Will Smith reunited with the “Fresh Prince” cast 30 years after the first episode aired and it was epic. During their virtual call, they paid tribute to their late co-star James Avery and it got super emotional. More inside…

Time is really flying!

It's been 30 years since the first "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" episode aired. To celebrate, Will Smith virtually reunited with the cast on his Snapchat series “WFH Will From Home," which included actors Carlton (played Alfonso Ribeiro), Ashley (played by Tatyana Ali), Hilary (played by Karyn Parsons), Aunt Viv (played Daphne Reid), Jazz ( played by DJ Jazzy Jeff) and Geoffrey (played by Joseph Marcell).

No, the original Aunt Viv (played Janet Hubert) did not participate because we all know she doesn't like Will. We just had to get that out the way.

During their reunion, the cast paid tribute to James Avery, who played Uncle Phil on the hit 90s sitcom. He passed away on New Year's Eve in 2013 at the age of 63 from heart surgery complications. The cast watched a collage of throwback scenes featuring Uncle Phil that got everyone teary eyed.


“Wow. That just makes me teary. The first couple of times I’m seeing James," Will said.

“I loved that man," Daphne Reid, who played the second Vivian Banks on the show, said tearfully.
