All hail the king… and the king-to-be? Coming 2 America shows the return of Eddie Murphy as King Akeem. The latest trailer finally reveals the plot details we’ve been waiting for.
Watch the trailer below.
Here’s the official synopsis from Amazon Prime:
Set in the lush and royal country of Zamunda, newly-crowned King Akeem (Eddie 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.
Plot details about the Coming to America sequel have been scarce. But thanks to the trailer, we finally get an idea of what the comedy will be about. Murphy’s Akeem returns to New York to retrieve his long-lost son, bringing him back to Zamunda to be heir to the throne.
There’s a lot of conflict – and humor – built into the premise. Akeem’s American son has to adapt to Zamundan culture. And on top of the culture clash, there’s a little tension surrounding the succession: Akeem also has a daughter, who would be first in line for the throne if she wasn’t a girl.
If you’re eager to see how it all plays out (and maybe you’ve been waiting a few decades for this movie, actually), you don’t have much longer to wait.
Coming 2 America hits Amazon Prime on March 5.
