The "Top Gun: Maverick" Cast Take Us Behind the Scenes

"Top Gun: Maverick" has people of all ages enthralled with the sequel to the classic '80s action film. It's already on its way to becoming one of the biggest films of the year as its international box office numbers soar past $557.2 million, according to Deadline.

Almost 40 years after Tom Cruise's Pete "Maverick" Mitchell joined the TOPGUN flight school, audiences are still captivated by his character's journey. And now there's a whole new generation of Navy pilots — played by Glen Powell, Jay Ellis, Miles Teller, Monica Barbaro, Greg Tarzan Davis, Lewis Pullman, and Danny Ramirez — taking the Top Gun franchise by storm!

The intense, high-flying sequel movie wasn't easy to make. In fact, it took a team of expert pilots to get all the cool aerial stunts to look real enough for the film. But the "Top Gun: Maverick" cast made them look like a breeze from all the fun behind-the-scenes footage they've posted on social media.

Between flying airplanes and their intense training regimens, it's safe to say this new set of novice pilots have rightfully earned their wings. Ahead, check out all the cool photos and videos of the "Top Gun: Maverick" cast on and off set.
