A dark and nostalgic trailer for the Prince of Bel-Air remake

The same story, but with a new Will, a new Uncle Phil and above all a much more realistic atmosphere, without recorded laughter …

A little over 30 years ago, Will smith sang in the credits: “I got in one little fight and my mom got scared, And said: you’re moving with your aunt and uncle in Bel-Air … ” The new version which is revealed today through a long trailer will take the small rapped backstory of the Prince of Bel-Air very seriously!

In this pure juice remake, but reinvented in a modern drama sauce, the young Will, a lost kid who grew up in the infamous streets of West Philadelphia, will find himself caught in a settling of scores. Arrested and threatened by a gang, he must flee. His mother sends him to live with his sister, Vivian, who married a wealthy Californian judge. Here is Will who arrives at Bel-Air, in the affluent suburb of Los Angeles, far from its neighborhood and its landmarks. Integration will be difficult, but he will be guided along the way by the butler Jeffrey and especially Uncle Phil …

The whole Banks family is there, with little Ashley, big Hillary and of course cousin Carlton, who looks a lot less silly and a lot more arrogant than in the sitcom version. The trailer already highlights a stinging conflict between the two.

Above all, the video suggests that a criminal intrigue will be added to the original story. Indeed, it seems that the Philadelphia gang will track Will down to Bel-Air and the drama could therefore take on the air of a thriller at times. This good old man Prince of Bel-Air (still produced by Will Smith) has clearly entered the 21st century!

Launch on February 13, just after the Super Bowl, on the American platform Peacock of the NBC channel. No broadcaster in France for the moment.
