Will starts out singing the theme song with a female fan. Other fans put their own unique twist on the legendary theme song, but Will brings it back home with his delivery of “I’ll tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel-Air.” The piece was directed by Vincent Peone and produced by ArtClass.

The Oscar nominee is one of the executive producers of Bel-Air, which makes its debut on Peacock on February 13. The dramatic reboot is bringing us the Fresh Prince story with a fresh perspective. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air touched an entire generation when it premiered in the 1990s. Now Bel-Air is going to do the same for Gen-Z.

Bel-Air is set in modern-day America and is a dramatic take on Will’s complicated journey from the streets of West Philadelphia to the gated mansions of Bel-Air. As these two worlds collide, Will reckons with the power of second chances while navigating the conflicts, emotions, and biases of a world far different from the only one he’s ever known.

The series was not only inspired by The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Morgan Cooper’s 2019 viral trailer that reimagined the hit ’90s sitcom also served as inspiration. Newcomer Jabari Banks plays Will in Bel-Air, alongside an incredible ensemble cast that includes Adrian Holmes, Cassandra Freeman, Olly Sholotan, Coco Jones, Akira Akbar, Jimmy Akingbola, Jordan L. Jones, and Simone Joy Jones. Bel-Air will premiere on Peacock on Super Bowl Sunday with the first three episodes at launch and new episodes released weekly.
