An action-packed new trailer for Top Gun: Maverick has arrived and it has us getting even more nostalgic and excited for the sequel than we were already. Watch it above.
In the movie, Tom Cruise reprises his role as Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, who is ordered to return to the Navy to train a fresh cohort of Top Gun graduates. Among them is Bradley “Rooster” Bradshaw (played by Miles Teller), the son of his late friend Goose. As in the 1986 original, the stakes are extremely high, and Maverick continues his incautious attitude to aviation, and his no-helmet approach to motorcycling. Based on the new footage, it looks like the sequel retains a lot of the adrenaline-pumping action we’ve come to expect from the franchise.
See how Twitter is reacting to the new trailer below.
After 34 years, fans are feeling VERY nostalgic
And hyped for Goose’s son to take to the sky
Let’s just hope he makes it out alive
And that Tom Cruise doesn’t do something weird in the meantime
The first trailer premiered at San Diego Comic-Con in November. On opening day, Tom Cruise made a surprise appearance to tout an even more surprising announcement — after 34 years, the iconic adrenaline-pumping drama Top Gun is back with a sequel. Watch it here.
Top Gun: Maveric is due out next summer on June 26, 2020.
