Will Smith's "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" days are long in the actor's rearview, but over the last week or so, fans of the show have been treated to quite a bit of nostalgia.
About a week ago, thanks to a handful of folks on Reddit, we discovered the fact that 48-year-old Will Smith looks like a splitting image of the late James Avery, the actor who played Uncle Phil more than 20 years ago.
Well, it looks like the "Fresh Prince" hits will just keep on coming.
Monday, Will Smith and his "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" co-stars got together for an epic cast reunion, and the photo Alfonso Ribeiro, Carlton Banks, shared on Instagram will give you major nostalgia feels!
You ready to start making trouble in your neighborhood? Sorry, couldn't resist.
Is anyone else hearing the "Fresh Prince" theme song on repeat?
Yup, that's Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Daphne Maxwell Reid, Joseph Marcell, Alfonso Ribeiro and, of course, Will Smith!
To caption the above photo, Ribeiro wrote,
Always amazing to spend an afternoon with my Fresh Prince family. Wishing that James Avery was still with us to make this complete.
RIP, Uncle Phil!
Naturally, the above reunion photo is probably going to make more than a few "Fresh Prince" fans speculate about a reboot.
However, Will Smith pretty much definitively shot down that idea last year.
The 48-year-old said,
I don't think ever, like pretty close to when hell freezes over. Like we're going to leave that one alone.
So, you're saying there's a chance?
Ribeiro also weighed in, saying,
Since the passing of my favorite dad in the world, ever on TV, James Avery passed, the chances of a Fresh Prince coming back together will not happen. I don't think we feel as a cast that we would do even our fans justice. We all felt like he was the centerpiece or the nucleus of that show. Without him, it just doesn't work. So even if the whole cast comes to support me on the show, we're not looking for that to happen. And that's OK.
Well said, my dude.
