When Seyfried was asked about Mamma Mia 3 by the interviewer, she stressed, ‘I have absolutely no power. I have no power.’

When asked if she would, ‘jump at the chance’ to return as Sophie for the sequel, Seyfried said everyone is, ‘waiting for the call.’

‘There are enough ABBA songs, (Mamma Mia creator) Judy Craymer, she is 100% on board. I don’t know what the Universal people are doing,’ Seyfried said.

This comes just weeks after Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again director Ol Parker revealed in an interview with Screen Rant that Craymer has plans for a third movie.

‘Judy Craymer, the genius producer behind the musical and the first two films, always plans for it to be a trilogy. That’s all I can say,’ Parker said.

The original Mamma Mia hit theaters in 2008, and became a box office sensation, particularly overseas.

‘It was just honestly, I just wanted to give a bonafide explanation as to why I missed it. I didn’t want that generic, “Can’t be here tonight,”‘ Seyfried explained.

She added, ‘The creators are working diligently to bring something beyond comprehension to life onto the stage. It’s still early days. It was just a very important week, and I still have all the music in my head, I can’t stop singing.’

She added that it will, ‘be awhile’ before the project is ready, but insisted there wasn’t more pressure because of how iconic the 1991 movie is, starring Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon.

‘No, it just makes you more excited because it’s been a long time and Callie Khouri, who wrote it, is writing this. So we’ve got all the right people involve. I’m not scared at all,’ Seyfried said.
