The Hotel Transylvania franchise is returning to theaters with a brand new installment titled Hotel Transylvania: Transformania. The new subtitle is a play on words for the plot which will see the monster Dracula and his fellow monster friends turned into humans. Likewise, the human character Johnny will end up becoming a monster! It’s definitely going to paint an all-new perspective on these characters most of us have come to know pretty well since the first Hotel Transylvania film was released. Now, as you can see below, the first official trailer for Hotel Transylvania: Transformania is now available.
It certainly seems as though this will be a massive change on the familiar franchise, so hopefully the new formula works out. But judging by the new Hotel Transylvania: Transformania trailer, it will more than likely live up to the past successes of the franchise.
In the new Sony film…
“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.”
The new animated comedy monster movie was directed by Jennifer Kluska and Derek Drymon. It was written by Amos Vernon & Nunzio Randazzo and Genndy Tartakovsky, based on a story by Tartakovsky.
The cast for the film includes Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez, Kathryn Hahn, Keegan-Michael Key, Steve Buscemi, David Spade, Brian Hull, Asher Blinkoff, Brad Abrell, Fran Drescher, Jim Gaffigan, and Molly Shannon.
Audiences can see Hotel Transylvania: Transformania in theaters on July 23.
