"RIP James", Will wrote, paying tribute to him. Will Smith shared some pictures from the reunion on September 10 to honor the exact 30-year anniversary of the Fresh Prince premiere, and he and Hubert were all smiles.
Per a press release, this was the first time Smith and Hubert spoke in 27 years, sitting down for what is described as "a candid conversation".
In a picture posted to Smith's Instagram, the I Am Legend star is seen smiling alongside Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Joseph Marcell, Daphne Maxwell Reid, DJ Jazzy Jeff and Alfonso Ribeiro. He shared another photo of himself and Janet Hubert-Whitten, who played Vivian for the first three seasons. Nope! It appears the photo is from the reunion that was taped for HBO Max and it looks like the duo is taking steps to bury the hatchet.
The cast of the"Fresh Prince of Bel-Air came together for a reunion special that will air on HBO Max this
In addition, The Fresh Prince clothing brand has also announced today's launch of a new limited-edition capsule in honor of the show's anniversary.
HBO Max said the show will be a 'funny and heartfelt night full of music, dancing, and more special surprise guests'.
The hit comedy from the 90s ran for six seasons centred on the life of a teenager from Philadelphia who moves to Bel-Air, California to live with his wealthy uncle and aunt. The reboot has already gotten a two-season order from Peacock. The two have famously been at odds since Hubert's departure from the show. It is being directed by Marcus Raboy and will be executive produced by Rikki Hughes.
"With a reimagined vision, BEL-AIR will dive deeper into the inherent conflicts, emotions and biases that were impossible to fully explore in a 30-minute sitcom format, while still delivering swagger and nods to the original show".
