Hollywood star Eddie Murphy will repeat his popular role as Akeem from the 1988 comedy hit Coming To America in a sequel. The sequel, titled Coming 2 America, is preparing for a world premiere on March 5th.
Eddie Murphy said, “In Coming To America, an African prince goes to America to find a normal girl and he brings her back to make her his princess. It’s a modern fairy tale that many people love, and it was also the first time they had a movie with black people that featured kings and queens. The upcoming movie is a really cool sequel to that story and I want people to have a great experience watching it. “
In the sequel to the fictional land of Zamunda, the newly crowned King Akeem and his confidante Semmi embark on a brand new, fun adventure as they cross the globe from their great African nation to the borough of Queens in New York.
The original cast includes Eddie Murphy, King Jaffe Joffer (James Earl Jones), Queen Lisa (Shari Headley), Cleo McDowell (John Amos), Maurice (Louie Anderson) and the colorful hair salon crew.
This ensemble includes Wesley Snipes, Leslie Jones, Tracy Morgan, Jermaine Fowler, Bella Murphy, Rotimi, KiKi Layne, Nomzamo Mbatha and Teyana Taylor.
The Amazon Original Movie, directed by Eddie Murphy, is expected to be released worldwide on March 5th.
