You never know how sequels are going to go especially ones this far apart, but now that a director has been named, the general plot of the story has been revealed.
In the sequel, Akeem learns about a long lost son and must return to America to meet his unlikely heir to the throne of Zamunda. The intention is to bring back the original cast which includes Arsenio Hall, who played the prince’s aide Semmi, Shari Headley, who was courted by the prince when he went undercover as a fast food worker, John Amos, who played her father, and James Earl Jones, who played the king.
Coming to America is a cult classic, so I hope they don’t mess it up.
