Twenty years have passed since Nazis from the Moon invaded Earth. Following a nuclear attack in Washington, D.C., the President of the United States is evacuated to Antarctica and enters the "Hollow Earth"—a vast subterranean civilization. There, she rendezvous with Adolf Hitler and his pet Tyrannosaurus "Blondi" and begin their plot for global domination. It also turns out that the President, Jesus Christ, Hitler, and Vladimir Putin are secretly of a reptilian humanoid race.
Over 20 years after the nuclear war that had been triggered by the invasion of the Moon Nazis, Earth has become an inhospitable place. The last survivors have rallied together on the former Nazi moon base, with many refugees from Earth among them. Over the years a large human colony has formed, with its own fascist government and religions, including the Jobists, a cult that formed around the teachings of Steve Jobs and their leader (Tom Green).
But the aging base is deteriorating and due to the damage the moon received in the nuclear war, its time is running out. Obi Washington (Lara Rossi), the daughter of Renate Richter (Julia Dietze) and James Washington, finds out that there may be other survivors hidden in an underground city at the center of the earth with the means to save the base and decides to travel to earth to seek help.
But the survivors she and a ragtag band of explorers find at the center of the earth are not even human—they stumble upon a prehuman world of dinosaurs ruled by the Vril, a race of reptilians led by Adolf Hitler in his true reptilian form among other former human rulers, all of whom were Reptilians under their human skins all along. They had been controlling human governments for hundreds of years, waiting for the right moment to strike against the human surface dwellers to ensure the annihilation of the entire human race and secure the reptilian dominance over the planet.Julia Dietze as Renate Richter

On 20 May 2012, Tero Kaukomaa, producer of the first film, announced that there were plans for a prequel and a sequel but refused to disclose details. In May 2013, Vuorensola announced that Iron Sky will have a sequel titled Iron Sky The Coming Race. He also mentioned that unlike the first film, this installment will be completely funded by fans via Indiegogo, with an estimated budget of US$15 million. A promo video was shot for the 2014 Cannes Film Festival and the final draft of the script is scheduled to be published by the end of 2014. Filming is expected to begin in 2015. In July 2013, Vuorensola revealed Croatia as one of the proposed shooting locations. In February 2014, Dalan Musson signed in to write the screenplay. The Finnish Film Foundation and Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg have come on board to finance the US$13 million project. On November 5, 2014, Energia Productions launched another crowdfunding campaign to raise US$500,000 before December 20. At the closing of the campaign on January 5, contributors pledged a grand total of US$560,949.
On 22 November 2014, Lloyd Kaufman of Troma Entertainment confirmed having a cameo role in the film.
On 18 September 2015, Vuorensola announced that filming will commence at AED Studios in Belgium.
In October 2016 Timo Vuorensola launched a new crowdfunding campaign to fund special effects for out-of-budget scenes that were in danger of being left out from the final cut of the movie. The scenes included the deaths of reptilian Margaret Thatcher and Pope Urban II.
On 6 November 2014, the official Iron Sky YouTube channel published the film's first teaser trailer. On 1 December, two more teasers were released, the first featuring Kari Ketonen as Vladimir Putin and the second featuring Jukka Hilden as Jesus Christ.
Like its predecessor, the movie ironically refers to several motifs of post-war Esoteric Nazism, such as the Hollow Earth theory. The movie's title is most likely a reference to Edward Bulwer-Lytton's novel The Coming Race (1871) that is commonly regarded as the origin of the so-called Vril myth. The film teaser features the Vril symbol that was designed by the Tempelhofgesellschaft in the 1990s.
