Mamma Mia Filmed in Greece?

I just hear that the new movie version of the Broadway hit Mamma Mia, starring Meryl Streep, was filmed on "small Greek islands". Can't find anything more specific so maybe someone with more knowledge than I have can help us all figure out more specific locations.

I am heading to Greece for the first time in Sept and am also interested in any other movies filmed in Greece that might "get us in the mood"!

"Shirley Valentine" is an oldie that was filmed on Mykonos, I believe. Pretty scenery.

Have fun in Greece!

I've read filming took place mainly on Skopelos, specifically Kastani Beach

Skiathos for the old port scenes

Agios Ioannis Chapel, Corfu

Damouchari, Pelion on mainland Greece

I believe Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants was filmed partially in Santorini.
It was a cute movie

Captain Corelli's mandolin was filmed in Kefalonia, James Bond's For Your Eyes Only was in Meteora and Corfu.

Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants is having a sequel which is coming out sometime this summer I believe.

Normally, I'd wouldn't go see "Mamma Mia", but the cast is so amazing (Meryl Streep CAN sing), Pierce Brosnon is yummy and is brave trying to sing , Colin Firth - etc., it just looks FUN! And of course, I'll be able to soak in all that Greek scenery as Cindy says to "get in the mood" for upcoming trip in September.
