The Mamma Mia 2 Trailer Is Officially Out (And Fans Are Still Worried)

The official trailer for Mamma Mia 2 is out and fans are still not happy.

Earlier this week, the trailer to Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! was leaked online and fans were not happy with what they were seeing.

What's the main reason people aren’t happy with the film’s first trailer? Fans are guessing that Meryl Streep’s character Donna might have been killed off.

The character doesn’t seem to appear in the trailer besides flashbacks or clips from the original film and fans have realized that the other characters speak of her in past tense.

That, added with the semi-prequel plot has left people scratching their heads or outright losing them.

 

Want to see what all the fuss is about? Check out the trailer down below.

There's Going To Be A "To Wong Foo" Musical

 

Have you ever seen the 1990s film To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar (which is often just shortened to To Wong Foo)?

The film starred Patrick Swayze, Wesley Snipes, and John Leguizamo as drag queens (named Vida, Noxeema, and Chi-Chi) stuck in a middle of nowhere town before they get to know and better the lives of the townspeople.

Now, it seems there is a musical version of the movie that’s coming to reality according to Playbill.

The book for the musical is being written by Tony-nominated playwright Douglas Carter Beane and the Score and Libretto (music) are being created by Composer Lewis Flinn.

The To Wong Foo musical will premiere during a workshop with the American Academy of Dramatic Arts between November 1 - 4.
