There’s a new dancing queen in town.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lily James will play a younger version of Meryl Streep’s Donna in Mamma Mia 2.

James has previously starred in Baby Driver, Downton Abbey, and Cinderella. Speaking of which, James made her singing debut during the credits of Disney’s 2015 fairy tale, lending her voice to A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes. Let’s just say she sounds better than Pierce Brosnan.
Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! hits theaters on July 20, 2018.
