If you’re a fan of the first film, then chances are you’re going to like what you see in this first look at the sequel.
The movie is set in the lush and royal country of Zamunda, and the story “continues to follow newly-crowned King Akeem and his trusted confidante Semmi as they 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.”
