There was a decade-long break between the two Mamma Mia! films. One of the stars, the legendary Stellan Skarsgård, recently weighed in on a potential threequel.

The cast of Mamma Mia! spoke to Vogue for a lengthy profile interview prior to the SAG-AFTRA strike. Everyone seemed down to make a third film, though Skarsgård joked that he “will be in an urn by the time there's a script for Mamma Mia! 3.” However, he added that he “will gladly participate as a pile of ashes.”
