Ever since “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air” fans got wind of a reunion special coming their way earlier this fall, people have been on the edge of their seats waiting for more.
Well, thanks to Will Smith — the Prince himself — we have a release date with a new trailer to boot.
HBO Max and CNN share a parent company, WarnerMedia.
The video — featuring cast members such as Tatyana Ali, Joseph Marcell and Alfonso Ribeiro — combines moments from the TV series with shots of the cast around a couch together rehashing behind the scenes secrets and memorable moments while filming the TV show.
But the reunion special won’t just be smiles and laughs.
“James Avery was this six-foot-four Shakespearen beast,” Smith can be heard saying in the trailer. “And I wanted him to think I was good.”
Those aren’t the only tears.
The trailer shows the cast reflecting on the importance that the show — which ran for six seasons and a whopping 148 episodes — especially had for Black viewers.
“Our show meant Black excellence to people,” Ali said in the trailer. “That excellence was the way that we loved each other.”
