Will Smith Introduces Star of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Reboot on Instagram

Will Smith has given fans an introduction to the star who will take over from him as the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

On Wednesday, September 1, the actor introduced the world to the young star by surprising him on Zoom.

Jabari Banks auditioned to play the lead role in the modern-day reboot of the beloved 90s sitcom – based around a streetwise kid from Philadelphia adjusting to life with his well-to-do California relatives.

And after a fierce search for someone to take over from Smith, the Men In Black star uploaded the announcement onto Instagram on Wednesday.

Jabari Banks graduated from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia last year and was raised in West Philadelphia just like Will Smith.

Asides his top acting skills, he also produces his own music and raps.

The youngster looked shocked to see Smith appear on his screen in the sweet video, and couldn’t hide his excitement as he’s revealed as the new Will for the show.

“It is an absolute pleasure to meet you, to be on with you,” Smith tells him.

“And from the deepest parts of my heart I want to say congratulations to you… You have the role of Will on Bel-Air.”

Spinning around in his chair, Banks declares: “I’m ready, I’m so ready. Ya’ll I’m ready to bite down.”

Calling the show a ‘dream come true’, he later tells Smith: “The way this show has impacted me and my life… it’s incredible.

“Thank you so much, I’m so grateful. This is an incredible thing.”

The original series ran from 1990 to 1996, and set Smith on his career path to superstardom both as a recording artist and actor.

It still remains one of the most beloved sitcoms of all time, with the entire cast reuniting last year to celebrate its 30 year anniversary
