It’s official – Top Gun 2 has entered production.

And you thought it would never happen!

Yeah, me too.

Taking to twitter to announce the start of production on the oft-talked about sequel, Cruise posted an image with the tag ‘feel the need’ – a reference to the quote: “I feel the need – the need for speed!”

The image was accompanied by a caption which simply said: “#Day1”.

Top Gun 2

Currently running under the title of Top Gun: Maverick, the sequel to 1986’s Top Gun is scheduled for release in July 2019.

Excited? Indifferent?

How about a Kenny Loggins video to make you feel nostalgic…
