    So fresh and cool! Meet the new star of ‘Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ reboot

    There’s a new prince in town and his name is Jabari Banks.

    The breakout star has been cast as the lead in the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reboot, taking over the role made famous by Will Smith.

    The announcement was made this week after streaming platform Peacock posted a video of the A-lister breaking the exciting news to Jabari via video chat.

    “Congratulations to you, you have the role of Will on Bel-Air,” the actor tells a surprised and emotional young star.

    WHO IS JABARI BANKS?

    Jabari Banks – who hailed his breakout role on the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air as a “dream come true” – is also an accomplished singer and songwriter and basketball player.

    The Philadelphia arts graduate auditioned for the role after his dad saw cinematographer Morgan Cooper’s 2019 viral fan film trailer, which ultimately got the thumbs-up from Will Smith.

    And he’s a huge fan of the original show; during his high school senior years he even dressed up as the lead character for a themed party.

    “I can’t wait to make you all laugh, cry, and feel every emotion in between”, he posted on social media.

    “Full circle! Go get ‘em,” responded Will in the comments section.

     

    FRESH PRINCE OF BEL-AIR’ COMMISSIONED FOR TWO SEASONS

    Despite production not yet even beginning, the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air has already been commissioned for two full seasons by Peacock.

    Will Smith, who will star behind the scenes as the show’s producer said: “We have just officially closed the deal with Peacock with an unprecedented two-season-order from a pitch.

    “I’ve been in this business for 30 years and that does not happen. They ordered two full seasons of Bel-Air based on the quality of the pitch”.

    ‘Reimagined vision’

    According to the show’s official synopsis, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reboot will follow Will Smith’s fictionalised character’s complicated journey from the streets of West Philadelphia to the gated mansions of Bel-Air.

    “With a reimagined vision, Bel-Air will dive deeper into the inherent conflicts, emotions and biases that were impossible to fully explore in a 30-minute sitcom format, while still delivering swagger and nods to the original show”, read a statement.
