Waiting for you at the theater this weekend is Zoolander 2, which finally hits screens after a 15-year layoff. While early reviews of this latest adventure of really, really, ridiculously good-looking people haven’t been particularly kind, but it’s not the only long-gestating sequel that is coming down the pipeline, not by a long shot.

Long delays between sequels are nothing new, and while sometimes they don’t work out, other times they do. There were quite a few last year that lived up to their predecessors, especially the likes of Mad Max: Fury Road and Creed, and we’d much rather filmmakers take the time to get things right rather than simply serve us a half-baked follow up. Considering that, here are some upcoming sequels that have been on the way for years and years that we have high hopes for.

There are, of course, tons more of these on the way, so you should let us know what long-in-the-works sequels you’re looking forward to.

Independence Day: Resurgence
It’s been 20 years since Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day helped make star Will Smith one of the biggest stars in the world. Even though the former Fresh Prince won’t be back for Independence Day: Resurgence later this year, the aliens will be, and that may be the most important part. In the aftermath of the first movie, the human race has used the recovered alien technology to beef up our defenses, and when the angry visitors from space return, we will need every last tool we can get our hands on. Some key players are back, including Jeff Goldblum, Vivica A. Fox, and Bill Pullman, and there will also be some new blood trying to save the day, with the likes of Liam Hemsworth, Maika Monroe, and Jessie Usher joining the party.
