Will Smith thinks the YouTube reinterpretation of “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” is “brilliant.” An almost four-minute clip called Bel-Air, created by filmmaker Morgan Cooper, recreates Smith-starring’s favorite sitcom as an indie drama.
Actor Bad Boys for Life watched the viral video and posted a review of his YouTube page on Friday. “I saw the trailer that Morgan Cooper picked up, it was called Bel Air,” Smith said, next to Cooper. “This is the first time I’ve heard anything and I’m like, “Yo, that’s a brilliant idea.”
Cooper told Smith that he grew up watching a series that went to NBC from 1990 to 1996 and co-authored with James Avery, Alfonso Ribeiro, Tatiana Ali, Carine Parsons, Joseph Marcell, Janet Hubert and later Daphne Reed. In previous interviews, the filmmaker said he used his own money to finance a cunning project. The future filmmaker described his video as a “reinterpretation” that would bring history “to modern life in 2019. With Smith’s support, who knows what the future holds for Cooper.
Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” is a classic ’90s sitcom with the amazing Will Smith, who is finally known as the start of his career. With 6 seasons (148 episodes), this popular show continued from 1990 to 1996, but still creates waves with new generations through Netflix and other streaming services.
What is the Fresh Prince of Belair Theme Song ?
Although it was literally two decades ago, almost everyone knows the infamous lyrics and can’t help but rap on the theme “Yo Home to Bel-Air! But do you know all the crazy facts behind the staging and writing of the famous theme? Here are some interesting facts about the song theme and the introduction. We’d like a minute, so sit down here or read something else on our site!
Apparently it only took 15 minutes to record and write the theme song! Jazzy Jeff and Will Smith were definitely not new to the show or music world, and apparently they already had a good concept of music and they knew what they wanted the final product to look like. These two released FIVE albums when the show was in production, so it’s safe to say they knew what they were doing. It’s less like they knew, and we can’t argue with that. It sounds like this infamous song got really good!
We all know all the lyrics (and there are 344!) to this popular theme song, but do you know all the lyrics to the extended version of ENTIRE? There’s a full version, which floats for 3 minutes.
Quincy Jones is actually behind the song for the theme introduction, but it was officially released by Fresh Prince and Jeff Jazzy (also known as Will Smith and, well, Jazz). Listen to more (and old school classical music) brilliant Will Smith and Jazzy Jeff.
