What is certain to be a huge Summer blockbuster of a movie is almost out of the starting gate. Benny Andersson has been at work with the team in Los Angeles putting the finishing touches to the sound mix of Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again that will be heard in cinemas all around the globe soon.
Benny told icethesite about the movie mix sessions: “It is such a joy to work together with people who are so skilled at what they are doing. Every single one of them. Totally concentrated on their separate working stations but always with a sharp eye on the whole. An amazing experience again, just like it was on the first film 10 years ago.”
Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is both sequel and prequel to the original Mamma Mia! movie and stars Lily James (Young Donna), Amanda Seyfried (Sophie), Dominic Cooper (Sky), Andy Garcia (Señor Cienfuegos), Meryl Streep (Donna), Pierce Brosnan (Sam), Colin Firth (Harry), Christine Baranski (Tanya), Stellan Skarsgård (Bill), Julie Walters (Rosie), Cher (Ruby Sheridan), Jeremy Irvine (Young Sam), Celia Imrie, (Vice Chancellor), Hugh Skinner (Young Harry) and Josh Dylan (Young Bill). The director is Ol Parker.
Those close to the production have revealed that ABBA songs featured in the new movie include One Of Us, When I Kissed The Teacher, Angeleyes, Waterloo, Fernando, I’ve Been Waiting For You, Why Did It Have To Be Me?, Kisses Of Fire, and My Love, My Life among others.
