A lot of people were pleasantly surprised to see the one and only Meryl Streep show up, since there's been a lot of speculation about her character leading up to the sequel.

In the 2008 film, Streep played Donna, Sophie's (Amanda Seyfried) single mom who was in a love triangle with Sam (Pierce Brosnan), Bill (Stellan SkarsgΓ₯rd), and Harry (Colin Firth). Since this sequel is all about flashbacks to Donna's young adulthood, and Streep hasn't really appeared in any trailers for the movie, some fans think that Donna is dead in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again.

The premiere crowd erupted in cheers when Streep was introduced as a person "who needs no introduction."
