Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall talk origins of 'Coming 2 America' and how de-aging 'Terminator' tech inspired sequel

Over thirty years after the original Coming to America hit theaters, its sequel, Coming 2 America, is hitting Amazon Video Prime. Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall, Wesley Snipes, and other members of the cast recently spoke with Yahoo Entertainment about the three decade delay and how cutting edge de-aging technology helped tie the two films together. "I was watching one of those movies with Schwarzenegger [2015's Terminator Genisys]. And they used a special effect, but it made him really young," Murphy recalled of the unexpected inspiration that pushed Coming 2 America into fruition. "And I was like, 'We could do a scene where we're young and ... we could connect it.'" Watch more from Murphy and more in the interview above.
