However, while talking to Sky News, Matthew McConaughey (who played the lead character) was very open to the idea. All he is waiting for is a green light from the Director, who, unfortunately, is tight-lipped as of now!

Regardless, in case of any confirmation, we will update you! 

Until then, you can watch the movie again because we are sure you did not catch up on all the easter eggs Christopher Nolan had laid out for you!

Who Can You Expect? (Potential Cast)

The potential cast of Interstellar 2 truly depends on the story running wild at the back of Christopher Nolan’s mind.

What Can You Expect From Interstellar 2?

Again, we are emphasizing: Christopher Nolan has a reputation for stand-alone films. Because of this, we are not too sure about the arrival of Interstellar’s sequel. 

Hence, all we can do is discuss the plot that has been left open or not necessarily touched upon in the previous film. As you know, fans have eagle eyes and catch up on things (or arcs) that even the writer could not see or intend to put out as an easter egg.

With that being said, the following is one arc that eagle-eyed fans have spotted and hoping for the Director to fulfill their desperate yearning:

Cooper and Brand’s Reunion

Cooper and Brand's Reunion in Interstellar 2

Interstellar ended with Joseph Cooper’s much older daughter convincing him to return to his potential lover (Dr. Brand). Now, fans are curious and, to be honest, literally dying for a good romantic plot! 

They cannot help but want the unexplored spark to be channeled in a proper storyline.

Interstellar Explained Like You Are Five

Due to some plant infection, the entire human species suddenly started struggling with food drought: Joseph Cooper (an ex-NASA pilot) had no choice but to be a farmer. 

Then one fine day, Cooper observed an unusual activity in his daughter’s bedroom.

No, it was not your typical “oh, I spotted a boy in my daughter’s bedroom” unusualness. Instead, it had some gravitational aspect to it. 

Of course, since Mr. Cooper had some experience with spacey stuff, he dissected the GPS code and somehow reached a secret NASA place under Prof. Brand. 

He further explained to Cooper how despite NASA being officially canceled, they secretly kept working in hopes of finding a habitable planet so that the human species could be saved. 

So as per Prof. Brand’s instructions, Cooper and three more scientists (including Amelia) left to investigate three planets: To do so, they docked on a big Endurance spaceship. 

wormhole: the connection between two spacetimes

Further, they entered a mysterious wormhole and discovered the Aquaplanet, where they found a dead body. 

Then, another scientist from their team started drowning in a huge tide, and the water somehow filled up their spaceship. Because of this, Cooper and Amelia took longer than intended, and 23 years had passed when they returned to Earth. 

So naturally, everybody had aged organically, including Murph (Cooper’s daughter), who now worked as a scientist alongside Prof. Brand. 

Now, back on Earth, some weird politics is going on, as Prof. Brand has stopped working on his mission to save humanity. All this was discovered when he was on the verge of dying. Now, the only ray of hope for humankind is superman with no cape, aka. Cooper.

He is doing everything in his power to find clues to solve Brand’s gravity equation. Where Murph is helping him through their family house, Cooper is stuck in a 5D tesseract (which shows in-time moments from Murph’s bedroom). 

So both Murph and Cooper’s ghostly figures decode the information, and finally, they succeed. However, due to the time dilation, Cooper barely aged, whereas Murph is nearing death. 

Later, Murph asks him to meet Amelia, who is working on the mission planet and setting up habitable colonies for future humans. Finally, she breathed a sigh of relief when she succeeded.
