Thirty years after the original, we now get to catch up with Akeem and Semmi in the long-awaited comedy sequel, Coming 2 America. The film, which is set to arrive on Amazon Prime in March 2021 reunites us with the characters from the first film.
The new trailer sees Prince Akeem (Eddie Murphy) about to ascend to the royal throne before he is informed by his gravely ill father (James Earl Jones) that he has a long-lost son in America. Together with his trusted confidante Semmi (Arsenio Hall), they make their return to Queens, New York, where their adventure first began three decades ago.
The first look trailer not only brings us up to speed with the developments in Zamunda but also the return of iconic characters from the first film. This also includes Murphy and Hall pulling triple duty as other characters in the film. Jermaine Fowler portrays Lavelle, Akeem’s long-lost son.
Coming 2 America will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on 5 March 2021.
