After releasing a slew of first-look images last week, Amazon Studios has dropped the first teaser trailer for Coming 2 America.

Early on, plot details surfaced stating that the film will see Akeem (who is set to become Zamunda’s King) return to the U.S. to discover the son he never knew he had, LaVelle, to honor his dying father’s wish to see his grandson as prince.
Here’s the official logline: Set in the lush and royal country of Zamunda, newly-crowned King Akeem (Murphy) and his trusted confidante Semmi (Hall) embark on an all-new hilarious adventure that has them traversing the globe from their great African nation to the borough of Queens, New York – where it all began.
The sequel is directed by Craig Brewer, from a screenplay by Kenya Barris and Barry W. Blaustein and David Sheffield.
