A decade after Mamma Mia! The Movie, we’re heading back to the Greek island of Kalokairi for another joyful and infectious musical based on the songs of ABBA. Ten years on from the events of the first movie, Sophie (Seyfried) is pregnant and wants to learn more about her mother’s past. The film begins to flit between past and present as Sophie learns the trials Donna (Streep) went through before she was born, and how those experiences could solve her own worries. Lily James (Baby Driver, Darkest Hour) joins the fun under the sun to play Donna’s younger self, while Jeremy Irvine, Hugh Skinner and Josh Dylan feature as young Sam, Harry and Bill respectively.
Overworked and disillusioned with adult life, Christopher Robin (McGregor) is a world away from his idyllic childhood spent with a simple-minded, honey-loving stuffed bear and his friends. But a chance encounter with Winnie the Pooh (Cummings), now tattered after years of hugs and play, reminds him of the days of wonder and make-believe that defined his youth. After a mishap with Christopher Robin’s briefcase, Pooh and the rest of the gang, including Piglet, Eeyore and Tigger, step out of the Hundred Acre Wood and into London to return a few crucial possessions to their old friend – and help him enjoy life again.

At the centre of the tale is Sophie (Ruby Barnhill), a characterful and curious young girl living in a London orphanage. One night, Sophie is let into an amazing secret: giants exist, and they deliver dreams into children’s bedrooms.
Sophie discovers this when she is whisked off to a land of giants, where the BFG (Rylance) teaches her about dreams and protects her from his rather less friendly brothers, including the Bloodbottler (Bill Hader) and the Fleshlumpeater (Jemaine Clement).
