Quantrell D. Colbert/Amazon StudiosAmazon has dropped the first trailer for its much-anticipated Coming to America sequel, Coming 2 America.
Eddie Murphy is back as Zamundan Prince Akeem Joffer, who must return to the U.S. to find his long-lost son, who is an heir to the Zamundan throne. This time, however, Arsenio Hall, as his trusty sidekick Semi, isn’t as eager to head to the States: “Oh hell no!” he screams.
The snippet shows that James Earl Jones’ King Jaffe Joffer is apparently on his deathbed, prompting the search for the would-be heir.
The clip also shows some of the movie’s star power, including Wesley Snipes, Leslie Jones and Tracy Morgan — as well as Eddie and Arsenio reprising their various roles in the barbershop from the first film.
Coming 2 America debuts on Amazon Prime on March 5, 2021.
