Yesterday, August 30, 2013, the cast of “School Of Rock” reunited for the first time in ten years. If you are not old enough to recall what school of rock was about here is theimdb.com summery.
Down and out rock star Dewey Finn gets fired from his band, and he faces a mountain of debts and depression. He takes a job as a 4th grade substitute teacher at an uptight private school where his attitude and hijinx have a powerful effect on his students. He also meets Zack, a 10-year-old guitar prodigy, who could help Dewey win a “battle of the bands” competition, which would solve his financial problems and put him back in the spotlight.
The problem with this reunion is I feel old you can see why below from the buzzfeed article http://www.buzzfeed.com/jordanzakarin/jack-black-and-the-school-of-rock- kids-reunited-and-everyone?s=mobile
