    People Are Freaking Out Because Donna Might Be Dead In The "Mamma Mia" Sequel

    "Your mother was the bravest person we ever knew..."

    The first trailer for Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again just dropped and before you do anything else you must watch it:

    Okay, let's proceed. As a huge fan of the original movie starring Meryl Streep and Amanda Seyfried, I've been pretty intrigued to see this trailer. But about 10 seconds in, I started having a full blown freakout.

    Nickelodeon

    Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) is pregnant and she's so glad her mom's friends Rosie and Tanya are there because: "I don't know how to do this by myself..."

    Universal Pictures

    Um, why would you be by yourself, Sophie?? You've got your good 'ole mom, Donna Streep there, don't you?!

    And then Rosie goes: "Your mother was the bravest person we ever knew..."

    Universal Pictures

    EX-FUCKING-CUSE ME??? WAS the bravest person they ever KNEW?! Past tense? Is...Donna...dead...in this sequel?????

    Universal Pictures

    The rest of the trailer shows Rosie and Tanya telling Sophie about Donna's life story, and much of that is told in flashbacks. Of course, Meryl Streep is IN the movie, but there are certainly no "present day" clips of her in the trailer.

    Naturally, people on Twitter have been freaking out about the whole thing...

    If Donna fucking Sheridan is dead in Mamma Mia 2 I’m SUEING

    you’re telling me; I’ve waited 10 years for mamma mia 2 and they killed off donna sheridan; keep ur goddamn movie I… https://t.co/5a6keaFlWC

    I was enjoying the Mamma Mia 2 trailer when I realized Donna aka Meryl Streep is DEAD. What. I’m shattered.

    What a great idea to make a sequel to Mamma Mia where Donna Sheridan is dead, said no one ever. https://t.co/ZWBZ7EaNYQ

    ...and the drama is at an all-time high:

    not to be dramatic but if donna sheridan is dead then so am i

    THEY KILLED DONNA IN MAMMA MIA 2 IM ACTUALLY CRUING FFS IF THEY COULDNT GET MERYL STREEP BACJ THEN THEY SHOULDNT HA… https://t.co/a2T8osJkOc

    if donna is dead in mamma mia 2 then 2018 is cancelled

    Still, some are a little more hopeful she's still actually alive:

    is donna dead??? on an adventure??? is sophie just living by herself????? these are the questions i need answered mamma mia 2

    IMMA NEED MAMMA MIA 2 SPOILERS NOW SO ANYBODY WHO CAN CONFIRM DONNA IS ALIVE AND WELL PLEASE STEP FORWARD

    And despite all of the *commotion* there was one bright spot: Our first look at Cher (yes, that Cher) as Sophie's grandmother.

    raise your hand if you have been personally victimized by Cher's beauty

    Mamma Mia 2 with Cher and without Meryl Streep has me conflicted.

    Can we all just agree that Cher walking in at the end of the Mamma Mia 2 trailer is the most iconic moment of 2017 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼

    Although, it's a little confusing since Donna's mom is supposed to be dead, so some people are a tad curious as to what's going on...

    Anywaaaays, guess we'll just have to wait until it comes out on July 20, 2018 to find out, NBD! Not torture at all!
