The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Reunion Big Surprise!
Fans can look forward to hearing “Now this is the story all about how my life got twisted upside down,” this Thanksgiving. Will Smith gave fans a first look at The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunion special. Will Smith shared the trailer with the much mature cast of the 90s classic.
He posted the trailer on his Instagram page with a touching caption. “These are the people who made me the man I am today,” he wrote. “And I couldn’t let this day go by without marking the occasion.@freshprince reunion… Nov 19 on @hbomax! #freshprincereunion”

The special was taped on September 10, the 30th anniversary of the original series premiere date. The trailer features the cast coming together in the iconic living room. The cast included Will Smith, Alfonso Ribeiro, Tatyana Ali, Joseph Marcell, Daphne Maxwell Reid (who played the second Vivian Banks), and DJ Jazzy Jeff. In absentia is the late James Avery, who played Will’s, Uncle Phil.
The cast went down memory lane with scenes from episodes. Will revealed some secrets including the fact that Jazzy Jeff initially refused to participate in the show. “I had no aspirations to act,” said Jeff.
“Jeff turned down the show literally ten times,” said Smith. Daphne Maxwell Reid shared that she wasn’t keen on the idea of joining the cast as the second Aunt Vivian either. The cast also shared memories about the late James Avery. Will highlighted how he sought approval from Avery about his acting skills.
Many fans definitely loved the special moment between Smith and Janet Hubert, the original Aunt Vivian. “I couldn’t celebrate thirty years of Fresh Prince without Janet,” said Smith.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunion special will debut Thursday, November 19, on HBO Max.
