The ‘Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ reunion trailer which was released yesterday sent us down memory lane. Filled with laughter and fond flashbacks, we definitely cannot wait for the reunion from HBO Max.
Will Smith took to his social media page to show the preview of the trailer. The trailer shows himself, Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Joseph Marcell, Daphne Maxwell Reid, Alfonso Ribeiro, and DJ Jazzy Jeff at the Banks’ Bel-Air mansion.
“You probably seen the picture: me with the whole ‘Fresh Prince’ cast,” Will Smith says via selfie-cam at the top of the teaser. “But you not ready for this trailer. You couldn’t be ready for this trailer. Happy Thanksgiving. Thank you, Will. Yes, you’re welcome, Will.”
Waling into the cast’s studio living room, Will Smith said reminiscing, “How crazy is it, walking in here? Nobody ever asked me if I could act“.
“And you couldn’t!” Ribeiro shot back, causing an expected uproarious laughter.
A quieter moment saw reflections on the late James Avery, who played “Uncle Phil” on the show.
“James Avery was this 6-foot-4 Shakespearean beast, and I wanted him to think I was good,” Smith said, recalling an emotional scene. “I fall into his arms at the end of the scene, and he’s holding me, and the shot pans off, and he whispered in my ear, ‘Now, that’s acting.’“
A special surprise guest arrives at the end of the trailer to help everyone celebrate.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Reunion would be available from the 19th of November on HBO Max.
