Check out the first look at ‘Coming 2 America’!
The sequel to 1988’s ‘Coming To America’ arrives on Amazon’s Prime Video on March 5 2021 and is already one of next year’s most hotly anticipated film offerings.
Anchored by returning duo Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall, this chapter sees Prince Akeem on the cusp of becoming king of Zamunda when he discovers he has a son he never knew about in America — a street-savvy Queens native named Lavelle. To honor the former king’s dying wish to groom his grandson as the crown prince, Akeem and Semmi head back to America.
Joining the cast for the revival are the likes of Tracy Morgan, Jay Pharaoh, Jermaine Fowler, and Wesley Snipes.

As reported, the sequel was initially set for a theatrical release this month. But uncertainty over cinema-going due to the on-going global health crisis saw its studio Paramount sell the movie to Amazon – who promise an all-out red carpet arrival on its streaming service.
And understandably so. The original ‘Coming To America’ proved to be a cultural phenomenon and has grossed a colossal $300 Million to date.
We’re all sorts of buzzed for the next chapter. Are you?
