It’s hard to believe that its been 20 years since the release of School Of Rock, but it has been. The Jack Black-starring movie is getting a new SteelBook Blu-ray this September 26th, 2023 from Paramount Home Entertainment.
It was directed by acclaimed filmmaker Richard Linklater (Boyhood, Dazed and Confused), and written by Mike White (“The White Lotus”), SCHOOL OF ROCK arrived in U.S. theaters on October 3, 2003.
If you’ve never seen the movie or haven’t in a long time, here’s a bit of a refresher.
The uproariously funny film stars Jack Black as Dewey Finn, a hell-raising guitarist with delusions of grandeur. Kicked out of his band and desperate for work, Dewey impersonates a substitute teacher and turns a class of fifth grade high-achievers into high-voltage rock and rollers. The film boasts a sensational ensemble cast, including Joan Cusack, Sarah Silverman, Amy Sedaris, Mike White, and a host of talented young actors, including Miranda Cosgrove, who made her feature debut in the film.
