Sony Pictures Animation troubled production of the 3D animated Hotel Transylvania has something to show for the nearly 10 years in production it has seen. A first trailer. A first look at Adam Sandler’s Dracula as he parades around his stylish resort for overworked monsters.
Hotel Transylvania is the story of Dracula’s lavish five-stake resort, where monsters and their families can live it up, free from meddling from the human world. But here’s a little-known fact about Dracula: he is not only the Prince of Darkness; he is also a dad.
Currently helmed by Genndy Tartakovsky of Samurai Jack fame, the film has been directed at various times by Anthony Stacchi, David Feiss and Jill Culton. The film has also seen the comings and goings of Miley Cyrus as the voice of Mavis.
The film is produced by Michelle Murdocca, Amy Jupiter, Albie Hecht, and Robert Simonds for Sony Pictures Animation. The film will be released in 3D in selected theaters on September 21, 2012.
