The wait is finally over, folks. Sure, it may have been 30+ years in the making, but Coming to America's sequel is officially here. And we've got everything you need to know...
On Friday, March 5th, Eddie Murphy’s much-anticipated sequel, Coming 2 America, was set to bless our screens. Only it didn’t. Instead? We were in for a real treat, with the comedy dropping a day early – on Thursday the 4th. But now that the film has finally arrived, what exactly can we expect?
Aside from a whole lot of laughs (of course), the sequel will take us on an adventure like never before. Not only will we follow Prince Akeem's journey to becoming king of Zamunda, but we'll be catching him as he steps into another tricky role: Parenthood. That's right, didn't know Akeem had a son? Don't worry, neither did he.
Sure enough, though, after discovering his long-lost child, the Prince sets off on yet another journey to America. And if it's anything like we've seen before? Then we can go ahead and thank the comedy gods for this one. But perhaps that's also because we'll be introduced to another Murphy heir. Any guess who we're referring to?
Bella Murphy, otherwise known as Eddie's 19-year-old daughter. Not only will the famous prodigy be joining dad on screen, but she'll be making her acting debut. That's right, Bella will be playing Murphy's on-screen daughter, Princess Omma. Are you as excited as we are?
"I’m really passionate about pursuing acting, so when my dad told me about this part, I was excited," the actress gushed. As for what other tricks Murphy's got up his sleeves for us? Will he be reviving one of his multiple characters from the original film?
We guess we'll have to find out for ourselves. That being said, if you have an Amazon Prime subscription (or know the password to somebody else's), go and check out Coming 2 America for yourself. And until next time? Be sure to stay tuned for all of the latest updates.
