Mattel has been named the global toy partner for Paramount Pictures’ Top Gun franchise, including both the original Top Gun and next summer’s Top Gun: Maverick. 

The company has rights to multiple categories, including die-cast vehicles and aircrafts, play sets, games, and other toys. The full line will be available globally, ahead of the sequel’s U.S. release next June.

“We are thrilled to bring Top Gun to life for both kids and their parents who undoubtedly fell in love with the franchise over thirty years ago,” says Janet Hsu, chief franchise management officer of Mattel. “Our design-led approach has allowed us to recreate the high-octane action from the movie with a line of toys that will impress fans of all ages.”
