A new trailer for Peacock’s “Bel-Air” drops featuring Meek Mill’s “Dreams & Nightmares Intro.”
A new teaser was released today (January 25th) as the show is scheduled to make its premiere on Feb. 13th. The original show is known for its legendary intro that is rapped by Fresh Prince himself, but 20222’s version has a new spin. It is scored by Meek Mill‘s “Dreams & Nightmares Intro” while showing Will, played by Jabari Banks, on the basketball court before a scuffle breaks out and a gunshot is seemingly fired. From there, the shot cuts to Will getting driven to the airport where his mom tells him that he’ll be moving to Bel-Air.
“With this dramatic reimagining, we wanted to create a show that stands on its own while honoring the spirit and innovation of the original series,” said Morgan Coooper, director, co-writer, and executive producer of Bel-Air. “Because Bel-Air is a drama, we’re able to really peel back the layers of these characters and themes in a way that you simply couldn’t do 30 years ago in the half-hour sitcom format. We’re able to go have tough conversations that challenge perspectives. At its core, Bel-Air is a celebration of the Black experience through the perspective of a family.”
