A journey from Zamunda to America – Again

It has been well over 30 years since the original 1988 classic “Coming to America” first hit the big screen. In the anticipated sequel,  we’ll see some of the same actors reprise their role, especially stars  Eddie Murphy as Akeem, Arsenio Hall as Semmi and James Earl Jones as King Jaffe.  

Fans of the original will be happy to see familiar faces for the 80’s movie, as well as see some newcomers for the sequel, including: Wesley Snipes, Tracy Morgan, Leslie Jones, and Teyana Taylor. 

At the wish of his dying father, King Jaffe, Prince Akeem of Zamunda who will soon take over the thrown needs a male heir. However new information arises about the prince’s past that he already has a son back in the United States, so as the trailer teases:

“Prepare the royal jet. We are going back to America.” 

“Oh hell no, your majesty!”.
