Due to Mamma Mia!’s financial success, Hollywood studio chief David Linde, co-chairman of Universal Pictures told The Daily Mail that it would take a while, but there could be a sequel.

On September 27, 2017, Benny Andersson confirmed 3 ABBA songs that would be featured in the film: “When I Kissed the Teacher,” “I Wonder (Departure),” and “Angel Eyes.”
