Eddie Murphy is Back as Prince Akeem ‘Coming 2 America’

The first trailer for “Coming 2 America” debuted ahead of the film’s Amazon Prime release on March 5, 2021, giving fans the most detailed look yet at the sequel to the beloved 1988 comedy.

King Jaffe (James Earl Jones) is on his deathbed and advises his son Prince Akeem (Murphy) that he will soon take over the throne. But as the line of succession is poised to change, new information arises about the prince’s past.

In the original 1988 film, Prince Akeem Joffer is torn between the long-held traditions of his country, the fictional African nation Zamunda, or building a new life in the United States. Thirty-two years later, Akeem must once again travel from Zamunda to America, this time to search for his son.

Back in New York, the duo encounters some new faces: actors Wesley Snipes, Leslie Jones, Tracy Morgan, Jermaine Fowler, Teyanna Taylor, and KiKi Layne.
