Following the Halloween day reveal of the first concept art to the upcoming Sony Pictures Animation project, Hotel Transylvania, comes word via EW that Miley Cyrus has joined the ensemble voice cast. She’ll be playing Mavis, the daughter of Adam Sandler’s Dracula.
Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky (“Samurai Jack,” “Dexter’s Laboratory”), the film is officially described as follows:
Welcome to the Hotel Transylvania, Dracula’s (Sandler) 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. Over-protective of his teenage daughter, Mavis, Dracula 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 stumbles on the hotel and takes a shine to Mavis.
The rest of the cast includes David Koechner as Quasimodo, David Spade as Griffin the invisible man, Kevin James as Frank aka Frankenstein, Fran Drescher as his bride Eunice, Steve Buscemi and Molly Shannon as married werewolves Wayne and Wanda, Cee Lo Green as Murray the mummy, and Andy Samberg as Jonathan, a regular guy .
Hotel Transylvania is planning a September 21, 2012 release.
