Oscar-winning costume designer Ruth E. Carter has posted her first images from Coming to America 2.
Carter posted two pictures featuring Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall to her Twitter page. “GOOD MORNING MY NEIGHBORS! It’s official! Preliminary fitting for Coming to America 2 with Prince Akeem, Semmi and Oscar,” she wrote, referencing not only that classic line from Coming to America and her Oscar, which she brought to the fitting.

Even though the tweet cements Carter’s involvement in the sequel, it also lets fans know that the duo of Murphy and Hall are officially back in action. More stars from the original film are expected to return, including James Earl Jones, Shari Headley and John Amos.
Coming to America 2 will be directed by Craig Brewer and written by Kenya Barris. The film will follow Akeem and Semmi back to America as they find Akeem’s long lost son. Barris will executive produce and Murphy and Kevin Misher are producers.
