Gimme! Gimme! Gimme — more Mamma Mia!

The first full-length trailer for Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! dropped Thursday morning, giving fans a look at the highly-anticipated sequel.

In the trailer, a pregnant Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) calls on the help of her mother’s friends and former bandmates Tanya and Rosie.

“Your mother was the bravest person we ever knew,” says Rosie. “Let me tell you how she did it, all on her own.”

From there, the trailer begins to tell the story of a young Donna.

Lily James stars as the matriarch last portrayed on the big screen by Meryl Streep in 2008’s adaptation of the Broadway musical – albeit, in her younger years.

Streep and the other original stars – including Pierce Brosnan and Colin Firth – also return for the movie, which will switch between the past and present.

In addition to some ABBA classics used in the original musical, other tunes from the Swedish band will be included in the new movie.

Based on the hit Broadway musical and featuring songs of ABBA, the first Mamma Mia! starred Seyfried as Sophie, a bride-to-be who secretly invites three men (played by Colin Firth, Pierce Brosnan, and Stellan Skarsgård) to her wedding in the hopes of learning which of them is her real father.

Here We Go Again, written and directed by Ol Parker (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), also features a reunion between Streep and her Silkwood costar, Cher.

Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! hits theaters in July.
