Jack Black confirms School of Rock cast will reunite to celebrate 20 year anniversary

Jack Black confirms School of Rock cast will reunite to celebrate 20 year anniversary

The original film was released back in late 2003, with fans eager for a sequel to the beloved rock musical which also starred Joan Cusack.

Be prepared to rock out all over again, as Jack Black has confirmed he will be reuniting with the cast of School Of Rock.

It’s been nearly 20 years since the film first hit the big screens, with Black playing the lazy but loveable teacher Dewey Finn.

Black has certainly been busy since, and has a packed schedule this year.

As well as appearing in Kung Fu Panda 4 and the highly anticipated Borderlands film, Black is also promoting his latest project, The Super Mario Bros. Movie.

Out tomorrow (April 5), the film sees the comic actor as the big bad Bowser who will stop at nothing as he tries to conquer the Mushroom Kingdom and marry Princess Peach.

Starring Anya Taylor-Joy and Chris Pratt as plucky plumber Mario, the family-friendly movie will also feature beloved characters such as Koopa, Toad and Luigi.

If that wasn’t enough to make fanboys race to the cinema, the upcoming movie even shows the iconic rainbow bridge from the Mario Kart franchise.

More excitingly still, Black has teased that a sequel to School of Rock could be on the way

When asked by SiriusXM if he would consider doing a sequel to either School of Rock or Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny, he responded (in a slightly tongue-in-cheek fashion): "Yup. Both of them. Breaking news. We're thinking about doing both of those."

But while a sequel may be on the distant horizon - if it happens at all - Black has now teased an exciting update for School of Rock fans in the near future.

Chatting to Entertainment Tonight about Super Mario Bros, the 53-year-old actor spoke about the upcoming School of Rock 20-year anniversary and revealed he hoped to reunite with his co-stars.

However, the comic actor did admit that it will be a little strange seeing the former child stars after so long.

"All those kids - dig this - they were 10 years old when we made that movie and now they're all, like, 30," he told the outlet.

He added: "We're gonna get together and have a 20-year anniversary. We like to jam.”

He excitedly told the press: “I'm looking forward to seeing all of the grownups from School of Rock."

While the anniversary isn’t until October, Black has promised fans that he will ‘100 percent’ be posting pictures and videos of the reunion on social media.
