Amazon Studios has released a new set of photos from Eddie Murphy’s highly anticipated sequel Coming 2 America. The new photos give us our first look at the many of the characters from the original movie. I am waiting for this movie for a while, and so happy to see some of the original cast back in action, it is one of my all time favourite movies.
The movie is set in the lush and royal country of Zamunda, and the story “continues to follow newly-crowned King Akeem and his trusted confidante Semmi as they 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.”
The new movie features the return of 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, as well as the motley barbershop crew. New cast members include Wesley Snipes, Leslie Jones, Tracy Morgan, Jermaine Fowler, Bella Murphy, Rotimi, KiKi Layne, Nomzamo Mbatha, and Teyana Taylor.
Coming 2 America will be released exclusively on Prime Video on March 5, 2021.
