Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall are ready for a fresh Zamunda-to-New York City adventure in the first teaser for Coming 2 America.
Amazon Prime Video debuted the teaser trailer for the sequel of the 1998 comedy Coming to America on Tuesday morning.
Coming 2 America sees Prince Akeem (Murphy), now set to become king, discovering he has a son he never knew about, a street-savvy Queens native named Lavelle (Jermaine Fowler). Honoring his father’s dying wish to groom his son as a newly crowned prince, Akeem must return to America.
The teaser trailer kicks off with the voice of James Earl Jones, who plays Akeem’s father. “You must heed my words before I’m gone, my son,” he says. “Now you will be king. But the throne must pass to a male heir. Akeem, it appears, you have a son. He must be found.”
Cut to Akeem talking with his trusted confidant, Semmi (Arsenio Hall). “Prepare the royal jet. We are going back to America,” Akeem says.
“Oh hell no, your majesty!” protests Sammi.
