Here’s how to watch Coming to America 2. Which streaming service is the sequel on? Eddie Murphy returns as King Akeem Joffer this March.

What is your most anticipated movie of 2021?

Well, there’s a high chance that your most anticipated this year was the same as last year, considering such blockbusters as Dune and No Time to Die were delayed.

Nevertheless, it means there is more to cherish this year and Eddie Murphy fans can rest assured that Coming to America 2 – titled Coming 2 America – will be with them in no time.

John Landis’ 1988 classic is often regarded as one of the best comedies of the era, with some going as far to argue that it showcases Eddie Murphy at his very best.

Craig Brewer is in the director’s chair for the follow-up, which sees Akeem and Semmi venture back to America after discovering that Akeem has a son.

Excitement is high, so here’s how to watch Coming to America 2…

Eddie Murphy reflects on Coming to America

As noted by CinemaBlend, the 59-year-old American actor recently reflected on the importance of Coming to America:

“The legacy of Coming to America is that it is unique, it’s rare. Black people, we don’t get a lot of movies like this one. Coming to America is a romantic fantasy comedy. Usually, when we see ourselves on the screen, it’s heavy things…Rarely do we get just to go see some escapism. Just to go see a movie and not have to think about any of that stuff.”

He added: “[It’s] an all-Black cast, but the movie’s not about race. It’s not about… ‘wake up’ or ‘keep hope alive.’ It’s none of those things that you can just go and sit back and watch the movie.”

Coming 2 America is available to stream on Amazon Prime Video from Friday, March 5th 2021.
