In COMING 2 AMERICA Prince Akeem (Eddie Murphy) returns to America as the King of Zamunda with his trusted confidante Semmi (Arsenio Hall) to embark on an all-new hilarious adventure that takes us from the lush and royal country of Zamunda back to the borough of Queens — where it all began! COMING TO AMERICA original cast favorites including King Jaffe (James Earl Jones), Queen Lisa (Shari Headley), the motley barbershop crew, and some surprise guests will join the new star-studded cast of COMING 2 AMERICA including Wesley Snipes, Leslie Jones, Tracy Morgan, Jermaine Fowler, Bella Murphy, Rotimi, KiKi Layne, Nomzamo Mbatha and Teyana Taylor in the most anticipated comedy film of the year.
We told you last week that the film’s plot hinges on Prince Akeem returning to Queens to find the son he never knew existed (played by Jermaine Fowler). We’re glad to see Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall back together and that we’ll get to see some of the original characters Murphy brought to life in the Queens barbershop as well. We’re still trying to piece together other little bits and pieces from the production stills though.
