Before there was a Wakanda there was the beautiful fictitious country of Zamunda. Now coming back to the big screen is the follow up movie “Coming to America”. This time Black Panther’s Oscar-winning costume designer, Ruth E. Carter is taking her talents to the set of “Coming to America 2”. The news was revealed via Twitter when Carter tweeted: “GOOD MORNING MY NEIGHBORS! It’s official! Preliminary fitting for Coming to America 2 with Prince Akeem, Semmi and Oscar.”
The sequel will go on to feature the original dynamic duo of Eddie Murphy as Prince Akeem and Arsenio Hall as Semmi. Also, cast members like John Amos, James Earl Jones, and Shari Headley are expected to return. The plot revolves around Prince Hakeem becoming aware of a long lost son in the states and he must make the trip back to meet him.
The costumes in the first film was unforgettable and it is without a doubt Ms. Carter will live up to her reputation and not disappoint. The aim is to start filming sometime this year and to have the film out by August 7th, 2020.
