Is the Fresh 'Princess' of Bel Air Happening?by

Gender-swapping entertainment properties of yesteryear is nothing new – you only have to look at the likes of the recent Ghostbusters adaptation in 2016 to understand that there is very much a trend for relaunching male characters and properties as female – this has been apparent, too, in the world of Marvel (as Thor was turned female for some time, and Captain Marvel – traditionally male – will be portrayed on the big screen by Brie Larson). There’s also the ground-breaking moment when long-standing sci-fi staple Doctor Who allowed its main character to regenerate into a female for the first time in nearly sixty years. It’s certainly an exciting time for those looking to empowering female role models – and while the trend seems to continue, there is also fervent debate that follows.

The latest property proposed for a reboot and a gender-swap is The Fresh Prince of Bel Air – Will Smith’s breakout 90s series about a Philadelphia teen moving in with his affluent Bel Air uncle and aunt – as it seems that TMZ suggest there has been trademarking action taking place on the phrase ‘Fresh Princess’ – setting all manner of online media portals discussing the possibilities. Changing Smith’s character female could make the show completely different – and entertaining a second time around in a whole new way. However, there’s been absolutely nothing confirmed – meaning that all suggestions of a gender flip on the way being little other than conjecture at this point.

Will Smith has talked fondly about the show that made him a household name, having entertained the idea of helping to potentially produce a reboot – he’s even recently backed the idea of the show coming back in animated form. Smith is now around the age the late James Avery was when he played the fearsome ‘Uncle’ Phil Banks in the 90s sitcom – once again setting various tongues wagging about what role Smith could have in a role or reboot.

The Fresh Prince of Bel Air remains one of the most beloved TV shows of its exam, and with a 90s revival still running current, it remains to be seen whether or not we will see the likes of Will, Carlton et al on our screens again – regardless of format. The show remains hugely popular on streaming services, meaning that monopolizing on the brand may well be a very smart move. Smell ya later? Maybe…
