Fresh Prince Of Bel Air: The Peacock streaming service released this Tuesday (23) the first teaser of the reboot of Um Maluco no Pedaço. In the video, actor Will Smith, who starred in the original series, appears as the story’s narrator.
Showrunners TJ Brady and Rasheed Newson spoke about the experience of bringing the iconic story into the current years. “We’ve stayed true to the legacy series’ original premise – Will’s life turned upside down after he was forced to leave West Philly and land in Bel-Air with its gated mansions and wealth, however, our new series brings Will and the Banks family in the world as we know it today,” they said.
Actor Jabari Banks will take on the role of Will Smith. “Our creative team, including Will, recognized that Jabari embodied the talent, charisma and arrogance needed to fill this spot,” said Brady and Newson. In addition to him, Cassandra Freeman (Atlanta), Olly Sholotan (Run Hide Fight), Coco Jones (Let it Shine), Akira Akbar (Captain Marvel), Jimmy Akingbola and Jordan L. Jones are part of the series’ cast.
The reboot of Um Maluco no Pedaço should be released in 2022, without a defined date.
