Yesterday, Amazon Studios released a series of photos from the highly anticipated sequel, COMING 2 AMERICA, which is set to be released exclusively on Prime Video on March 5, 2021.

The film is based on characters created by Eddie Murphy, who starred in the first installment Coming to America. The synopsis for the sequel is:

“Set in the lush and royal country of Zamunda, newly-crowned King Akeem (Murphy) and his trusted confidante Semmi (Arsenio Hall) embark on an all-new hilarious adventure that has them traversing the globe from their great African nation to the borough of Queens, New York, where it all began.”

Kenya Barris and Barry W. Blaustein & David Sheffield wrote the screenplay for the story that was also written by Blaustein and Sheffield, along with Justin Kanew. Murphy and Kevin Misher produced COMING 2 AMERICA, and Ruth E. Carter designed the costumes.
