28 years ago today Coming To America was released featuring a 27-year-old Eddie Murphy and an all-star cast including James Earl Jones, Arsenio Hall, Vanessa Bell Calloway, John Amos, Eriq La Salle, Shari Headley, Samuel L. Jackson and more.

Over the years fans of the film have been able to enjoy mini cast reunions, like this moment in 2016 with Headley and Calloway on the Steve Harvey Show.

Rumors of a sequel to the 1988 cult classic surfaced earlier this year when a mysterious tweet from Eddie Murphy’s account asked if we were ready for a part two. While Eddie’s rep has denied the tweet, Calloway told TMZ that she’s ready whenever!

Speaking of Calloway, let’s celebrate how AMAZING the 60-year-old mother of two looks!

While mums the word on if a sequel will ever happen, most video on demand services still have the film in their arsenal (unfortunately it will be leaving Hulu July 31).

TELL US: Should Coming To America be remade or is it better to leave it as is?
