Legendary Pictures is staying in the giant-monster business.

During its presentation today at Comic-Con International, the production banner behind this year’s Godzilla reboot confirmed that director Gareth Edwards will return for the sequel — putting to rest any doubts about his involvement after signing on to helm one of the Star Wars spinoffs.

Vulture reports Legendary CEO Thomas Tull also showed a video reminiscent of the Godzilla opening-credits sequence, depicting “classified” footage of Rodan, Mothra, and Ghidorah. “Now we have more monsters to play with,” he said, “and we’re excited about it.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Legendary also delighted the Hall H crowed with footage of an ancient island that ended with the reveal of a roaring King Kong. That was followed by a tweet that announced, “Prepare to explore the mysterious and dangerous Skull Island. In theaters November 4, 2016.”
