‘Coming 2 America’ drops first trailer featuring Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall – Fox News

The first trailer for the highly anticipated sequel “Coming 2 America” has finally dropped.

On Tuesday, Amazon Studios gave fans a special treat: seeing Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall reprise their roles as Prince Akeem Joffer and his best friend Semmi.

The original comedy, “Coming to America,” came out in 1988 and “2” will follow newly crowned King Akeem of the fictional country Zamunda as he travels back to New York to locate his long-lost son. 

Last week, the studio shared the first-look images on Twitter, showcasing not only Murphy, 59, and Hall, 64, but also several other members of the cast, including screen icon James Earl Jones and Shari Headley.
