About Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
Will grew up in Philadelphia on the rough side of the tracks with his mother. They had little money. When Will supposedly got into a fight, his mother thought it was time to find a better place for him to live. She sent him to his aunt and uncle’s house in Beverly Hills. Will knew the instant he arrived as The Fresh Prince of Bel Air that he was in a much wealthier place. Uncle Phil wasn’t pleased with Will’s demeanor and rudeness whenever he first joined the family, but after a while, everyone loved having Will around.
While Will was learning the ways of being respectful and how to manage money, he was also teaching his new family how to be more laid back and to enjoy life. He and his cousins would get in trouble from time to time, but it later taught them a life lesson that they all needed to learn no matter what their backgrounds were.
