Not only was the original film released in 1986—meaning that this sequel comes a whopping 36 years after the first film—but it was also originally supposed to hit the big screen in July of 2019!
Due to the many complex flight sequences, production initially postponed its theatrical release date by a year—announcing that the new date would be June 2020.
However, thanks to the pandemic, scheduling delays with star Tom Cruise and other reasons, Top Gun: Maverick was delayed three more times until the final, official date was announced: May 27, 2022!
