Hotel Transylvania (2012)

Postby Ballboi » Wed Sep 07, 2011 8:28 pm

This thread is about Sony's upcoming animated film Hotel Transylvania which comes out September 21st, 2012. I'm not too sure what to think about this film. It's been in development for quite sometime from Sony and it's going to be directed by Gennndy Tartakovsky who created Dexter's Lab. I mean, this film could decent or it could be horrible.

There are rumors about Genndy doing this to help fund his Samurai Jack film project. While I think he could be doing this to buy back the rights to his canceled off early show Sym Bionic titan(which was good btw!). Although I just hope to god that this isn't your average cut and paste CG feature that makes you want to puke your guts out. I remember hearing at one point that David Fiess(Cow and Chicken) was one of the directors of this film.

That's weird. I thought that David Spade was going to play Quasimodo. Oh well, might just be a wikipedia edit. Anyway, I like the idea for this and hopefully it'll be a great film.

Hotel Transylvania looks interesting along the lines of personal dark-horse favorite Igor. Speaking of which, it looks like Steve Buscemi and Molly Shannon play a werewolf couple, and both actors were in Igor. Some of that wacky monster energy would be welcome in Hotel Transylvania. Also, it's interesting that almost all the voice actors in HT have done characters in animated films.

Per various sources, Miley Cyrus is out, and Selena Gomez is in as Dracula's daughter Mavis:

It's still hard to imagine how this movie is going to be released in 2012. We shall see!

Mmmm, interesting. I was actually quite fond of Igor myself. :)
The one whose every other post should probably more or less end with 'TL: DR'.

Here's a poster for Hotel Transylvania, with more character designs shown (at limited size):

It's still hard to see how this movie is going to meet a September 2012 release date, based on the limited amount of info available.

Looks like it can be great movie, if it's anything like Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. The voice cast seems pretty good, especially now that they have Selena playing Mavis instead. I'm getting a bit of a Mad Monster Party/Monster High/ Nightmare Before Christmas vibe from the summaries, which should be a good sign, right? 8D The relationship between Count Dracula and Mavis should be interesting to see.
