Story of Top Gun: Maverick (2021) Movie:

Top Gun: Maverick is a sequel to the 1980’s iconic film Top Gun. The film reveals the story of 30 years after the original film. The first film is about the lives of the pilot of Top Gun. Navy Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor school is known as Top Gun. This school opened in 1969. The first film showed the journey of Maverick through the rigorous program. His pilot character was in the center of this film. Maverick is Pete Mitchell’s code name. He was a young pilot who got himself admitted to Top Gun. There he had to face hard competition to become the best of the best. He met with Charlie, the flying school’s curvaceous astrophysics instructor and Maverick learned a lot of life lessons from her. He got involved in a reckless competition with his fellow mate ‘Iceman’. Despite being hunted by his father’s death, he tried his best to win the ‘Top Gun Trophy’. 

The plot of the story is still under wrap. But the movie is filming in San Diego. So, it is certain that we will again see Maverick at the Top Gun academy in Miramar. The second film is set after thirty years of the first film. At the end of the first movie, we saw Pete Mitchell ‘Maverick’ chose to be an instructor in Top Gun and he wants to stay there. He is escaping his promotion just to be in the Top Gun. There, he will train some students to make them ready for a special mission. Meanwhile, he will come across Bradley Bradshaw. He is the son of his best friend, Goose who is now dead. Maverick never got over his friends’ death. In the first movie, astrophysicist and civilian Top Gun instructor, Charlotte “Charlie” Blackwood (Kelly McGillis) was the love interest of Maverick. But it seems like Top Gun: Maverick will introduce us to a new lover of Maverick. She is a single mom who owns a bar near the base.
