Much-awaited ‘Hotel Transylvania: Transformania’, the fourth installment of the animated monster comedy film franchise, after many delays, has finally got its release date i.e. January 14, 2022, and will premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.
Ever since the release of the first film “Hotel Transylvania” in 2012, this has been a big hit among family audiences, and the latest and possibly the final installment of the franchise features the same family of monsters and the adventures surrounding the hotel.
Here’s the trailer for ‘Hotel Transylvania: Transformania’
‘Hotel Transylvania: Transformania’ dives into the relationship between Dracula and his goofy, human son-in-law Johnny (Samberg). As Dracula plans to retire and gift his beloved Hotel Transylvania to his daughter Mavis (Gomez), he changes his mind at the last minute -worried that Johnny will ruin what he has built. Disappointed that Dracula still doesn’t embrace Johnny as a member of his family, Johnny seeks help from Van Helsing (from the third film) and successfully turns himself into a monster. In the wake of transforming himself, however, Johnny changes Dracula and his band of monster side-kicks –Blobby, Frankenstein, Mummy, Wayne, and the Invisible Man – into humans. Dracula and Johnny set out together to find a secret crystal that will help turn them back accordingly while learning to rely on and appreciate each other along the way.
Unlike the previous three films that were directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, ‘Hotel Transylvania: Transformania’ is directed by Jennifer Kluska and Derek Drymon, although the new film is co-written by Tartakovsky, Amos Vernon, Nunzio Randazzo.
While Adam Sandler is no longer voicing Count Dracula, as he did in the earlier three films, the voice cast of ‘Hotel Transylvania: Transformania’ include: Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez, Kathryn Hahn, Jim Gaffigan, Steve Buscemi, Molly Shannon, David Spade, Keegan-Michael Key, Brian Hull, Fran Drescher, Brad Abrell, and Asher Blinkoff.
Nevertheless, the story of the film brings all the beloved Hotel Transylvania characters together for a funny, heartfelt journey with a positive message for the whole family.
