Mamma Mia 2 will feature more ABBA songs that weren't included in the 2008 movie alongside with "reprised favourites". The sequel is scheduled to be released in July 2018, ten years after the original. Pierce previously opened up about his experience working on the film, telling Cinema.com: "I had the time of my life doing it. Really, I cannot wax lyrically enough about my experience with Meryl Streep, Colin Firth and Julie Walters. And Phyllida Lloyd, the director, of course. And Judy Craymer and the world of Mamma Mia! Julie and Phyllida and Catherine Johnson, the writer, did create something that is enduring and meaningful and above all; entertaining."
