FRESH PRINCE OF BEL-AIR REBOOT
Who doesn’t know The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air? If you don’t have a seat in the corner! The show put Will Smith the Philadelphia native in the spotlight for acting. The first episode of the hit 90’s show aired on September 10, 1990 and ended on May 20, 1996. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air showcased humor and even serious issues that occurred in the 90’s.
“In West Philadelphia born and raised”
A few years there were rumors circulating that there may be a chance of the show rebooting. Will Smith has since set the record straight on the BBC show “The Graham Norton show”. Will made it clear to fans that he would need “Uncle Phil” back to reboot this show. James Avery also known as “Uncle Phil” passed away in 2013.

The response to Bel-Air has been amazing! I’ve been getting a lot of messages asking about the cam/lens choices I made on this project. I shot Bel-Air on Alexa Mini + Cooke S4’s. All of the Philly scenes were captured on a 32mm with no filtration, & all of the Bel-Air scenes were captured with a 28 and 50mm with 1/4 Black ProMist filtration.
FAST FORWARD TO 2019
Three Days ago a fan @Cooperfilms released a trailer and it has racked up over 500,000 views. This gritty breathtaking remake of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. The trailer is not only thought provoking but its also damn good! Cooper Films put a spin on it and this show would most definitely be a hit! Unlike other 90’s shows that has been rebooted, this trailer relates to times now! Hopefully, Will Smith will see this and change his mind. There is definitely room to pay homage to Uncle Phil.
