says a third movie, ‘Mamma Mia 3’, may be produced in the near future with 4 new ABBA songs.
Judy Craymer, who produced the combined $1 billion-plus-grossing feature films ‘Mamma Mia!’ and ‘Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again!’, as well as the original West End $4 billion-grossing ABBA musical, revealed recently, “I think one day there will be another film, because there’s meant to be a trilogy, you see.”
“I know Universal would like me to do it,” she added, specifying that there’s four new ABBA numbers Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus wrote for the virtual concert they’ve planned with Agnetha Faltskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad.
Craymer said that she intended to develop the musical during the COVID-19 lockdown.
“I was meant to have been getting on with that, in my head, during these months. But then I got hit with Covid fog,” says the producer.
In regard to potentially turning the feature sequel Here We Go Again into a stage musical, Craymer says, “it’s a thought.”
Craymer also mentioned in her interview that when Mamma Mia! the musical can safely reopen, she’ll be inviting “the National Health Service and frontline workers to see the show when we get the West End back.”
