When Independence Day Resurgence arrives in cinemas on June 23, 20 years almost exactly!

will have passed both on screen and off since the first film.

That s a long time, but for co-writer and director Roland Emmerich, the wait was a necessary evil.

I had one big idea for the film which was to create a totally different world that s enhanced by alien technology and that the whole world was united, Emmerich told io9.

Secondly, I said OK, so, the Mothership this time, comes down to Earth and it s as big as the Atlantic Ocean.

Several members of the original film s cast have also returned to help bring Emmerich s vision to life.
