DUBAI: Amazon Studios has unveiled the first trailer for “Coming 2 America,” which sees the return of Eddie Murphy as the charming Prince Akeem from the 1988 cult classic “Coming to America.”
In the upcoming sequel, Prince Akeem, from the fictional country of Zamunda, finds out he has a son— a street-savvy Queens native. Akeem and his younger brother, Semmi, once again leave for America in search for the unknowing royal.
Murphy’s co-stars James Earl Jones and Arsenio Hall will reprise their roles as King Jaffe Joffer and Semmi, respectively. They will be joined by an all-star cast, including Jermaine Fowler, Leslie Jones, Tracy Morgan, KiKi Layne, Shari Headley, Wesley Snipes and Bella Murphy, among others.
Originally set for theatrical release by Paramount Pictures, the film’s distribution rights were sold to Amazon Studios in October due to the pandemic.
