You’ve seen the flicks. Now, the first official trailer is here! Take a trip back to Zamunda and then NYC in the Coming 2 America trailer inside…

Oh, hell yes!

The first trailer for Coming 2 America has been released. And it’s everything we thought it would be. The trailer also confirms the return of Sexual Chocolate and Randy Watson.

The much awaited sequel is set to debut on Amazon Prime on March 5th.

Several of the film’s original actors will be returning to reprise their roles, including Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall, James Earl Jones, Shari Headley, Vanessa Bell Calloway, Garcelle Beauvais, Paul Bates, and Louie Anderson. The star-studded cast also features new faces too, including Hollywood vet Wesley Snipes, “Supermarket Sweep” host Leslie Jones, “Power” star/R&B crooner Rotimi, “The Last O.G.” star Tracy Morgan, singer/actress Teyana Taylor, comedian Michael Blackson, “Crashing” actor Jermaine Fowler, If Beale Street Could Talk actress KiKi Layne, and comedienne Luenell.

Yep, everyone is going to need to see this black classic in the making.

”black-ish” creator Kenya Barris, Eddie Murphy, and Kevin Misher produced the film and Craig Brewer (Hustle & Flow, “Empire”) directed, so it’s in good hands. By the way, Oscar winning costume designer Ruth E. Carter worked her magic with the costumes.

In the sequel, Shari Headley will be reclaiming her throne as Prince Akeem’s wife, Lisa McDowell. Akeem [Eddie’s character] is preparing to become King of Zamunda when he learns about his streetsavvy, Queens-bred son named Lavelle (played by Jermaine Fowler). Looking to crown the new prince, Akeem and of course, his sidekick, Semmi [played by Arsenion Hall], set out to hit the streets of New York again.

“What I’m most excited about the audience seeing is how amazing this movie is,” Eddie Murphy said about the upcoming film. “We have incredible new cast members like Wesley Snipes, Tracy Morgan, Leslie Jones, Jermaine Fowler, KiKi Layne and my own daughter, Bella Murphy, among others, who are all so funny and really brought their A-game. It’s just a great picture and I’m excited to have audiences see it.”

“I feel it’s the perfect time for everyone to return to Zamunda!” he adds. “This powerful cast, both reuniting the original and welcoming the newcomers, represent the essence of Black Royalty. Working with Eddie Murphy has been an indelible experience and his dedication and passion for this project is truly inspiring. It means the world to me to be a part of this beloved franchise.”
