The first trailer for Bel-Air, the Fresh Prince reboot, has arrived, and it features an exciting recreation of the famous theme song from the original.
The teaser trailer only includes a few selected lyrics from the original theme song rather than the entire song. It’s also uncertain whether this will be the show’s theme song or just a promotional piece for Bel-Air.
T.J. Brady and Rasheed Newson, the show’s creators, noted in a recent press statement that Bel-Air was always a story that honored the strength and love of the Black family and that they had decided to keep faithful to the series’ original idea.
In a new press release from the show’s creators, showrunners T.J. Brady and Rasheed Newson said, “At its heart, Bel-Air is a coming-of-age story that celebrates the strength and love of the Black family. We have stayed true to the original premise of the legacy series – Will’s life is turned upside down after he is forced to leave West Philly and lands in Bel-Air with its gated mansions and wealth, however, our new series brings Will and the Banks family into the world as we know it now.

On the other hand, the new series will usher Will and the Banks family into the current era.
The original cast members of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air gathered for a reunion special on HBO Max last year to honor the show’s 30th anniversary. The cast has just announced that the show will welcome a newbie, Jabari Banks, who will take Will’s place.
