Will Smith still has a lot of love for the Banks family.
Over 20 years after the series finale of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Smith reunited with his onscreen family, including Alfonso Ribeiro, Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Joseph Marcell and Daphne Reid. “Always amazing to spend an afternoon with my Fresh Prince family,” Ribeiro — who played Smith’s cousin, Carlton Banks, on the beloved sitcom — captioned a photo of the cast. “Wishing that James Avery was still with us to make this complete.”

Avery portrayed Uncle Phil on Fresh Prince during the duration of the series, which aired from 1990 to 1996. He died on Dec. 31, 2013.
Last year, ET spoke exclusively with Smith about the possibility of a Fresh Prince reboot, but he wasn’t too keen on reprising his character. “I’m not doing it,” the 48-year-old actor said simply. “If somebody wanted to, I would probably let them, but I have no intention.”
As for how he’s changed since his days on TV, Smith admitted that he was a lot more hyper back then. “Now, I’m bouncy,” he explained. “Back then, I’m sure I was quite irritating.”
