It adds: "As these two worlds collide, Will reckons with the power of second chances while navigating the conflicts, emotions, and biases of a world far different from the only one he’s ever known."

Produced by the O.G Will Smith, Bel-Air will see the story of the Fresh Prince in drama format.

The concept was inspired by a skit created by a fan of the original show, Morgan Cooper.

Cooper released a trailer for what he imagined Fresh Prince would look like as a drama and it went viral back in 2019.

The real Fresh Prince saw the video on YouTube and went forward bringing an official version into production.

"3 years ago, my guy Morgan Cooper uploaded his fan trailer to YouTube, showing how he envisioned the Fresh Prince as a drama. Now, here is the first full look at his retelling of the story that’s always been so close to my heart. Cant wait for you guys to see it Feb 13 on @Peacock"

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air first aired on 10th September 1990 and ran until 1996.

Which trailer do you think is best? The fan-created one from 2019 or the original promoting the series release in 2022?
