Of course, its great cast played an important role in the way this story became an important reference in pop culture for new generations, where Streep dancing and singing to the rhythm of ABBA became an icon. Although for a good part of the public, this success was sudden and unexpected, the truth is that the mere fact of having the soundtrack of one of the most emblematic bands of all time was already a very good omen.
And it is that if something can be said about who will go down in history as one of the best interpreters of all time, it is that she has not been afraid of any character, particularly in the most mature stage of her career. Whether with Miranda Priestly from The Devil Wears Prada – 75%, his recent participation in Only Murders in The Building – 87% like the intriguing Loretta Durkin, and of course that of her Donna Sheridan in Mamma Mia!, since the actress has not tired of showing us that there is no other like her while embodying different spectrums of the human condition.
In honor of the film’s 15th anniversary, Vogue held a behind-the-scenes chat with the cast and crew. The discussion delved into the notable triumph of Mamma Mia! on Broadway, the intricate process of turning it into a cinematic masterpiece, its casting process, and a host of interesting anecdotes. And the most notable information about this was that the multi-Oscar winner is more than willing to return to her character, even though she is dead:

I’m willing to do anything. I’ll have to schedule a knee exam before filming, but if there’s an idea I’m excited about, I’m all for it. …if I could find a way to reincarnate Donna, that interests me. Or it could be like one of those soap operas where Donna comes back and reveals that it was actually her twin sister who died.
And it is that the death of Donna’s character sparked a great controversy among the many followers of the film, because in the eyes of many it was somewhat unnecessary and forced. But the truth is that, after the new statements from the creator and producer of the musical, Judy Craymerthis decision had a compelling reason.
For the same medium, she confessed how she was “scolded” on social media for killing Meryl, claiming not to have done it on purpose. In reality, it was all “fault” of Streep herself, as Craymer hesitated to make another movie because she normally doesn’t make sequels: “But I know she loved reshooting her scenes for Mamma Mia! Let’s Go Again- 76%. She felt the love around her and the joy of meeting with those people.” She also assured that this made the actress of The Bridges of Madison more open to the possible arrival of a third installment.
It is a fact that once the actress’s feelings are made known, there will be many people around the world who will clamor for her return to the cast through a new and possible final chapter of this story that captivated different generations. We are sure that, if this is the case, Universal will have a new guaranteed success on its hands.
