Mamma Mia! employs the hit songs of famed pop group ABBA to tell the story of Sophie Sheridan (Amanda Seyfried), a young girl who hopes to discover the identity of her father. On the eve of her wedding to Sky (Dominic Cooper), she brings three men; Sam Carmichael (Pierce Brosnan), Bill Austin (Stellan Skarsgård) and Harry Bright (Colin Firth), from her mother Donna's (Meryl Streep) past back to the Greek island they visited over two decades ago.

Mamma Mia! was filmed at several locations including London, Venice, Morocco, Damouchari a seaside hamlet in the Pelion area of Greece, Skopelos island and Skiathos island. Filming on Skiathos island began August 29th to 30th in the harbour, and in the bell tower for the wedding 30th to the 3rd September. Filming on Skopelos island began on September 3rd and wrapped at the end of September. Locations in Skopelos included Agios Iannis tou Kastri, Kastani Beach and Agnondas.

Production offices for the film were based at Pinewood Studios and although set on a Greek island much was filmed on the 007 stage at Pinewood Studios where lighting and temperature could be controlled.
