It took over 30 years, but the highly-anticipated trailer for Coming 2 America is here.
And, what would the sequel be without Murphy’s and Hall’s additional roles in the movie?
In an interview on The Ellen Show, Murphy talked about the torture of having to endure hours of makeup to dress up as several characters in movies like Coming to America and The Nutty Professor. Although he promised himself that he’d never play multiple characters in a film again, he told Ellen that this movie just made sense.
So, which Murphy characters can we expect to see again in the sequel?
The trailer teases the barbershop crew played by Murphy and Hall. And, while we didn’t catch a glimpse of “Jackson Heights very own, Randy Watson,” Murphy confirmed that he reprised the role along with all the other roles from the original film. And, just when it looks like Murphy has outdone himself yet again, the comedian said that fans could expect to meet a new character also played by him — a farmer.
Aside from Murphy and Hall’s multiple character-comebacks, other fan-favorites from James Earl Jones, John Amos, and Shari Headly will be back.
Last week, the cast teased images from the film.
In an Instagram post, Teyana Taylor introduced fans to her character Bopoto and her “papa” General Izzy, played by Wesley Snipes. “Bopoto & her papa General Izzy ready to f#%k some shit up,” Taylor captioned. “Y’all ready for #coming2america ??!!!!”
With the trailer’s release, fans should start packing their bags now to head with King Akeem and Semmi from Zamunda back to New York.
Take a look at the trailer inside. And, tell us — will you tune in?
