The trailer for Coming 2 America has been released:
Eddie Murphy will be reprising his role as Akeem Joffer in the sequel to the 1988 classic comedy, with Coming 2 America set to be released on Amazon Prime on 5 March 2021.
Others making their return - almost 33 years after the original - include characters King Jaffe Joffer (James Earl Jones), Queen Lisa (Shari Headley), Cleo McDowell (John Amos), Maurice (Louie Anderson) and the motley barbershop crew.
Murphy has already spoken about how excited he is that his daughter will be starring in the eagerly-anticipated movie. The 59-year-old said: "What I'm most excited about the audience seeing is how amazing this movie is.
"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."
The sequel sees King Akeem back in his native Zamunda, before once again journeying to Queens in New York - where his story began all those years ago.
Murphy added: "This is the perfect time to return to Zamunda because it's been a while since we've had a great comedy that everybody can enjoy. Zamunda is a very funny place, and the world needs that right now."
Producer Kevin Misher added: "What could be better than a return to Zamunda? We are so excited for Amazon Studios to bring Eddie Murphy and Coming 2 America to a worldwide audience where they can laugh again with characters they have loved for 30 years, and meet new ones that they will love for years to come."
