The editing process for Top Gun: Maverick's first dog fight scene took a year.
Top Gun: Maverick's scene was originally 15 minutes and was shortened to 4 minutes and 50 seconds.
The film has been a major success, breaking a record for Paramount and becoming the highest-grossing film of the year.
There have been hints at the possibility of a third Top Gun film.
Tom Cruise was initially hesitant to return as Maverick but was convinced by the story of reconciling with his friend's son.
The film is currently streaming on Paramount+.
It also became the most-watched movie to debut domestically on Paramount+.
The editor wanted the dog fight scene to be "exciting and dynamic."
The film's director has suggested that Maverick has more adventures to come.
