Will Smith met the cast of “Bel-Air” for the first time at the premiere, and it was an enjoyable experience had by all.
At the premiere, Will said that he had no intentions of messing with “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” until Morgan Cooper made a YouTube trailer for a dramatic re-imagining of the show.
