In news that will thrill many, Jack Black has revealed that a School Of Rock reunion is happening this year to celebrate the iconic film’s 20th anniversary.

Black revealed the news in a recent interview on SiriusXM via NME while promoting The Super Mario Bros Movie

When the beloved actor and musician was quizzed about revisiting and making a sequel to two favourite movies he stars in, The School Of Rock and Tenacious D In The Pick Of Destiny, he replied, “Yup. Both of them. Breaking news. We’re thinking about doing both of those.”

Black didn’t divulge any more details about either potential project, but he did confirm that the School Of Rock reunion is happening.

“All those kids – dig this – they were ten years old when we made that movie, and now they’re all, like, 30,” Black told Entertainment Tonight in a recent interview. 

The School Of Rock turns 20 this October. To make matters even more exciting, Black has promised to share footage of the upcoming reunion on social media.

He added, “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.”

Sadly, the School Of Rock reunion can’t be a complete get-together. In May 2021, Kevin Clark, the MVP of the film - drummer Freddy ‘Spazzy McGee’ Jones, passed away after getting hit by a car. He was 32 years old.

The collision reportedly occurred when he was riding a bicycle. He was swiftly rushed to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead. 

Jack Black shared a tribute after his castmate’s passing, sharing photos from behind the scenes of the film and at the 10th anniversary in 2013. 

“Devastating news. Kevin is gone. Way too soon. Beautiful soul. So many great memories. Heartbroken. Sending love to his family and the whole School of Rock community,” Black wrote.
