To accompany Tom Cruise in this new opus of Top Gun, a top-flight cast: Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Ed Harris and Val Kilmer. Directed by Joseph Kolinski, this sequel features a Maverick at the end of his career but still hungry for a thrill. He is in charge of forming a team of young pilots for a secret mission. On this occasion, he takes under his wing the son of his late friend Goose. A special mission that takes him back to new dizzying adventures.

The shooting of the last born of the saga Impossible mission was scheduled to begin in Italy in February 2020. Logically postponed to a later date given the outbreak of the epidemic on that date, filming began last fall and continued during the summer of 2021.
