Cancelled Movies. Wiki

Independence Day 3 was a planned third film in the Independence Day series and wasn't known to have an official title. It was announced by Roland Emmerich shortly after Independence Day: Resurgence was released in theaters.[1]


Jake Morrison, Dylan Hiller, Patricia Whitmore, and Dr. David Levinson form the next alliance to take down new aliens.

Why It Was Cancelled[]

  1. Independence Day: Resurgence received extremely negative reviews from critics and audiences alike and failed at the box-office.
  2. Sometime afterward, Disney merged with 20th Century Fox before cancelling the unsuccessful franchise.
  3. Dean Devlin decided not to make a third film following the negative reception and poor box office performance of Resurgence. However, Rolland Emmerich recently said that he has an idea for a third film. Despite all of that, there is still a highly unlikely chance there will be a third film. [2]


  • Independence Day 3 was permanently cancelled.
  • The Independence Day franchise stayed a duology.
