Well, look at that. There’s another Hotel Transylvania movie. Oh, and this one has a twist. All the monsters become human, and Johnny, the human, becomes a monster. Hijinks and whatnot. Hurray.
Hotel Transylvania: Transformania may be signaling the end for the franchise as feature-length films. Why do I think that? Because Adam Sandler is missing from this one. The first film in the series was enjoyable, mainly because of Sandler’s Drac. Oh, and the endless buffet of classic horror movie tropes helped a lot.
We don’t hear too much of Drac’s new voice in this trailer, but the difference is noticeable. Check it out:
The rest of the cast is there, but Dracula has been the glue that holds the increasingly threadbare plots together. Without him, what’s left?
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.
Hotel Transylvania: Transformania is directed by Jennifer Kluska (DC Super Hero Girls) and Derek Drymon (CatDog). Amos Vernon, Nunzio Randazzo, and Genndy Tartakovsky are listed as the screenwriters of this third sequel.
Brian Hull (Google Translate Sings) will be taking over the voice of Dracula. He will be joined by several returning cast members: 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.
