Get your bags packed and join your favorite Monster family for the vacation of a lifetime. Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation allows Drac’s Pack to step outside the hotel and visit fun, exotic locations on their monster cruise. The tables have turned now allowing Mavis to be in charge of the destination leaving Drac to focus on his “Zing”
In Sony Pictures Animation’s Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, join our favorite monster family as they embark on a vacation on a luxury monster cruise ship so Drac can take a summer vacation from providing everyone else’s vacation at the hotel. It’s smooth sailing for Drac’s Pack as the monsters indulge in all of the shipboard fun the cruise has to offer, from monster volleyball to exotic excursions, and catching up on their moon tans. But the dream vacation turns into a nightmare when Mavis realizes Drac has fallen for the mysterious captain of the ship, Ericka, who hides a dangerous secret that could destroy all of monsterkind.
We all know that vacations can be a little different form we have imagined and we all go with the flow and take it in stride. I enjoyed seeing the previews of some scenes from the movie and I know you will enjoy this 3rd installment of the Hotel Transylvania series. Genndy Tartakovsky co-writer/ director was on hand at Sony Pictures to give us a little insight on why he decided to join the team for a second go around.
Genndy’s inspiration for this film came from his real-life experience. Everyone needs a vacation and he recently joined his family and in-laws on a family cruise. With that inspiration, he thought” What would happen if he put Drac’s Pack in that situation?”
The relationship opens up a whole new world for each of the characters, Genndy says. “There’s even more visual humor, more fun than the first two films,” he says. “It’s not just a cruise- it’s an adventure.
What makes Genndy films different from others is that he is always pushing the envelope most CG animated films try to keep the character looking like a base model- treating the character rig like a puppet – however, Genndy encourages his animators to bring and exaggerated vision with sight gags and funny expressions. The characters pliable, with a range of emotions from the cartoony to the subtly and humanistic.
I have my boarding pass ready and can’t wait to see the movie when it hits theaters on Friday, July 13th. A coincidence I think not.
Look how cute these Blobby cupcakes are! Who would have thought that some green icing swirled on top with edible eyes would be so easy to make and the hit at any Transylvania Party to kick off the release of the movie this summer?
Here I am with the whole gang, Mavis (Selena Gomez), Drac (Adam Sandler), and Introducing Ericka (Kathryn Hahn)
I couldn’t ressit a selfie with Mavis, We both have such great smiles.
