Two decades after the first Independence Day invasion, Earth is faced with a new extra-Solar threat. But will mankind's new space defenses be enough?
In Japan, the American teaser movie poster featuring the Statue of Liberty getting attacked by the alien spaceship was replaced with RX-0 Unicorn Gundam from the Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn universe with it retaliating against the alien mother ship. The Anime News Network website reports "although the two works might seem unrelated, they are both science-fiction action spectacles that revive dormant but beloved franchises. Gundam Unicorn also involves independence - this is the aim of Zeon in its war against the Earth Federation. Harutoshi Fukui, the writer of the original Gundam Unicorn novel, explained the similarities further. 'Our two works are connected like soul brothers by the theme of humanity's indomitable spirit pushing despair aside. The enemy this time may be reeeeally big, but humans won't lose! The Unicorn Gundam will help too! (In our hearts.)'."

An extended version of the movie exists and will be released later after its initial theatrical release. Director Roland Emmerich has said: "It's only about seven minutes longer. It's interesting for fans to see which scenes we cut, although I like it when movies are short." A longer special edition of the original Independence Day (1996) was also released, which ran almost two-and-a-half hours at 145 minutes with the extended cut running for 154 minutes.
