DJ Jazzy Jeff made comments about a possible “Fresh Prince” reunion recently and they have people stirring.
“There have been talks with people about doing something. I think it would be cool if they did it and go down memory lane again.” Said one of the co-stars and longtime collaborators of Will Smith.
However, Alfonso Ribeiro, the actor who brought Carlton Banks to life, has reported against these rumors, saying, “[R]egretfully there can never be a real Fresh Prince reunion without James Avery, who’s [sic] loss we all still miss.”
James Avery, who passed in 2013, is still sorely missed by the cast and crew, so perhaps Ribeiro is referring to a “real” reunion not being possible, but that a different reunion could be.
Meanwhile, Jazzy Jeff and Will Smith will reunite at Livewire Festival in Blackpool, England, for the first time in a while, so there are still possibilities we haven’t seen the last of “Fresh Prince.”
