With just a couple of months to go until Mamma Mia 2 hits cinemas, our final look at the eagerly-anticipated musicial sequel is here.

The long-awaited follow-up to 2008's ABBA-inspired musical is set to reuinte the original cast an introduce some brand new faces as it explores the '70s back story of Meryl Streep's character Donna - though the legendary actress continues to be mysteriously absent in this latest trailer, despite being given star billing and appearing on the newly-unveiled theatrical poster.

The original Mamma Mia! became a huge commercial success when it was released a decade ago, amassing box office takings of over $600 million (£460m) from a $52 million (£39.9m) budget.

However, not all of its stars were initially sold on the idea of a sequel, with Amanda Seyfried revealing last year that she'd been hesistant to sign up for round two.

"Truthfully, when they were like, 'We're making Mamma Mia 2,' I was like, 'That's going to be terrible,'" the Mean Girls actress told Entertainment Weekly.

"But it's not! It's amazing."

Let's be honest, with the addition of Cher to the cast this time around, how could it not be?

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again hits UK cinemas on July 20. Check out the final trailer below:
