'Mama Mia 2' Trailer: Did They Really Kill Off a Favorite Character?

Mamma Mia! character may be dead

Streep is listed as reprising her role in the film, which will tell Donna's story when she was younger (played by Lily James) and first met the three men who possibly spawned Sophie.

The trailer for Mama Mia 2, the long-awaited sequel to the beloved hit, has some fans upset because they think it implies that the movie kills off Meryl Streep's character, Donna Sheridan.

The film appears to switch back and forth between past and present, showing how young Donna lived her life and fell in love. And someone else tweeted that "Cher is in the new Mamma Mia movie & it's gonna save 2018".

Stormy Weekend Ahead: Snow Likely Christmas Day
Rain is possible mainly along and south of I-44 with a slight chance as far north as HWY 50 Friday evening and overnight. Christmas Day will be sunny with highs in the 40s! The evening will be mostly cloudy, with a low around 22.

For the new film, you can expect ABBA favorites from the original, and there's also word that songs that didn't make it in the first time will make an appearance. James plays the young Donna, whose story is told in flashbacks.

However, one detail from the trailer has Mamma Mia fans anxious about the sequel. The sequel welcomes Lily James to the ensemble, taking on the role of a younger Donna.

The bonus in this trailer is music icon Cher makes her debut joining the cast playing Sophie's grandmother Ruby arriving tot he island by helicopter with platinum-blonde hair.

From the looks of the new clip, which dropped early Thursday, "Mamma Mia!".

Why are they referring to Donna in the past tense? Seyfried's Sophie later says, "I've never felt closer to my mom. She wasn't scared because she had me".

The death of Streep's character was always going to happen, it is believed, and isn't at all related to the criticism she has received for allegedly knowing about disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein's sexual misconduct. However, Daily Variety wrote that the trailer "teases Meryl Streep's Character's Death".
