Thankfully, Murphy is reprising his role in the sequel, alongside OG co-stars James Earl Jones and Arsenio Hall, who played King Jaffe Joffer and Semmi respectively. The film finds Murphy returning as Akeem - though this time he's not a prince, but the king of Zamunda.
Coming 2 America is set to come out in March 2021 on Amazon Prime Video, which as Black Geeks of DragonCon so nicely put it, "This movie coming out in 2021 already proves that it will be a better year than 2020".
In the upcoming sequel, Prince Akeem, who is set to become the king of the fictional country of Zamunda, finds out he has a son he never knew about - a street-savvy Queens native, Lavelle.
