‘The Fresh Prince of Bel Air’ is a sitcom from 1990 – 1996 with Will Smith as the lead and it was the breakthrough for his career.
A reboot of the series has been in talks but nothing official confirmed. And that until a couple of days ago when it was publicly made that indeed it’s in works.
The awesome stuff here is that there was an unofficial [fan made] trailer released last year and produced by Morgan Cooper and turned the show it into a drama. Could be cool, right?
Well, Will Smith will return to his roots; this time as a producer, the same Morgan Cooper, the maker of the viral “fake” trailer, will serve as the co-writer, director, and the executive producer. His video is now the OFFICIAL trailer.
Both Netflix and HBO Max seem interested, according to reports.
Here’s the trailer:
I was sceptical at first because the original formula was perfect and nothing could match it. All the characters were like that (imagine Carlton’s dance moves, buttler Geoffrey’s sarcasm, Uncle Phil- yeah you get the idea), the humor perfectly timed and it was a joy to watch.
However, after seeing the trailer, they have the possibility to do something above the normal. They don’t have to match anything, they need to do their own thing and I put my hope that they will achieve something GREAT.
