After three decades, the king of Zamunda is coming back 2 America as Amazon Prime Video released the official, star-studded trailer to the movie, a sequel to its 1988 predecessor.
The two-minute trailer opens with the former king of Zamunda, James Earl Jones, informing King Akeem that he has a son back in America who is destined to be the heir to the throne one day.
Thus, sending King Akeem and Semmi back to the United States—to the displeasure of Semmi who immediately shouts, “Oh hell no, Your Majesty!” As fans may recall, his character didn’t exactly have the best time in the original film.
The upcoming project is a sequel to ‘Coming to America,’ a 1988 romantic comedy film directed by John Landis.
The sequel, directed by Craig Brewer, features several movie stars including Jermaine Fowler, Leslie Jones, Tracy Morgan, Kiki Layne, Shari Headley (who is repeating her role in the original version as Lisa McDowell).
Others are Wesley Snipes, John Amos (who is also repeating his role as Cleo McDowell), and Teyana Taylor, an American singer-songwriter.
