Of all the sequels that we have received in the last few years that have come out years, or decades, after the original film, it’s possible none was more unexpected, or more welcome than Coming 2 America. While forgiving the sequels slightly cheesy title, Coming to America is one of Eddie Murphy most loved comedies and so the idea of seeing him, along with the remarkable cast from the first movie, again, is a very welcome idea. While we still have to wait a few more months to see the film itself, a collection of images have been released showing us the characters from the movie for the first time.
In the image above we see the duo of Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall, in their roles as Akeem and Semmi, together again. And honestly, it doesn’t look like 32 years have passed at all. They look sort of amazing. Older, sure, but not that much older. But Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall are but only two of the actors who will be returning for the sequel. Most of the major cast members from the first movie will be back in some capacity, including James Earl Jones, as Akeem’s father the king of Zamunda.
