Sony Pictures Animation has released two official photos from the upcoming genre comedy Hotel Transylvania, which is scheduled for release September 21. While we've seen some concept art illustrations in the past, today we finally have an official look at the cast, including Dracula (Adam Sandler), Frank(enstein) (Kevin James), Invisible Man (David Spade), Wayne (Steve Buscemi), Wanda (Molly Shannon), Mavis (Selena Gomez) and Murray the Mummy (Cee-Lo). You can click on that photo, plus another with Dracula and Johnny (Andy Samberg), to access our Hotel Transylvania gallery. You can also read on for more information on this animated tale.
"It's refreshing to go back to the beginning of Dracula - and then have Adam Sandler put his spin on it. There will be no sparkling skin. But there are a lot of jokes."
The story centers on a resort, which is basically a refuge for all these famous monsters, where no human is allowed, until Andy Samberg's Johnny stumbles in by accident, and ends up falling for Dracula's daughter, Mavis.
"The motto of Hotel Transylvania is that it has been human-free since 1898. This is a place that all his friends can come without being persecuted by humans. They are just trying to live their own lives."
The director also encouraged the actors to record their voiceover sessions together, which added a unique element to the production.
"I said we need that chemistry to show these monsters are a family. When those guys were together in a room, it was just an explosion of energy."
