Here are this week's hottest home video releases. Find them on disc, or streaming services such as iTunes, Vudu, Amazon and Google Play.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

Part follow-up, part prequel and all Abba, this toe-tapping follow-up rounds up most of the original cast and infuses Lily James, Cher and Andy Garcia into the mix. The plot follows a younger version of Streep's character, Donna (Allen), as she ventures off to Greece to find romance and direction. The story parallels with the current time-set plotline, in which Donna's daughter (Amanda Seyfried) adjusts to adulthood. The follow-up matches the sequel in terms of energy and ebullient song-and-dance numbers. Extras include deleted songs, extended performance numbers, sing-along tracks and scene and character breakdowns.

Snake Outta Compton

A low-budget, intentionally ludicrous monster flick in the "Sharknado" mold, "Snake Outta Compton" sets a poorly-crafted, giant, mutated CGI snake in inner-city LA. An up-and-coming rap group is mankind's only hope for survival. The movie is crammed with scattershot laughs and countless head-shaking moments, but hits the right notes for those with low expectations. Filmmaker commentary is included.

The Twilight Saga on 4K

The five films in the emo and teen angst-heavy 2008-2012 adaptations of Stephenie Meyer's vampire-human-werewolf romance saga have been released several times on home video over the years, but this is their first go-round on Ultra HD. Sold separately, the films take on their theatrical majesty in shimmering HD, but the cutting-edge format also exposes some of the dated CGI effects. Extras include scene breakdowns, audio commentaries and deleted scenes.

Studios provided review screeners.
