On Liam Hemsworth’s character (former fighter pilot) from the live chat:
He eventually joined the military and ended up in the best of the best of the best of the fighter pilots. And he made a bad mistake, a bad decision, and put someone’s life at risk, and got the great job of driving this Moon Tug, which is basically a forklift on the Moon. Where he gets to move around different pieces on the Moon. Which is not really an exciting job for a fighter pilot like himself. He’s a pretty energetic guy, he likes to do exciting things. That’s not exciting.
On Sela Ward’s character (current United States President) from the live chat:
[She’s] Entirely different [from Bill Pullman’s President Whitmore]. It’s a totally different political landscape. She’s tougher, more decisive, not afraid to use force, she’s more aggressive. She’s a very different animal because it’s a very different time. We’ve been preparing for twenty years for the inevitability of an invasion. We don’t know by whom or when. So there’s a very different climate in terms of the tenor of the movie. Especially for the president.
On the other characters mentioned in the live chat:
Patricia Whitmore (played in Resurgence by Maika Monrow, played in the first film by Mae Whitman) is working for the new president in some capacity.
Jasmine (Vivica A. Fox) is no longer a stripper and is working as a hospital administrator and that her son Dylan (played by Jessie Usher in Resurgence, replacing Ross Bagley) has grown up being the “son of the savior” — Will Smith
David Levinson (Jeff Goldblum) is in charge of Earth Space Defense, the multinational defense group in charge of planetary defense.
I was skeptical about an Independence Day sequel, especially one without Will Smith, but hearing that Earth has decided to use the alien technology from the first film in its defense has altered that opinion. The movie now reminds me of Macross and how Earth responded to their alien threat in that universe.
