Akeem and Semmi are back and they are heading back to Queens for Coming 2 America.
It has been 32 years since Coming to America, and after years of talks of a sequel, the stars finally aligned for it to happen. Originally the sequel was set to hit theaters, but thanks to the pandemic, Amazon ended up purchasing the rights. Now the film is headed to Amazon Prime and we finally have a trailer to go along with it.
Returning original castmembers include Eddie Murphy as Akeem, Arsenio Hall as Semmi, James Earl Jones as King Jaffe Joffer, Shari Headley as Queen Lisa, John Amos as Cleo McDowell, and Louie Anderson as Maurice. New cast members include Wesley Snipes, Leslie Jones, Tracy Morgan, Jermaine Fowler, Bella Murphy, Rotimi, KiKi Layne, Nomzamo Mbatha, and Teyana Taylor.
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.
Coming 2 America will hit Amazon Prime Video on March 5, 2021.
