When asked about the plans, the star of the original movie said “It’s true” several times, and said shooting would probably begin in the next year.
“It’s happening. It is definitely happening,” Cruise said. “You’re the first people I’ve said this to.”
Ever since the announcement went viral on Twitter, users everywhere have shared their opinion about the new movie. While many individuals were excited, others felt the sequel comes too late and is unnecessary.

So is Hollywood completely out of ideas to the point where only reboots are an option? #TopGun2— DUDEBROS VA (@DudeBrosVA) May 24, 2017
Does the world really need a Top Gun 2? Can't we just get the Kenny Loggins soundtrack and call it a day?— Stephen Scaffidi (@WTMJSteve) May 24, 2017
Most of the details of the film remain unclear, since original director Tony Scott passed away in 2012. That hasn’t stopped the internet from hypothesizing what will happen. Will Maverick return to the Navy and fight Russians? Or will he battle rude United Airlines flight attendants?

Everyone can agree drones will definitely play a role in Top Gun 2. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer told HuffPost in 2014 he plans to pit Tom Cruise against drones.
“The concept is, basically, are the pilots obsolete because of drones,” Bruckheimer said. “Cruise is going to show them that they’re not obsolete. They’re here to stay.”
Until filming begins, it looks like Cruise is keeping busy. His newest film, The Mummy, hits theaters June 9. Cruise’s upcoming films also include Luna Park, American Made, and Mission: Impossible 6.
