A Preview of Sony Pictures Animation's Hotel Transylvania
June 26, 2012
There's an interesting and somewhat exciting trend coming in the second half of 2012 and that's the number of horror-related animated movies being released, obviously meant for kids, but with lots of in-jokes that older fans should appreciate as well.
Sony Pictures Animation's Hotel Transylvania has a couple of advantages over the others, first because it stars some of the most famous monsters from moviedom including Count Dracula, Frankenstein and the Wolf Man, but also because it's the feature film and computer animation debut of Genndy Tartakovsy, best known for cartoons like "Samurai Jack," "Dexter's Laboratory" and the excellent original "Star Wars: Clone Wars" series.
Tartakovsky was already developing a couple of ideas for Sony Pictures Animation when they called upon him to take over the project that they'd been developing for four years and he came on board to develop the three-page outline they had, which grew into an all-star animated comedy featuring the voices of Adam Sandler, Selena Gomez, Kevin James, Celo Green and many more.
You may already have seen the new trailer last week, but before its debut, ComingSoon.net's ShockTillYouDrop.com had a chance to see some footage from the animated movie presented by Tartakovsky and the film's producer Michelle Murdocca, who has been with Sony Pictures Animation since its inception ten years ago.
