‘Hotel Transylvania’ Getting Sequel

Hotel Transylvania
Sony Pictures Animation

This fall, there were three horror-themed animated films for children, and the big winner was ‘Hotel Transylvania.’ It’s made nearly $140 Million domestically (and over $250 Million worldwide), compared to ‘Paranorman‘s $55 Million ($95 Million worldwide) and ‘Frankenweenie‘s $33 Million (currently $58 Million worldwide). So it should be no surprise that Sony Pictures Animation is moving forward with a ‘Hotel Transylvania 2.’

This comes from The Hollywood Reporter, who note that the first film’s director, Genndy Tartakovsky, has moved on to his version of ‘Popeye‘ which will hit screens September 26, 2014, while ‘Hotel Transylvania 2′ is scheduled for September 25, 2015, or – as it’s become known – the year of ‘Star Wars – Episode 7,’ Justice League‘ and ‘The Avengers 2.’ This also points out how studios become superstitious about release dates, as the studio also has ‘Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2′ scheduled for – you guessed it September 27, 2013, so they’ve got animated films on the same weekend for four years running.

It’s unknown who’s coming back, though with animation, it’s likely that no one will turn down a payday for what usually amounts to days worth of work, so don’t be surprised if Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg and Selena Gomez all return. As the studio likely has no script or other talent involved, we’ll sure hear more about this project shortly as the pieces come together.
