Plot Summary

Sensing that trouble is brewing in the African kingdom of Zamunda, three long and prosperous decades after Prince Akeem and Lisa McDowell's opulent wedding in Coming to America (1988), King Jaffe Joffer and Semmi drop a bombshell. As a result, with three lovely daughters and no sons, it seems that Prince Akeem is with his back to the wall, as General Izzi, the megalomaniac despot of the neighbouring country of Nexdoria, dreams of seizing power through a political marriage of convenience. Now, newly crowned King Akeem and his trusted confidante, Semmi, have to return where it all began, the bustling borough of Queens, New York, to retrieve Lavelle: the illegitimate son unsuspecting Akeem never knew existed. Can the prince of Zamunda restore peace and stability in less than a week? Written by Nick Riganas

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia James Earl Jones was 88 years old when he filmed his scenes. Although in reasonably good health for a man of his age, and happy to appear in this movie, James did not want to travel far to do so. It is believed his few scenes were shot in one day on a rented TV soundstage nearer his home on the New York state/Connecticut border, without Eddie Murphy or any of the other Atlanta-based cast members present. This explains why he and Eddie Murphy never talk face-to-face in the film. See more »
Goofs The Lion's whiskers are white. When Prince LaVelle cuts the whiskers, they are white and only a few are cut. The next scene, the whiskers are two-toned and are more than what was cut. See more »

Crazy Credits Before the closing credits are almost gone, Saul is interrupting them to tell a joke, like in the first movie. In this film, Saul is reciting "The Signifying Monkey" as made popular by Dolemite aka Rudy Ray Moore, the real-life person Eddie Murphy played in his previous film, Dolemite Is My Name (2019), also directed by Craig Brewer.
