Will Smith has announced Jabari Banks will take on his role in the upcoming reboot of the hit US TV sitcom The Prince of Bel-Air.

The character catapulted Smith, now 52, to stardom in the early 1990s.

Banks said the show had a huge impact on his life, adding that he once got his friends to join him in dressing up as characters from the TV show while he was at high school.

The reboot, which will appear on NBC streaming service Peacock, was inspired by a 2019 viral fan video by Morgan Cooper who re-imagined the comedy as a a modern-day drama.
