Move Over Will Smith, 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' Reboot May Be Getting A Princess

Warner Bros.

I'll be blunt about it: if you didn't love watching The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, you're probably a liar.

The 90s sitcom had everything: great humor, lovable characters, and zesty plot lines for the whole family to enjoy.

As devastating as it was to say goodbye to the beloved series, it had a great six-year run, and my siblings and I still relished in watching repeats whenever they came to air.  

Recently, rumors have been swirling around about a potential Fresh Prince reboot being in the works after Smith posted an animated picture of the show's cast to Instagram.

While Will Smith is now at the ripe old age of 49 (who is now four years older than James Avery was when he began playing the role of his uncle), we were curious on what this revival would entail.

Would the story still center around Smith and what he'd been up to for the past 20 years, or would we be following a new generation where he becomes the tough yet supportive patriarch every TV family needs?

Well, we hate to burst your bubble, but we still don't know. However, the company that owns the rights to Fresh Prince, has recently filed for a new trade mark, suggesting a potential twist we weren't expecting.

According to TMZ, the company has applied to trademark "Fresh Princess," for a television program, various other media platforms, and merchandise including clothing, footwear, backpacks, and animal collars.

So what does it mean? Well, all signs point to Smith being dethroned with a new princess taking his place!

While there's no word on if Smith will be involved in this speculated revival, but fans are already interested in who would be playing the leading lady.

Personally, my money would be on Smith's 17-year-old daughter, Willow.

Why? Well the young Smith already has a few acting roles under her belt, and like her famous family, has started a budding music career. Plus, she's already has the fresh blood in her!

Who do you think should star in a Fresh Prince reboot?
