Arsenio Hall jokes Zamunda is ‘COVID-free’ at ‘Coming 2 America’ premiere

Celebrities turned out in droves to celebrate the virtual premiere of “Coming 2 America,” so it’s a good thing the fictional land of Zamunda hasn’t been plagued by the coronavirus pandemic.

“Zamunda is COVID-free,” star Arsenio Hall joked in a live chat at the premiere’s virtual afterparty.

Other attendees included Garcelle Beauvais, Jay Pharaoh, Kenya Moore, Shaun Russ, Ken Jeong, Rick Ross, Denzel Whitaker and Cameron Diaz, who praised the long-awaited sequel to the beloved 1988 comedy.

“That was worth waiting 35 years,” Diaz, who retired from acting, wrote.

The party featured three rooms: the Grand Hall, the Throne Room and the Royal Bar, where attendees could chat and enjoy music from DJ PZB and performance group Chop and Quench.

“P-Valley” star Brandee Evans was so impressed by Chop and Quench’s moves she quipped, “Let me learn some moves for season 2 of ‘P-Valley.’”

“Coming 2 America” is out on Prime Video on March 5.

Ahead of the movie’s premiere, Hall and co-star Eddie Murphy revealed they were “forced” to include a white cast member in the original, which led to Louie Anderson’s hiring. Anderson’s performance seemed to impress them enough, as he returns to the sequel as Maurice, a goofball fast-food worker at the golden-arced McDowell’s.
