Roland Emmerich, director of the Independence Day sequel, joined his cast on Monday for a live-streamed press conference where they revealed that the long awaited sequel to the 1996 blockbuster will be named Independence Day: Resurgence.

Resurgence will take place 20 years after Will Smith, Jeff Goldblum and company thwarted alien invaders from harvesting our planet and extinguishing the human race.

Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, and Vivica A. Fox will be reprising their roles from the first film.

Will Smith will, unfortunately, not be reprising his role as fighter pilot Captain Steven Hiller.

HOWEVER, Hunger Games heartthrob Liam Hemsworth will be joining the cast, as well as Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe, Sela Ward, and Charlotte Gainsbourg (to name a few!)

Check out the full press conference below!
