Present at the Fair were Emily Mortimer (voice of Holley Shiftwell) and Sir Michael Caine (voice of Finn McMissile). Director John Lasseter was unable to make it to the event this year, however, he sent a taped message, which was screened there so that everyone could hear what he had to say.
Mr. Lasseter claims that Cars 2 is "not a parody of a spy movie. It is a spy movie."
Both Mrs. Mortimer and Sir Caine came up onto the stage for a talk. Emily Mortimer talked about her experience of working with Pixar, and Michael Caine told the audience how he just loved the name Finn McMissile the moment he heard it.

Not only were these miniature versions of the characters revealed, but also, a life-size replica of the British spy Finn McMissile was shown off at the Toy Fair! It is said to tour the US this year, along with the replicas of Lightning McQueen and Tow Mater.
