Jack Black says there’s something in the works to honor the 20th anniversary of School of Rock.

While on the red carpet for the premiere of The Super Mario Bros. Movie, Black told ET, “All those kids — dig this — they were 10 years old when we made that movie and now they’re all, like, 30. 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.'”

From the sounds of it, this will be somewhat of an informal gathering. However, Black did say he plans on sharing photos and video from the event on social media.

School of Rock was released in 2003. Per Box Office Mojo, the film grossed over $131 million worldwide. School of Rock also starred Joan Cusack, Sarah Silverman and a pre-iCarly Miranda Cosgrove. Directed by Richard Linklater, the film was written by Mike White, who has since rocketed to fame thanks to creating the hit HBO series The White Lotus.

Since its film release, School of Rock has been adapted into a Broadway musical and a series on Nickelodeon.
