This is agent Leeland Turbo. I have a flash transmission for agent Finn McMissile. Finn, my cover's been compromised. Everything's gone pear-shaped. You won't believe what I've found out here. This is bigger than anything we've ever seen. And no one even knows it exists. Finn, I need backup. But don't call the cavalry, it could blow the operation. And be careful! It's not safe out here!

The theatrical release has the Pixar logo as a "25th Anniversary" variant. When the lamp looks at us, the text fades out. Then, the rest of the logo fades out. When it does that, the text "CELEBRATING" fades in. The text "25 YEARS" fades in also. The text "25" is bigger than usual, and the text "YEARS" is below "25". The text "CELEBRATING" fades out. The text "25 YEARS" fades out. The text "CELEBRATING 25 YEARS" is similar to the text "CELEBRATING 75 YEARS" in the 75th Anniversary of the 20th Century Fox logo. Sadly, only theatrical releases used this logo, while DVDs and TV airings used the standard logo instead. See more »
I know I'm WAY late on this by over a year. Overall I liked it. Loved a lot of the new characters, especially Finn McMissile and the arrogant Italian car guy (whatever his name was). Liked Raoue Carole as well. I just had two major pet peeves with it: it focused on Mater. Mater already had his own little spin-off of "Mater's Tall Tales" which I love. A movie centered on him just didn't do it for me. Had it been on Lightning (like the first one) or any other character I would have been okay. It may have to do with the fact that I'm no Mater fan. My second beef was Doc Hudson wasn't in it. I know why, I understand wanting to honor Paul Newman (whom I adored), hate to sound callous, but the show goes on. If he ended up with a different voice then so be it. Better yet, he could have been in it for a few seconds, and just not say anything at all. Fillmore's voice actor passed and he was still in it so to me there was no excuse not to have Doc in it. My two cents, of course.
