The studio cites Top Gun 2: Maverick has “extensive visual effects work and complicated flight scenes” as the reasoning for the 11-month delay of the film.

The Wrap reports:

Top Gun 2 delay comes a week after it was announced that Jon Hamm and Ed Harris had been added to the cast. It isn’t clear who Hamm and Harris will be playing in the sequel. They do bring in some pretty big star power to a movie.  Charles Parnell, Jay Ellis, Bashir Salahuddin, Danny Ramirez, and Monica Barbaro also recently joined the sequel. 

TP2 took a breather from filming so that Tom Cruise could join the promotional campaign for Mission: Impossible 6.

Development for Top Gun 2 started as far back as 2010.

Joseph Kosinski is now the director’s seat, scripted by Eric Warren Singer, Peter Craig, and Justin Marks.
Along with Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer is also returning for Top Gun 2, and fans are ecstatic.
