ABBA fans will be counting the days until the release of Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, which is set to hit screens on July 20.

The movie, a sequel to 2008's Mamma Mia! - itself based on the Abba musical, continues the stories of the characters from the original five years later.

Oxfordshire's Wytham was the scene of film crews who descended on the tiny village to shoot the opening scenes last year

Scroll through our picture gallery above to see the film crew and also when they were spotted filming scenes in central Oxford and near The Trout pub in Wolvercote.

Wytham, which has a population of just 131, is no stranger to the limelight.

The cameras first rolled in for Colin Dexter’s Inspector Morse: The Way through the Woods in 1992.

Wytham Manor went on to provide the setting for several films most notably JoJo Moyes’ Me Before You, filmed in 2015.

The film, written and directed by Ol Parker, stars Meryl Streep, Lily James, Amanda Seyfried, Christine Baranski, Julie Walters, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, Stellan Skarsgård, Dominic Cooper and Cher.

Ol Parker previously described the opening sequence, as akin to the first scene of La La Land, but with 80 newly-graduated Oxford students on their bikes in full academic dress.

The first Mamma Mia! movie grossed more than $600m around the globe.
