The movie is a sequel to the 1996 blockbuster film Independence Day and takes place twenty years after the events of the first movie. The film begins with the world being at peace for the past two decades after the aliens' devastating attack on Earth, which nearly destroyed the planet. However, the humans have rebuilt and incorporated advanced alien technology into their society, such as new weapons, and machinery.

The story revolves around a group of heroes who must fight against an even greater alien invasion of Earth. The new threat is revealed after an unexpected distress signal is received by a group of military personnel who are conducting experiments on one of the alien ships that have remained on Earth since the original invasion.

The team is led by Jake Morrison (Liam Hemsworth), a skilled fighter pilot, and the stepson of former President Whitmore (Bill Pullman), who helped save humanity from the aliens' first attack. Along with David Levinson (Jeff Goldblum) who is now a well-known scientist and director of Earth Space Defense (ESD), they start working together to save Earth once again.

As the invasion increases in strength, the team discovers a new type of alien threat, which is even more dangerous than the previous attack. This new species of aliens are much smarter and have more advanced technology, which makes it harder for humans to defeat them.
