Hollywood can't stop rebooting its popular franchises, no matter how long ago a recognizable character first graced the silver screen. In 1986, for instance, Maverick and Goose took to the skies in the seminal fighter-pilot movie Top Gun. Now, however, it seems a 31-years-older Tom Cruise is getting back in the cockpit and preparing for the next installment in the Top Gun franchise. On Thursday, May 31, the actor sent out a tweet which sent a ripple of excitement through the always-thriving Top Gun fandom...



Cruise was obviously teasing the first half of the film's iconic line, "I feel the need...the need for speed." Reports indicate that the sequel will follow fighter pilots as they "grapple with drone tech that is making their old style of flying obsolete."

On Twitter, fans were NOT complaining.




Maverick's return is well overdue!




R.I.P. Goose...




Cruise has even hinted the new movie might feature YET ANOTHER volleyball scene. That seems a tad unnecessary when the first one is literally seared into our minds for all eternity.


Even the most skeptical fans are letting themselves enjoy the moment!




Does the world need a Top Gun sequel? Do yourself a favor and just don't think about that.



Top Gun: Maverick is currently aiming for a premiere in July 2019!
