Watch the Full Bel-Air Trailer Again
Cinematographer Morgan Cooper's fan-made video for a modern-day Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is so good, it looks like it'd be an actual series or film. "Like most '90s kids, I grew up watching Fresh Prince. Even as a kid, I always thought there was more to the story . . . so I decided to make this," he tweeted as he shared his trailer for Bel-Air (2019).
In this version, Will Smith (played by Jerry Madison) is sent to live with his uncle Phil in Bel-Air after a fight on the basketball court in West Philadelphia gets him arrested for gun possession. In his fancy new California digs, Will adjusts to his new life with his family and navigates friendships, hardships, and love (don't worry, Carlton is still there and still nagging).
This isn't the first time we've seen an "edgy" remake of a childhood classic. An Arthur parody trailer follows the dark story of Arthur and his friends trying to solve the mysterious death of Muffy. I'm personally not always here for the idea of rebooting something that's already fantastic, but this is a different story. Cooper's trailer on YouTube has gotten more than a million views since its publish date on March 10. Everybody thinks this should be a real movie ASAP! Watch the full video ahead, and check out all the praise it's rightfully getting.
