“All these kids, you know, they were 10 when we did this movie and they’re like 30 now,” Black said. “We will come together and celebrate a 20th anniversary. We like to improvise. I’m really looking forward to seeing all the adults at the School of Rock.” Black promised to share photos and videos from each gathering on social media later this year.

The 2003 film School of Rock saw substitute teacher Dewey Finn (played by Black) mold a ragtag group of fifth graders into an ensemble he would challenge in a local Battle of the Bands. The film grossed over $130 million worldwide with an estimated production cost of $35 million. The film also starred Joan Cusack as director Rosalie “Roz” Mullins, Mike White as Dewey’s best friend and fellow rocker Ned, Sarah Silverman as Ned’s girlfriend, and Miranda Cosgrove as band manager Summer “Tinkerbell” Hathaway.
There have been reunification talks before. The cast reunited for a 10th-anniversary screening amid School of Rock 2 hopes. Since then there has been a Broadway production based on the film and a Nickelodeon sitcom, which debuted in 2016 and ran for three seasons and 45 episodes ran. Actor Kevin Clark, who played the young drummer, died in 2021 after being hit by a car while riding a bike.
