Will Smith returned to the red carpet with his family in tow for the world premiere of the highly-anticipated follow-up to his Academy Award-winning role in King Richard.
The Smith clan was all smiles and high glam on the red carpet world premiere of the actor’s Apple TV+ original film Emancipation, which tells the story of Peter, a man enslaved in Louisiana who risks his life for the sake of family and freedom, based on the shocking true story of “Whipped Peter,” whose infamous photo documented the cruel realities of chattel slavery.
Smith’s wife Jada, children Trey, Jaden, and Willow, and mother-in-law Adrienne “Gammy” Banfield-Norris were all in attendance, showing support and love on the carpet.
