Top Gun: Maverick just got even better, with the addition of Jon Hamm, Ed Harris and Lewis Pullman. The three actors have been set to join the cast of the sequel to the iconic original that is in the works at Paramount Pictures. They’re joining Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer, Glen Powell, Jennifer Connelly and Miles Teller. The film, directed by Joseph Kosinski, is slated for release July 12, 2019.

Deadline reports that Teller plays the son of Maverick’s former partner Goose, who died in the 1986 original. The plot has been kept mostly under wraps, but it follows Cruise’s Pete Mitchell, who is now an instructor at the Top Gun school and has decided to take Teller under his wing. The roles for Harris and Hamm are unclear, but the addition of them to the cast adds even more star power to a pretty great looking film.
