Top Gun: Maverick’s storyline is said to be set under present-day circumstances and will follow the efforts of fighter pilots who struggle to deal with new “drone tech that is making their old style of flying obsolete. ”
Following Cruise’s tweet, #TopGun2 has been trending on Twitter, with fans expressing their delight for the long awaited sequel.

With @TomCruise kicking off filming of #TopGun2 today, I'm reminded of the time that I too got to fly the @BoeingDefense #SuperHornet (well, ride in the back seat at least). Happy to report, I was only 'mildly' ill… pic.twitter.com/SbLrnvSZGH
