Finally it’s here! The movie we all (well maybe not all of us…) have been waiting for.
A sequel has never been an easy task. Many has failed during the years and some has succeeded.
A big bunch of us from the museum teamed up to go and see it on the exclusive VIP premiere last week in Stockholm and it was an happy evening. The day started with me going to the Grand Hotel where the film company Universal Pictures had arranged a press conference. The museum have a nice Les Paul guitar with many awesome autographs on it, for example Axl Rose, Al Pacino, Jennifer Aniston and now we hoped for Björn, Benny, Pierce Brosnan, Stellan Skarsgård and more from the cast. And yes, we got the guitar signed and later on we will have a charity auction on our website with this guitar. Stay tuned!
Björn and Benny, as always very courageous when they meet the world media. Answering questions in a good mood like if it was the first time.
I just got off the phone with ABBAs spokesperson Görel Hanser who told me about the opening in London, the same brave guys met hundreds of journalists and TV-media and a bit later they took off to Hammersmith Apollo for the opening together with 3000 guests. A happy evening for all involved, from Cher to Meryl Streep and rest of the cast.
A third viewing of the movie was done in Björns hometown Västervik yesterday. The location was the beautiful ruin where Europe’s second oldest music festival is held every year in June. It was a perfect evening! Warm and lovely with the sea close by and the sunset. A recommendation from me.. visit the festival next year. Its magic!
I know that Björn and Benny wasn’t quite so positive to a sequel of the first MAMMA MIA! The Movie, they might have changed their minds now, people loved it and I guess that everyone who enjoyed the first one will also see this.
Hope you also will enjoy the film, but most of all of course, the songs!
All the best,
