Coming 2 America

More than three decades after Coming to America was released, Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall return for a sequel to the 1988 fan-favorite comedy. Murphy reprises his role as the former Prince Akeem — now king of the fictional African nation of Zamunda — who returns to America to find the son he didn’t know he had. Hall returns as Akeem’s best friend and trusted advisor, Semmi, with both actors also playing a wide range of supporting characters in America, much like in the first film. Jermaine Fowler, Leslie Jones, Tracy Morgan, KiKi Layne, Shari Headley, Teyana Taylor, Wesley Snipes, and James Earl Jones play supporting roles.
