Will Smith Virtually Reunites With 'The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air' Cast

During these hard times, it's the little things, like a virtual Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air reunion that can really brighten someone's day!

Thankfully, Will Smith pulled it off and it was amazing!

PSA: There was a *Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air* reunion.

And even though it happened virtually, it still counts, and I'm still just as excited as I would be if it happened in-person.

Since the current pandemic has made it impossible for people to get together and hold interviews, most TV hosts have taken their shows to the web!

For example, Jimmy Fallon has been filming The Tonight Show from his home.

And while I obviously love the regular televised version, his telecommuted version of the show has been almost just as awesome.

He has interviewed Justin Timberlake, The Jonas Brothers, Halle Berry, Ciara, Sean Evans, Shailene Woodley, Kate Hudson, and many others.

Plus, his daughters have made a few appearances!

They are so adorable.

I hope they start making appearances on the real show once quarantine is over!

Ellen Degeneres has also taken her show online, interviewing celebs from her living room.

She has spoken to Jason Momoa, Kate Hudson, Chris Hemsworth, Wanda Sykes, Tiffany Haddish, Kristen Bell, Trevor Noah, and others!

All that to say, the entertainment industry is doing its best not to let coronavirus hold them back.

They're making do with what is available to them for the moment!


Which brings us to yesterday, when Will Smith reunited the cast of *The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air* for the final episode of his Snapchat series, *Will From Home*.

And it was the greatest thing I've seen in a long time.

It was so great to see such familiar faces!


We saw Alfonso Ribeiro who played, Carlton Banks, Tatyana Ali, who played Ashley Banks, Karyn Parsons, who played Hilary Banks, Janet Hubert who played, Vivian Banks, Joseph Marcell, who played Geoffrey the butler, and DJ Jazzy Jeff, who played Jazz.

The cast caught up, reminisced on the show and its success, and gave a special tribute to the late James Avery, who played Uncle Phil on the show.

James passed away in 2013 at the age of 68, due to surgical complications.

The two-part episode aired yesterday and today on Snapchat's discovery page at 6 am EST and 3 am PST.

And it was unforgettable to say the least.

Even the trailer for the episode was iconic.

Will explains that Alfonso (AKA Carleton) is the reason that Will's name on the show is his name IRL.

"Do you remember — so, the reason that my character's name is Will Smith is because of you," Will said.

"Do you remember that?," he asked him.

"I do, I do," Alfonso replied. "We had talked, and I said, 'Look, if you're ever gonna do this show, you've gotta be Will Smith.'"

"It was such a deep insight that you had," Will said.

"You said, ''Cause people are going to call you that for the rest of your life!,'" Will exclaimed, laughing.

Anyways, need I say more? I really couldn't have asked for a better virtual reunion.

It's the reunion we've been waiting such a long time for, and they certainly delivered it — even under such complicated cirumstances.

Be sure to tune in on Snapchat! You won't regret it!
