After three movies, Hotel Transylvania is ready to come back for one more entry, but this time, Drac is going to be the one who’s a human and his son-in-law Johnny becomes the monster.
Watch the trailer for the new Hotel Transylvania movie down here:
Drac and the pack are back, like you’ve never seen them before in Hotel Transylvania: Transformania. Reunite with your favorite monsters for an all-new adventure that presents Drac with his most terrifying task yet. When Van Helsing’s mysterious invention, the ‘Monsterfication Ray,” goes haywire, Drac and his monster pals are all transformed into humans, and Johnny becomes a monster! In their new mismatched bodies, Drac, stripped of his powers, and an exuberant Johnny, loving life as a monster, must team up and race across the globe to find a cure before it’s too late, and before they drive each other crazy. With help from Mavis and the hilariously human Drac Pack, the heat is on to find a way to switch themselves back before their transformations become permanent.
Though Dracula is the center of the franchise, this movie will not have Adam Sandler reprising the lead role. Instead, the voice of Dracula will be provided by Brian Hull. Other cast members from the previous films like Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez, Molly Shannon, Steve Buscemi, David Spade, and Fran Drescher are set to reprise their roles. Keegan-Michael Key is also coming back to voice Murray after original actor CeeLo Green got arrested on drug charges.
I think it’s also worth noting that this will be the first Hotel Transylvania movie not to have Genndy Tartakovsky in the director’s chair. We don’t know what losing the main star and Tartakovsky is going to do for the franchise, but it looks like new directors Derek Drymon and Jennifer Kluska have the look of the previous films down to a tee.
Catch Hotel Transylvania: Transformania when it comes out on July 23.
