Cruise played fighter pilot Pete “Maverick” Mitchell in the original 1986 action-drama. After months of speculation, the actor finally confirmed last month that he would be reprising his role.

“I’m going to start filming it probably in the next year. It’s happening. It’s definitely happening,” he told Australian morning show Sunrise at the time. Earlier this week, he also announced the movie title.
