Miley Cyrus has been hired to join the all-star cast of Sony Picture Animation’s Hotel Transylvania as Dracula’s teenage daughter Mavis.
At the Hotel Transylvania, Dracula’s lavish five-stake resort, monsters and their families can live it up, free from meddling from the human world.
Overprotective of his daughter, Dracula (voiced by Adam Sandler) fabricates tales of elaborate dangers to dissuade her adventurous spirit. As a haven for Mavis, he opens the Hotel Transylvania, where his daughter and some of the world’s most famous monsters — Frankenstein and his bride, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, a family of werewolves, and more — can kick back in safety and peace. For Drac, catering to all of these legendary monsters is no problem — but his world could come crashing down when one ordinary guy (voiced by Andy Samberg) stumbles on the hotel and takes a shine to Mavis.
Hotel Transylvania is scheduled for release September 21, 2012.
Cyrus’ best-known voice role is that of Penny, the title character’s owner and co-star, in the 2008 Disney feature film Bolt. She was also Yatta (Mudka’s Meat Hut Waitress) in the Disney series The Emperor’s New School. In Disney’s The Replacements, she was Celebrity Starr in the 2007 episode “The Frog Prince.”
