Did you notice? Maverick’s «new» love in «Top Gun 2» was already an important topic in the original cult film — cinema news

Paramount Pictures

The fact that Maverick ( Tom Cruise ) and Penny ( Jennifer Connelly ) already have a history before “ Top Gun 2: Maverick ” becomes more than clear in the film. While she hasn’t been running the bar near the Pilot Base for that long, it’s quickly apparent that the two have been dating before. But this relationship did not end well. Penny’s daughter Amelia ( Lyliana Wray ) then makes it clear to the pilot, but this time please don’t break her mother’s heart.

But what even some die-hard fans of the original may have overlooked: This Penny was already a topic in » Top Gun «. Maverick meets Charlie ( Kelly McGillis ) there, but an old love is addressed several times in the first part.

For example, his superior Stinger ( James Tolkan ) scolds him for having an affair with an admiral’s daughter. And Carole ( Meg Ryan ), the wife of his best friend Goose ( Anthony Edwards ), mentions this relationship and even mentions a name: Penny Benjamin!

Jennifer Connelly’s Penny is the Admiral’s daughter from ‘Top Gun’

And it really is the same penny, as Top Gun: Maverick makes clear twice. This is teased in the film by mentioning that this Penny is also an admiral’s daughter. And to avoid any misunderstandings, she is then really identified as Penny Benjamin.

Director Joseph Kosinski also confirmed that it’s the same character. Incorporating Penny gave him a chance to introduce a character that hasn’t been seen before, but still make a reference to the old film.

On the other hand, there was never a plan to bring Kelly McGillis back as Charlie. While it was important to Kosinski to always address the old film, he wanted to work with fresh stories and faces. There’s also a connection to Maverick’s old wingman Goose via a new character: his son, Rooster ( Miles Teller ). However, it was decided not to bring Meg Ryan back as a mother.

According to his own statement, Kosinksi only fought for one returnee alongside Tom Cruise: Val Kilmer . You can currently see in the cinema how the star managed to be incorporated into the sequel despite his throat cancer, which has led to the greatest possible withdrawal from the public eye.
