Amazon Prime Video paid a high price to get Coming 2 America to bypass theaters as an original movie. Most of the cast members from Coming To America reprise their roles from the 1988 film, including Eddie Murphy as King Akeem Joffer and Arsenio Hall as Akeem’s best friend, Semmi. Following his ascension to the throne of Zamunda, Akeem discovers that he had an illegitimate son, Lavelle Junson (Jermaine Fowler), during his time in America. Because Zamundan law demands male heirs, Akeem brings Lavelle home and attempts to groom him into a worthy successor. Meanwhile, General Izzi (Wesley Snipes) schemes to seize control of Zamunda for himself.
