After more than 30 years, Navy’s top aviator Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Tom Cruise) returns to flight school to train Top Gun graduates for a specialized mission.

Jerry Bruckheimer discusses Top Gun: Maverick

After 34 years Tom Cruise returns as maverick. This is a competition film about family, friendship and sacrifice. It’s a love letter to aviation. We’re going to show you what it’s really like to be a Top Gun pilot. 

It’s amazing what you see in the cockpit. What an audience is going to experience.

An aviation film like this has never been done and chances are it will never be done again.

Tom Cruise discusses shooting Top Gun: Maverick

You just can’t create this kind of experience unless you shoot it live. In order for us to accomplish this we have the greatest fighter pilots in the world working with us

Miles “Rooster” Teller discusses being in these jets

Putting us up in these jets it’s very serious. That’s why everybody thought would be impossible. I think when Tom hears that something’s impossible or can’t be done that’s when he gets to work.

Director Joseph Kosinski discusses the brand new camera system

We’re working with a brand new camera system that allows us to put 6 IMAX quality cameras inside the cockpit with the actors.

Flying one of these fighter jets is an absolute thrill ride. We want to make sure that the audience has the same experience
