Sign us up for this reboot.

Black Panther costars Lupita Nyong’o and Danai Gurira recently took their friendship to the next level by throwing a joint Coming to America-themed birthday party.

The friends, who are starring in director Ryan Coogler’s upcoming Marvel film, joined forces to celebrate their respective birthdays in style — Zamunda style.

In honor of the classic Eddie Murphy film about an African prince who gives up everything to move to America, Nyong’o dressed up as the Lady-in-Waiting, while the Walking Dead star was the Queen-to-Be.

Many members of the Black Panther cast attended, including T’Challa himself Chadwick Boseman, Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out), and Winston Duke (Person of Interest).  Singer and Hidden Figures star Janelle Monáe also made an appearance.

This isn’t the first time Nyong’o, an Oscar winner for 12 Years a Slave, and Gurira have worked together. Last year, Nyong’o starred in Eclipsed, a Broadway play written by Gurira.

See the birthday festivities below.
