Mamma Mia! is an iconic film with the perfect combination of romance, comedy, and greatest ABBA's hits. And it took the creators of the movie a whole decade to make the next chapter of the story.

However, the first official trailer for the upcoming comedy made some people figure out what could have happened to one of the main characters – Sophie's mother Donna played by Meryl Streep in the original movie.

The trailer gave us a few hints on the plot of the upcoming comedy. Apparently, Sophie is pregnant but wants to keep it secret for some time.

Unsuccessfully, of course, because her daddies played by the magnificent trio of Colin Firth, Pierce Brosnan, and Stellan Skarsgård made sure to spread the news further.

But the main focus of the film is turned to the beginning of Donna's story. And the biggest question that tantalizes all the fans of the show: what happened to Meryl Streep and where is her place in the movie?

You see, while the trailer was full of flashbacks with Meryl Streep's iconic character, there was not a single image of Sophie's mother from the present days. Furthermore, there were a few lines that made people wonder if Donna was even alive. In particular, her best friends Rosie and Tanya say that Donna “was the bravest person we ever knew...”

After that, Internet virtually blew out. People were trying to understand whether they really won't see any of today's Meryl Streep in the new chapter of Mamma Mia! story.

The only thing that calmed the fans of the movie a bit was the appearance of the magnificent Cher. Funnily enough, the 71-year-old Hollywood icon plays the mother of the 68-year-old Meryl Streep's character.

Will we ever see the thrilling duo of Cher and Meryl Streep in Ol Parker's musical comedy? This question remains unanswered for now. And it looks like we will have to wait until the film's premiere in summer 2018 to find out the truth.
