Coming To America 2': Eddie Murphy And Arsenio Hall Spotted On Set Of Much-Anticipated Sequel

Can you believe it?

Coming to America 2 is a sequel thirty years in the making, and just about every one of the original cast members are back and ready to film. As every Sexual Chocolate fan knows, the first film focused on the pampered Prince Akeem (Eddie Murphy) – the heir to the throne in the fictional country of Zamunda – traveling to Queens in New York to find his own queen. Coming to America 2 will tell the story of Prince Akeem, who is preparing to be crowned when he finds out some shocking news that will change his life.

Going back to America

Coming to America ended with Prince Akeem rejecting the woman to which he was betrothed – Iman Izzi (Vanessa Bell Calloway) – and marrying Lisa McDowell (Shari Headley), who he fell in love with during his undercover trip to America.

Prince Akeem met Lisa when he worked at her father Cleo’s (John Amos) fast food restaurant McDowell’s, which was a blatant rip-off of McDonald’s. Coming to America is legendary in the comedy world, as it starred both Murphy and Arsenio Hall (whose main role was as Prince Akeem’s best friend, Semmi) playing numerous memorable characters of different ages and genders.

his time they are returning to America when they find out that Prince Akeem has a son named Lavelle. Akeem and Semmi are heading back to New York so that father and son can meet, and Akeem can groom Lavelle for the royal life he’s been missing.

Filming is ready to begin in Georgia

Cameras recently caught Murphy arriving in Georgia so the Coming to America 2 cast and crew can begin filming, and Hall hopped off the plane right beside him. Fans will be excited to know that Murphy and Hall aren’t the only original cast members who will be returning for the highly-anticipated sequel.

According to Cinema Blend, James Earl Jones (who play Akeem’s father King Jaffe Joffer), John Amos, Shari Headley, Vanessa Bell Calloway, and Paul Bates (who fans will remember as Oha) have all signed on to reprise their roles.

Eddie Murphy is officially returning for the “Coming to America” sequel. Now, we can confirm Arsenio Hall, Shari Headley, James Earl Jones and John Amos will also all come back for the film!

Jermaine Fowler will reportedly play Eddie Murphy’s long-lost son It appears that Fowler will play the role of Lavelle, and Jones has the role of his mother. Layne has been cast as Prince Akeem and Lisa’s daughter, which means she is a princess of Zamunda and not a male heir.

According to Coming to America 2 plot leaks making their way around the internet, King Jaffe Joffer’s dying wish is for Akeem to find his son, which is what leads him to return to America. The big question is – will Lavelle move to Zamunda and become the heir, cutting in front of his sister?

We don’t know yet if Cleo stayed in Zamunda with his daughter, or if he returned to Queens to run his restaurant, and it’s unclear how Imani Izzi will fit into the story after losing her chance to be Queen of Zamunda. Snipes will reportedly play General Izzi, Imani’s brother.

Craig Brewer, who recently worked with Murphy in the upcoming Netflix film Dolemite Is My Name, has signed on as director. Filming is scheduled to begin in just a few days, and Coming 2 America will hit theaters on December 18, 2020.
