My family and I still watch the re-runs of the 90's classic 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' starring Will Smith, the late James Avery, Alfonso Ribiero, Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parson and more.
Now a filmmaker has taken the show and given it an updated spin. And, this thing is GENIUS.
Writer/director/cinematographer Morgan Cooper re-imagined the Fresh Prince as a drama that takes the original concept of the show and expands on it.
In the 2019 version, that trouble is gun possession, which leads Will’s mother to force him to move. The trailer recasts all the major roles so perfectly it’s amazing.
Check out the trailer above or sing along with the theme song of the original below.
