Jack Black and his band of rocking fifth-graders that starred in "School of Rock" got together to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the film with a reunion performance in Austin, Texas.

The 2003 comedy featured Black as a wannabe rocker who poses as a substitute to make a quick buck. To win a Battle of the Bands competition, he transforms his 10-year-old students into a band of rock stars. Black was nominated for a Best Actor Golden Globe for his performance.

On Thursday, the cast got together at Austin's Paramount Theatre for an anniversary screening of the movie and a reunion performance.

"10-year 'School of Rock' reunion! Sooo good to see everyone," actress Miranda Cosgrove, now 20, posted on Instagram along with a photo of the reunited case. Cosgrove starred as class brownnoser Summer in the film, and went on to become one of the most highly paid child stars for her Nickelodeon TV series "iCarly."

Black opened up about his "School of Rock" experience in a recent Esquire magazine interview.

"On the set of a [director] Rick Linklater film, there's not that sort of nervous energy and panic that you see on other film sets," Black said. "There's no yelling. There are no freak-outs. Rick doesn't bring in all that sort of artsy-fartsy pretentiousness that you would expect out of someone who's made so many great, like, artistic achievements in his day. He's super meat-and-potatoes with his approach. It's only after you step back and look at the final product that you go, oh, this dude's an artist."  

Here's a clip from the 2003 movie "School of Rock:"
