Jan. 26 (UPI) -- Newcomer Jabari Banks has his life flipped-turned upside down in the new teaser trailer for Bel-Air, a dramatic reimagining of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

Banks stars as Will Smith's character Will, who gets involved in a basketball game that turns violent at the end in the clip released on Wednesday.

Will is then moved from West Philadelphia to Bel-Air to stay with his aunt, uncle and cousins inside their lavish mansion.

The teaser is reminiscent of the opening credits sequence that kicked off every episode of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

Co-stars include Adrian Holmes as Phillip Banks, Cassandra Freeman as Vivian Banks, Olly Sholotan as Carlton Banks, Coco Jones as Hilary Banks, Akira Akbar as Ashley Banks, Jimmy Akingbola as Geoffrey, Jordan L. Jones as Jazz and Simone Joy Jones as Lisa.
