Synopsis of the film

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.

Eddie Murphy statement

In COMING TO AMERICA, an African prince travels to America to find a regular girl. He brings her back to make her his princess. It’s a modern fairytale that a lot of people love. It was the very first time they ever had a movie with Black folks, where you had kings and queens. This film is a really cool continuation of that story. I want people to have a great experience while watching it.

Director Craig Brewer statement

The real benefit of making a sequel to a classic like COMING TO AMERICA 30 years later is that you get into the territory of your characters having lived lives.  With Akeem, he’s watching his kids grow up and have their own opinions and also, he now carries the weight of being the king of his own castle. I knew those were interesting elements that we could bring to the story, along with the laughter. What might surprise many people is that there’s a lot of heart and soul to the movie.

Release date

The movie will be available on March 5, 2021 on Amazon Prime Video
