We’re fresh out the cinema from watching the brand new Mamma Mia movie, Mamma Mia, Here We Go Again! and can’t help but feeling jolly whilst spontaneously bursting into Dancing Queen. We had an Unforgettable Croatia Team outing to watch the film because, although the film is set on a fictional island in Greece, it was in fact filmed on the Croatian island of Vis. ABBA for the sake of research – tough job, right?
We recognised lots of familiar sights on the remote island. It was funny to see all the A-listers hanging out in little Komiza Town on their arrival. Here’s Colin Firth with the quaint backdrop.
The film also features Lily James, who plays a young Meryl Streep. The plot runs in two stories; one shows how Meryl Streep’s character, Donna, came to be on the island. Along the way she meets three young men played by Hugh Skinner, Jeremy Irvine and Josh Dylan.
Donna’s daughter, Sophie, is played by Amanda Seyfried. In the second story Sophie tries to finish the transformation of a farmhouse to a hotel that was started by her mother.
