What is the film Top Gun: Maverick about?
The film is about a guy named Pete Mitchell, who went by the name “Maverick” in the first movie. He is the best fighter pilot in the Navy and he’s known for being innovative in his flying skills. He’s been suspended from flying after an incident with a civilian jet, which led him to pursue a new career as an instructor at the Top Gun Naval School. According to Kosinski, “the idea of Maverick being surrounded by (young pilots) was like putting a shark in with blood.” Maverick becomes re-energized after he’s recruited to help train new pilots and be on a team again. He is paired with a female pilot, who has skills that no one else has. The film follows the two of them in their journey to get past the things that have taken them out of the game.
