The Top Gun sequel has found Goose’s son.

Miles Teller has beaten out Nicholas Hoult and Glen Powell for the coveted role of Goose’s son in Top Gun: Maverick, currently in production. The character of Goose was played by Anthony Edwards, who met a tragic fate in the original 1986 film. The son, who was very young, was seen in a scene in the film when Maverick visits Goose’s home with Meg Ryan playing Goose’s wife.

Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer return from the 1986 film as the titular Maverick and his “frenemy” Iceman under the direction of Joseph Kosinski.

Production is underway for a 2019 release date.
