The original Coming To America film starring comedy/movie icons Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall came out the year I graduated high school in 1988. It's hard to believe it's taken that long for a sequel to the iconic film to come out. I guess you can't rush perfection, and knowing Eddie, he probably didn't want to do it without the original cast.

Yet, that is what is so amazing about Coming 2 America. After 33 years, the original cast actually came back. So, as far as I'm concerned, the highly anticipated wait was well worth it. The legendary James Earl Jones and John Amos, along with Shari Headily and Kiki Layne, plus Louis Anderson are back to make history again in the new sequel.

If that's not enough, additional star power has been added to the flick like Wesley Snipes, Rotimi, Leslie Jones, Stacy Morgan, and more. Enjoy movie night with the family tonight.

Coming 2 America premiered a day ahead of schedule on Amazon Prime now.
