Will Smith reveals Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunion trailer and release date
Now this is a story all about how The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air cast reunited.
Will Smith has revealed the trailer and a Nov. 19 release date for HBO Max's upcoming special, which brings him back with the rest of the Banks family — including the original Aunt Viv actress Janet Hubert, who has loudly voiced her displeasure with Smith since she was replaced on the NBC sitcom.
In addition to the Fresh Prince reunion, a drama reboot of the '90s comedy is in the works at Peacock. Executive produced by Smith, Bel-Air is based on a 2019 viral video.
Here's the description of the new show: "Set in modern-day America, Bel-Air is a serialized one-hour dramatic analogue of the '90s sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air that leans into the original premise: Will's complicated journey from the streets of West Philadelphia to the gated mansions of Bel-Air. With a reimagined vision, Bel-Air will dive deeper into the inherent conflicts, emotions and biases that were impossible to fully explore in a 30-minute sitcom format, while still delivering swagger and nods to the original show."
