The sequel is directed by Craig Brewer, who previously directed Murphy in Dolemite Is My Name.
The exclusive pictures show a smiling and regal Jones wearing his crown and one of a crowned Murphy as Prince Akeem on his throne, and one of him dressed in tourist-style clothing with multiple NYC logos.
"Of the countless characters I've portrayed, King Jaffe Joffer remains one of the most enjoyable and iconic characters I've had the pleasure of playing", he tells PEOPLE.
Coming 2 America is a sequel to the 1988 movie Coming to America, which follows Akeem Joffer (Murphy), the prince of the fictional African nation of Zamunda, as he travels to the United States in hopes of finding a bride.
Nearly two years ago, it was announced that a sequel to the 1988 cult comedy film Coming to America was in the works.
Producer Kevin Misher added: "What could be better than a return to Zamunda?" "This powerful cast, both reuniting the original and welcoming the newcomers, represent the essence of Black Royalty". "I wasn't going to do it because I was like, 'I don't want to be part of another remake.' I thought, 'Is it going to be good?' When I saw the script, the rewrite of the script, I was like, 'Wow, this is actually really amusing, ' she said to ESSENCE". As Akeem prepares to become king, he learns that he fathered a son (Jermaine Fowler) with a local woman (Leslie Jones).
Arsenio Hall appears again as Akeem's servant and friend, Semmi. He told People, "This is the flawless time to return to Zamunda because it's been a while since we've had a great comedy that everybody can enjoy. Zamunda is a very amusing place, and the world needs that right now".
However, Murphy is excited for audiences to see what new cast members - such as his own daughter - bring to the film.
"What I'm most excited about the audience seeing is how awesome this movie is", he says.
"We have incredible new cast members who are all so amusing and really brought their A-game", he said. "I think I'm as excited as the audience will be because this is just nonstop entertainment".
