OMG it is here!!
In case you forgot, there is a Coming 2 America movie which is the sequel to Coming to America from the 80’s.
Eddie Murphy will be coming back as the beloved Akeem and it is set to make its debut on Amazon Prime Video in March.
Good for us, it isn’t that far away and we at least have a new trailer to hold us over until the new movie releases!
In the new film, Akeem takes over as the King of Zamunda, and he is tasked with going back to the States to find the son he never knew he had.
The nation of Zamunda has a rule that only a male heir can take over the throne, so Akeem needs to bring his son back in order to prepare him as a ruler. Of course, his more-than-qualified daughter doesn’t approve.
“Set in the lush and royal country of Zamunda, newly-crowned King Akeem (Eddie Murphy) and his trusted confidante Semmi(Arsenio Hall) embark on an all-new hilarious adventure that has them traversing the globe from their great African nation to the borough of Queens, New York – where it all began.”
In addition to Murphy and Hall, Coming 2 America also stars Jermaine Fowler, Leslie Jones, Tracy Morgan, KiKi Layne, Shari Headley, Wesley Snipes, and James Earl Jones.
The rest of the cast includes John Amos, Teyana Taylor, Vanessa Bell Calloway, Paul Bates, Nomzamo Mbatha, and Bella Murphy.
I am so excited and cannot wait to watch this! Coming 2 America will make its debut on Amazon Prime Video on March 5th!
