HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA, the newest animated feature from Columbia Pictures and Sony Pictures Animation, brings to the screen a high flying, magical romantic comedy from Director Genndy Tartakovsky.

Executive Produced by Adam Sandler and Robert Smigel HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA was produced by Michelle Murdocca and written by Smigel and Peter Baynham.                                                                                                                                                                                 HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA weaves a storyline that includes an overprotective father, a beautiful daughter, the crazy extended family, an annual tradition, relatives from the deep lagoon, including the ones unseen, a hidden hotel in a haunted castle and combines them to present a lethal dose of fabulous 3-D fun and out of this world fantasy.

Adam Sandler brings to life the highly watchful Dracula who for 118 years has guarded his lovely Mavis, voiced by Selena Gomez from the evils and horrible possibilities the world may hold until finally he agrees to let her go to experience life . . . well almost. After a series of escapades including a fake ambush disenchanted Mavis settles for star gazing and disappointed dreams.

Finally, as it is her 118th Birthday, her party planning dad, “Drac,” has designed a bash that put the past 118 to shame! Attended by all the relatives and extended family this party has an unexpected surprise guest, backpacking, globetrotting trekker, Jonathan, voiced by Andy Sandberg.

As Frankenstein, voiced by Kevin James, his wife Eunice, voiced by Fran Drescher, Wayne Werewolf, Steve Buscemi, and his wife Wanda, Molly Shannon and also David Spade as, Griffin the Invisible Man and rounding out the relatives, CeeLo Green as, Murray the Mummy all convene on HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA the antics, excitement and unusual happenings begin to go haywire as “Johnny Stein” steps in and changes everything. Jon Lovitz shows up as the human sniffing chef Quasimodo.

Filmed in Stereoscopic 3-D, HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA is amazingly crisp with eye popping sharp colors. It adds a look of Saturday morning cartoons creating an almost effortless feel.  As animation continues to evolve, the quality of 3-D also continues to develop and improve with greater depth, razor-sharp distinction, and crystal clear precision. The animators of HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA, and all animators, work tirelessly on perfecting molds, for each character, that accompanying each movement, motion and emotion.

The painstaking process has dynamic results! The entire film is exceptional, in voice and animation, and includes many outstanding wonderfully animated and creative scenes including the Bingo game with mini skulls as the Bingo numbers, the flying table placement, and the Dance Party! HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA's a winner!

HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA brings together an all star comedic cast that includes a who’s who of Saturday Night Alumni and includes some solid rocking music that could conjure spirits back from the dead.  Just in time for the Halloween’s ghouls, goblins and spook fests HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA is fun for all ages and a howling good time!

HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA opens everywhere September 28, 2012.,
