The summer holidays are coming and temperatures are finally starting to rise in the Netherlands as well. Fancy a trip to a tropical destination, but no idea where exactly? Perhaps this world-famous Mamma Mia filming location will become your destination.
Mamma Mia, here we go again!
A third Mamma Mia movie coming up?
There are a lot of rumors that there will be a third version of the legendary Mamma Mia movies on the way. The films’ producer Judy Craymer has already confirmed to multiple sources this month that she has ideas for a Mamma Mia 3. She also indicates a comeback from Meryl Streep (who also appeared in The Devil Wears Prada played) as Donna Sheridan.
In the second version of the film, Meryl was the big absentee. This is because she adheres to the strict rule never to make a second version of a film. Yet she broke this rule for just under 5 minutes at the end of the movie. Judy is therefore confident that Meryl, provided the script is rock-solid, would still like to participate in a second sequel.
Despite the plans being made for a Mamma Mia 3So we really need to be patient. Fortunately, there are already two of the films that we can fully immerse ourselves in.
The beautiful film locations that you can simply visit
The Mamma Mia movies were shot in many different beautiful locations. We could only dream of the island life of Sophie and Donna Sheridan. Fortunately, there is also the possibility to just pretend for a few weeks, on the islands where the films were shot.
On the beautiful island of Skiathos, with its cute white-blue houses and its fine sandy beaches, many scenes from the first Mamma Mia movie recorded. Also here is the old harbor where Sophie’s three fathers meet for the first time.
The greenest island of Greece also has a place of honor Mamma Mia. Donna’s hotel is located on this island. Skopelos has many nice villages, vineyards and beautiful beaches with the typical white houses with white roofs.
Not many people know that this second film was not shot in Greece at all. The main location of Mamma Mia 2 is namely Vis in Croatia. Vis is also seen as one of the least known islands in Croatia. The makers of the film chose the location to cut costs. Shooting the film in Greece would be many times more expensive.
