*Will Smith reunited with the cast of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air on the season finale of his Snapchat series, Will From Home.
Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton Banks), DJ Jazzy Jeff (Jazz), Tatyana Ali (Ashley Banks), Karyn Parsons (Hilary Banks), Daphne Maxwell Reid (Aunt Vivian) and Joseph Marcell (Geoffrey) were in virtual attendance. There will also be a tribute to the late James Avery, who played Will’s Uncle Phil.
Snapchat shared two clips from the reunion on YouTube. One has Smith revealing that it was Ribeiro who convinced him to name his character in the show after himself. “It was such a deep insight that you had,” Smith recalled. “You said, ‘Because people are going to call you that for the rest of your life!’”
The other clip has Smith asking the cast how they dealt with people knowing them only as their Fresh Prince characters in the real world. DJ Jazzy Jeff said he got super annoyed when people tried to do the handshake he and Smith shared on the show. “You would see in peoples’ eyes when they were about to sneak the handshake, and I would just grab their hand and hold it!” Jeff cracked.
The first installment of the two-part finale premiered Wednesday on Snapchat, while the second will premiere Thursday, April 30th, at 6 a.m. ET. View both clips below:
