What is the plot of Top Gun 2?
Top Gun 2 will be set in the modern day as the pilots contend with drone warfare and fighter jets.
The sequel will be a sort of reverse of the original with Maverick returning as an instructor who has to contend with a cocky female pilot called Penny Benjamin.
The film will also feature the grown up son of Goose (Riot FKA Wrigley) who is set to clash with Maverick.
Speaking to Access Hollywood about the project in 2017, Tom said: “Aviators are back, the need for speed. We’re going to have big, fast machines."
He added: “It’s going to be a competition film, like the first one…but a progression for Maverick."
What happened in the original Top Gun movie?

He clashes with fellow pilot Iceman (Val Kilmer) and falls in love with his female flight instructor Charlie Blackwood (Kelly McGillis).
Sadly his co-pilot Goose dies after ejecting from his plane and Maverick becomes burdened with guilt.
