The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air cast, Will Smith, Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton Banks), Tatyana Ali (Ashley Banks), Karyn Parsons (Hilary Banks), Daphne Maxwell Reid (Vivian Banks), Joseph Marcell (Geoffrey Butler), and DJ Jazzy Jeff (Jazz), have virtually reunited.
The virtual reunion of the costars of the hit ’90s sitcom was aired as part of Smith’s Snapchat series, Will From Home.
This was due to flips and turn arounds from self-isolation of COVID-19 pandemic.
The virtual meeting was released as two episodes on Snapchat’s Discover page on April 29 and April 30, in a couple of first-look teasers.
While reminiscing about the cast’s hit series, which ran from 1990 to 1996, Smith reveals that it was Ribeiro’s idea to keep his real name for his character.
He said: “The reason that my character’s name is Will Smith is because of you, do you remember that?” Smith asks Ribeiro in the clip.
“It was such a deep insight that you had. You said, ‘Because people are going to call you that for the rest of your life!”
The reunion will feature a tribute to the late James Avery (Phillip Banks), who died from open heart surgery complications at age 68 in 2014.
