Cars 2

Continuity mistake: Tony Trihull appears when Finn McMissile begins chasing Professor Z. It also shows when Tony uses his magnet. When it is used, Finn's equipment are pulled by the magnet, which includes his bullets. Those bullets are black when all of them were going out. However, when they are pulled onto the magnet they are grey.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Mater enters the terminal at the airport, a mark showing that his symbol was completely scraped off is visible on one of his sides, but when he goes through the gate, that mark is no longer there.

Continuity mistake: When Holly and McMissle are convincing Mater to complete the mission, his door panels change between the shots facing the two and then facing Mater.


Continuity mistake: When the cars are zigzagging in the Tokyo track, there is a shot where three specialists are talking about McQueen and they show him on the track in split screens (air and ground shot). In the air shot, he has a red car behind and then a green one following. But in the ground shot, the red car is gone and the green is behind McQueen, even though you can see the red one in the air shot at the same time.


Continuity mistake: During the fight in the bathroom (just before Mater comes out of the stall), we see two grids on the floor. At one point, the orange car drives over one of the grids. But the grid disappears when Mater comes out the stall. (00:28:25)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When Mater is going into the bathroom, all the stalls have red lights. In the next shot of the bathroom, all the lights are green except Mater's.


Continuity mistake: In the scene where Mater and Lightning enter Buckingham Palace, you can see a mountain as you look in the background. But when Finn and Holley enter while Lightning and Mater are moving closer to the Queen, the mountain has now become a tall building.

Continuity mistake: When the other tow truck asks how Holly Shiftwell's grandfather is, you can see that his Ivan symbol has a red background, and then a few minutes later you can see that Mater's Ivan symbol is white, and a few minutes later there is no background at all on Mater's symbol.
