The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air had audiences in hysterics during the ‘90s, but a darker version of the Will Smith sitcom is getting us rather excited.
A cinematographer named Morgan Cooper who grew up watching the comedy between 1990 and 1996 decided to use his own money to produce his own take on Will’s adventures.
Entitled Bel-Air, the trailer depicts the teenager from West Philadelphia getting arrested after a fight on the basketball court and his mother sending him off to live with his aunt and uncle in the elite California suburb of Bel Air in hopes of turning a new leaf.
Cooper described the project as a reinterpretation that brings the story into modern-day life in 2019.
The 4-minute clip, which looks as real as can be, caught the attention of Smith who offered high praise.
“I saw this trailer that Morgan Cooper hooked up, it was called Bel-Air,” the actor said on his YouTube page. “This is the first time that I heard something and I was like ‘Yo, that’s an idea that is brilliant.’”
Please get this made!
