Mbatha will reportedly take on one of the lead roles, although it is not clear at this point which one that will be. A few months ago, the actress moved to Los Angeles and left many South Africans wondering what she had developing in the pipeline that necessitated the move abroad.

Okay Africa reported that Mbatha released a statement saying, “To God be the glory. It is truly unreal to me. The sacrifices have paid off. The goal was never insurmountable, but rather a path of commitment, diligent work and sacrifices by me and my team”. The actress added that “Moving to Los Angeles was a choice of faith, and God has surpassed my wildest dreams. This moment is bigger than me this moment is for every single girl who doubts herself or just how big her God is. My life is a testament to that. My life says God is bigger than ginormous! I am grateful, I am humbled, I am honoured to be cast in Coming 2 America.”

While the likes of James Earl Jones, John Amos and Shari Headley returning to reprise their original roles, new members of the international cast include Tracy Morgan, Wesley Snipes, Leslie Jones, Kiki Layne, Rotimi, Teyana Taylor and several others.

As reported by The Sauce in January 2019, the Rights Activist was appointed as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR).

Coming 2 America is slated to be released in December 2020.
