Look, you can be excited about Jurassic World with its non-dadbod Chris Pratt hunkiness, its none-too-subtle sexism, and its plot pulled straight out of Deep Blue Sea. But there’s no Ian Malcolm. So what even is the point?

International Business Times confirms what producer Dean Devlin teased on Instagram: Goldblum will reprise the role of computer whiz David Levinson!

Here’s what we know so far about the twenty-years-in-the-procrastinating sequel:

*Independence Day Forever (which I guess is a better title than Independence Day More Times) is set 15 years after the first film.
*It might be split into two parts, and will center on a rematch between Earth and those pesky alien invaders.
*Along with Goldblum, Vivica A. Fox, Bill Pullman and Brent Spiner are returning.
*Will Smith is too busy Suicide Squadding or something, and Mae Whitman has been replaced by It Follows’ Maika Monroe.
*We now hate Monroe for reasons that are totally unfair. (You’ll never be our Egg, Maika.)
*Monroe, Liam Hemsworth and Jessie Usher will reportedly flesh out “a youthful romantic subplot” because that’s what the first film was missing, teen love triangle.
