Coming 2 America First Look Images!

Get ready to let you Soul Glo this coming March 2021. Thirty-two years after Coming to America, the comedic duo of Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall are back. They will be reprising their roles as Akeen and Semmi in Coming 2 America, which will debut on Amazon Prime Video.

Coming 2 America is set in the lush and royal fictional country of Zamunda. The newly-crowned King Akeem and his trusted confidante Semmi are pushed into another adventure. It will have them traveling through their African nation, all the way back to Queens, New York. The place where their first adventure took place.

Ahead of its release, Amazon Prime Video has released several first look images of the film. With these images, it seems like they wanted you to get nostalgic. We see very similar shots from the ones we saw in the first film. You can check them out below!

For me it was exciting to see the Soul Glo image in the background. Maybe we’ll get the opportunity to see a cringy commercial again. Which reminds me, will we be making a trip to McDowells? And what ever happened to Sexual Chocolate? Hopefully, we get the answers to some of these questions. It would be great to get a Samuel L. Jackson cameo as I believe that the role of the thief in the film was his first feature film.

Coming 2 America is directed by Craig Brewer. Based on a screenplay by Kenya Barris and Barry W. Blaustein & David Sheffield. The story was also put together by Blaustein, Sheffield with Justin Kanew. Which is based on characters created by Murphy, who is producing with Kevin Misher. Executive producers on the film are Brian Oliver, Bradley Fischer, Valerii An, Barris, Charisse Hewitt-Webster, Michele Imperato Stabile, and Andy Berman.

Murphy and Hall are joined by Jermaine Fowler, Leslie Jones, Tracy Morgan, KiKi Layne, Shari Headley, with Wesley Snipes and James Earl Jones. Also starring John Amos, Teyana Taylor, Vanessa Bell Calloway, Paul Bates, Nomzamo Mbatha, Bella Murphy, Vanessa Bell Calloway, Paul Bates

I am excited to see this film as it was a favorite in our house growing up. Hopefully, it is close to the style of the first film. I know I am going to sound very old when I say this but, they just don’t make comedies like that anymore. Let us know what you guys think of the first look photos down below!


Amazon Prime Studios’ Coming 2 America will debut on their streaming service on March 5th, 2021.
