Jack Black has confirmed that he's planning a 20th-anniversary reunion with the cast of the 2003 comedy 'School of Rock.'

The film stars Black as Dewey Finn, a guitarist who impersonates his substitute teacher roommate at a prep school. Once there, he forms a rock group with the young students, leading them to a local Battle of the Bands competition and helping them discover more about themselves in the process.

'All those kids — dig this — they were 10 years old when we made that movie and now they’re all, like, 30,' Black recently told Entertainment Tonight. 'We're gonna get together and have a 20-year anniversary. We like to jam. I'm looking forward to seeing all of the grownups from 'School of Rock.''

In April 2022, Black told ET that his time on the project was one of his fondest times working in Hollywood. 'My best memories are just that group of kids, and how funny and great they were,' he said. 'It's definitely the highlight of my career, I can say that. Honestly.'

Released in 2003 to both critical and box office success, 'School of Rock' has become a classic in the two decades since, inspiring a TV show and Broadway musical, as well.

Details about what the cast reunion would entail are not clear. Unfortunately, one prominent kid in the movie's band, Kevin Clark (who played drummer Freddy Jones), will not be present; Clark was killed in a car accident in Chicago in 2021 at the age of 32.
