The long-awaited sequel to “ A Prince in New York ” debuts on Amazon Prime on March 5, and fans are already wondering if the sequel will be as good as the original.
In an interview with ET, Wesley Snipes was asked the same question and guaranteed that “the audience will pee and laugh.”
“Seriously, I think people will have to wear diapers because they’re going to pee and laugh. Sometimes I couldn’t even finish the recording because we started laughing during the scenes. The cast of this film is very talented and some original stars are also returning. The story is very interesting, fun and engaging. I think fans will go back in time when they watch.
The star also said he was extremely happy to be able to star alongside Eddie Murphy.
“I almost cried when I was told I was going to work with Eddie [Murhpy]. For an artist, it’s like winning the lottery. And this film has an incredible production. When I walked into the set and saw the set and costume design, I thought, “That’s why I do what I do”. I like my job.”

In the plot, Snipes will play General Izzi, a strict and eccentric military man from Zamunda, Akeem’s (Murphy) homeland.
In the new story, Akeem finds out he has a lost son in the United States and returns to find the new heir to the throne of the fictional kingdom of Zamunda.
The film is directed by Craig Brewer.
“After long years of waiting, I am delighted that ‘A Prince in New York 2’ is making official progress,” Murphy said in a statement. “We’ve assembled a great team, which will be led by Craig Brewer, who just did an amazing job on ‘My Name is Dolemite,’ and I can’t wait to bring all of these classic and beloved characters back to the movies.”
