As the release of the musical sequel on DVD and Blu-ray is confirmed for November 26, one of the featurettes has been teased early.
In it, fans can see the making of Super Trouper; the big ensemble show-stopper that comes right at the end of the film.
This featurette sees the male stars joking about their embarrassment, with Stellan Skarsgard – who plays the older Bill – saying: “I can’t sing, I can’t dance and I don’t know why they hired me for this.
“It’s probably just to humiliate me!”
Colin Firth added: “It’s quite liberating, really.
“There’s nothing more liberating than abandoning your dignity.”
Pierce Brosnan, famously maligned for his vocals in the 2008 original, quipped: “You’ve got to be a brave man to sing in Mamma Mia, wear the spandex… dear heavens.”
“It’s so ridiculously out-there,” Josh Dylan (Young Bill) said, “that you can’t help but throw yourself in at 100%.”
Jeremy Irvine, playing the younger equivalent of Brosnan, said: “I think it’s kind of a competition between the young dads and the old dads to see who’s worse at dancing.”
Mamma Mia 2 has been an indisputable success since its release in July.
It has spent seven consecutive weeks in the Top 2 at the UK box office, and has grossed over £61 million – now within touching distance of the £68 million made by the first film.
What’s more, the soundtrack album continues to prove popular: it is now back at number one on the UK chart.
Today it is confirmed that the film will be out on digital download on November 12, with 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand following on November 26.
Bonus features include deleted and extended scenes – including a lengthened The Name of the Game and Knowing Me, Knowing You.
On the soundtrack, the latter features the vocals of Pierce Brosnan and Amanda Seyfried, so presumably we’ll get to see that in action.
There’s also a deleted scene performance of I Wonder, exclusive to 4K Ultra HD, Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital Download.
