Because of that, Ashima and all of Thomas' friends make Thomas feel even prouder than he was before. But, Diesel makes a plan to make Thomas feel silly by giving him no coal and water. But, his plan backfires when he destroys Percy's new trucks which makes Percy feel very upset. So, Thomas goes on a mission to find something better than Percy's new trucks.

  • The scene in where Po uses her karate moves to hit the giant rock, she hits it very hard and succeeds with the rocks blocking the cave exit. But, in reality, she wouldn't be able to do it.
  • The Other Side by Jason Derulo is shown in the credits when it actually wasn't heard in the film. The issue was corrected in the bonus features.
  • A faint crack is seen when the scene cuts to the MerseyGirls being sad.
