Let’s get rockin’! Paramount Home Entertainment is ready to raise its horns for a School of Rock 20th Anniversary Steelbook Blu-ray!
Who’s ready to feel old? School of Rock is celebrating its twentieth anniversary this September with the School of Rock 20th Anniversary Steelbook Blu-ray! Paramount Home Entertainment is pulling out all the stops for this glorious presentation, packing the release with more raised horns than a sold-out Metallica concert at Madison Square Garden!
Initially released in October 2003, Richard Linklater (Dazed and Confused, Boyhood) directs School of Rock from a script by Mike White (The White Lotus, The Good Girl, Chuck & Buck). Jack Black stars in this heartfelt, laugh-out-loud comedy with Joan Cusack (Toys, Grosse Pointe Blank), Sarah Silverman (Wreck-It Ralph, The Sarah Silverman Program), Mike White (The One and Only Ivan, Gentlemen Broncos), Miranda Cosgrove (iCarly, Despicable Me), Rivkah Reyes (Gianna, A Holiday I Do), and more!
In School of Rock, Black’s struggling musician character, Dewey Finn, poses as a substitute teacher at a prestigious school where he convinces his students to form a rock band for an upcoming Battle of the Bands. Finn doesn’t take long to forge an unbreakable bond with the kids, as their love for rock and roll leads to the ultimate school project of making musical dreams come true.
The special features for the film’s 20th-anniversary release are as follows:
• Commentary by actor Jack Black and director Richard Linklater
• Kids’ Kommentary
• Lessons Learned on School of Rock
• Jack Black’s Pitch to Led Zeppelin
• School of Rock Music Video
• Kids’ Video Diary: Toronto Film Festival
• MTV’s Diary of Jack Black
• Dewey Finn’s History of Rock
• Theatrical Trailer
Speaking with Entertainment Tonight in a 2022 interview, Black said working on School of Rock is the highlight of his career, saying, “My best memories are just the group of kids, and how funny and great they were. It’s definitely the highlight of my career, I can say that. Honestly.”
School of Rock lives on thanks to commanding performances through Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical adaptation. School of Rock is also a music company that strives to teach young musicians how to wield the incredible power of music. You can catch many of their performances online. It’s quite a sight to see!
