Here’s what The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air might look like in 2019

Hello, I am here to upset you and make you feel old. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air will be 30 years old in 2020. Let that sink in for a bit.

A fan-made film created by Sun Squared Media saved us the bother of trying to re-imagine what the show might look like in 2019 and… it’s kind of awesome. To make things clear, this is just a fan-made thing, it’s not official. But I would absolutely watch this show. 

It’s like a cross between Creed, The O.C. and Riverdale — all things that I absolutely love. (Except for season 2 of Riverdale. I have some standards.) It lacks the humour of the original, but that’s part of the joke: That in 2019 all reboots are gritty. 

Regardless, maybe it is time to reboot the Fresh Prince. YouTube had success with the Cobra Kai show — why not bring back Carlton Banks? What’s he doing now that he’s deep into middle age? I have to know.
