Will Smith's Remake of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

Aw yeah, Will Smith is remaking the Fresh Prince of Bel Air!

?Fresh Prince? Reboot: Will Smith Developing Revival of ?Bel Air? | TVLine


Now, this is the story all about how The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air got flipped, turned upside-down.

TVLine has learned exclusively that the exploding revival craze is expanding to include the classic í90s sitcom, with original star Will Smith leading the charge (this time solely as a producer).


According to multiple sources, Smithís production shingle, Overbrook Entertainment, is in the very early stages of developing a present-day family comedy that puts a new spin on the fish-out-of-water tale while maintaining the spirit of Fresh Prince. (An official longline is still being hammered out.)

Iím told a pitch is being finalized now and Overbrook will begin shopping it around in the coming weeks. Smith would serve as an EP alongside his Overbrook producing partners James Lassiter, Caleeb Pinkett and Jada Pinkett-Smith

I wonder if people in their 30's went through this many reboots 20 years ago? I wouldn't have noticed.

nope we didn't, when we were young everything was new/original. Now they can't think of new ideas so may as well bring back the old shit that worked.

Nope but I've spoken to my parents about this before and they said the same thing. TV was so new back then there was nothing to copy.

Reboots, only a couple. Up to the 80's or so, it was mostly spin-offs rather than reboots.

Someone's comment in the IGN post.

Quote:
I would rather watch a spin-off where Carlton becomes POTUS and Will just lives in the White House. I would watch the s*** out of that.
I think I agree with this.

I don't want to see a spin-off or reboot of the original series; I want to see a 20 years down the road version of the show, starring as many of the original cast as they can. Seeing Carlton as a rich DotCom guy (or even something like POTUS), while Will is mooching off him after his degree of choice in college (forget what it was, if it was even mentioned?) failed.

And Geoffrey. Have to bring him back, maybe with him showing his son America and what it was like living there.

But Phil... There would have to be some running gag that would keep him around, somehow. No idea what, but Fresh Prince wouldn't be the same without some sort of reference to him coming back to bite Will's ass every now and again.

Retired, he's now constantly on vacations with Viv - Tahiti, France, etc. Every so often a postcard shows up saying how they're doing, with the last line being something directed at Will.

That goes SO against what the show was actually like, and what made it so great

The show never shied away from serious topics like death in the family, and things like that.

Fair point, although he died outside of when the show was running so they might handle it differently.
