When the initial images for Coming 2 America, the long-awaited sequel to 1988’s Coming To America were released, fans couldn’t wait to see more of Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall and the entire cast. Sure enough,
Amazon Studios picked Tuesday (December 22) to give us a full teaser trailer for the film – and make us wish we could be outside to enjoy it in a theater and cut up afterwards.
Peep the synopsis for the film below.
In Coming 2 America, Prince Akeem (Eddie Murphy) returns to America as the King of Zamunda with his trusted confidante Semmi (Arsenio Hall) to embark on an all-new hilarious adventure that takes us from the lush and royal country of Zamunda back to the borough of Queens — where it all began! Coming to America original cast favorites including King Jaffe (James Earl Jones), Queen Lisa (Shari Headley) the motley barbershop crew, and some surprise guests will join the new star-studded cast of Coming 2 America including Wesley Snipes, Leslie Jones, Tracy Morgan, Jermaine Fowler, Bella Murphy, Rotimi, KiKi Layne, Nomzamo Mbatha and Teyana Taylor in the most anticipated comedy film of the year.
As we can see, King Jaffe is giving orders from his bedside, prompting Akeem and Semi to once more return to America. And given how the trailer gives us glimpses of all the classic characters from the original film such as the barbershop crew, Randy Watson (!), and more – there’s no telling how insane the sequel will be.
Watch the teaser trailer for the film below. The reunion of Murphy, Hall and company arrives on Amazon Prime Video on March 5, 2021.
