Independence Day Sequel Gets an Official Name and More Details

Jason McDonald

Yesterday 20th Century Fox held a little press event for one of it’s biggest upcoming sequels “Independence Day 2.”  The event, which you can watch below, paraded out the film’s stars in front of media for a Q&A and revealed some minor details including the official title of the upcoming film.

Dropping the “2” in favor of a subtitle, “Independence Day 2” will now be called “Independence Day: Resurgence.”  The video below sheds some light on where our returning characters are at at the start of the film.  For example, Jeff Goldblum’s character is now the head of the Earth Defense department that oversees the Earth’s protection from otherworldly threats.  Brent Spiner alludes to his character being alive and with longer hair.  The return of his character is still a bit of a mystery as he seemingly died in the original film.  I have a crazy theory that the alien that used him to talk to the other humans is now trapped in his mind.

Check out the video below and stay tuned for more “Independence Day” news as the film goes into production.
