While we actually kind of liked Hotel Transylvania, we never thought a sequel was coming… but it is and it’s added a comedy legend to the line-up.
The sequel will be in cinemas on September 25th next year and Clone Wars director Genndy Tartakovsky will return to helm it. But while that’s all very nice, it’s the addition of the great Mel Brooks that really grabbed our attention.
Brooks is no stranger to comedy horror, having directed both 1974’s Young Frankenstein and 1995’s Dracula: Dead and Loving. Here he will voice the ancient vampire Vlad — father of Adam Sandler’s Dracula
The sequel plot reads as this: A family get-together in the follow-up feature brings Vlad to town — along with some secrets and drama — to visit the estranged son he hasn’t seen in years. He turns everybody’s life upside down, from Drac, Mavis and Jonathan to hotel regulars such as Frank (Kevin James), Wayne Werewolf (Steve Buscemi) and Murray the Mummy (Keegan-Michael Key).
So, while we were probably going to see this anyway, there’s certainly another reason to go now…
