Independence Day 2 Cast and Crew interview and their character detail in the film:
Roland Emmerich showed an official title graphic and explained the title of the film in light of the storyline: “We call it in the film the War of ’96. This war is like a post-World generation that’s unified, and that’s amazing to see a world come together with a common enemy. That is a resurgence. Its Independence Day: Resurgence.”
Jeff Goldblum revealed his scientist David Levinson is the director of the new initiative. “It’s my job to lead the way in making sure everyone is safe on this precious planet. Having faced that last challenge, we are all working in a beautiful way to catch one target. Borders are no longer relevant in the same way, and that’s a very beautiful idea. We are working together,” Jeff said.
Liam Hemsworth shared the backstory of his leading character in the film, whose name is Jake and who drives a forklift-like “moon tug” for the lunar outpost of the new defense initiative.
“It’s kind of unlucky how he ends up in that ship,” he said.
“Jake lost his parents in the first attack, he grew up in an orphanage, and after completion his schooling he eventually joined the military and became a fighter pilot, and eventually became the top level fighter pilots. I think his ego kind of got in the way, he made a bad decision and put someone’s life at risk, and he got the great job of driving this moon tug, which is basically a forklift on the moon” he added in his statement.
Maika Monroe joins the ID 2 team and playing the character a daughter of Pullman’s President Thomas Whitmore. Her character works with the new president Ward plays.
“I work with Sela at the White House and have to live up to my dad. He was huge and I want to make him proud and I’m also a fighter pilot. I’m kind of a badass, I think,” Monroe said.
Brent Spiner, whose character appeared to be killed in the first film, said his character would be “as manic and excitable” in the new installment (and would have a different hairstyle). But he sidestepped the question of whether the character would be, in fact, alive.
