Now this is the story all about how a fan-made reboot made you feel super old.

Hello, I am here to upset you and make you feel old. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air will be 30 years old in 2020. Let that sink in for a bit.

A fan-made film created by Sun Squared Media saved us the bother of trying to reimagine what the show might look like in 2019 and... it's kind of awesome. To make things clear, this is just a fan-made thing, it's not official. But I would absolutely watch this show. 

It's like a cross between Creed, The O.C. and Riverdale -- all things that I absolutely love. (Except for season 2 of Riverdale. I have some standards.) It lacks the humor of the original, but that's part of the joke: that in 2019 all reboots are gritty. 

Regardless, maybe it is time to reboot the Fresh Prince. YouTube had success with the Cobra Kai show -- why not bring back Carlton Banks? What's he doing now that he's deep into middle age? I have to know.
