Sony Pictures Animation has launched a Facebook that’s sharing a little Halloween treat, if you can even call it that. It was recently announced that both Adam Sandler and Javier Bardem would be providing voices for Genndy Tartakovsky’s 3-D animated Hotel Transylvania.
In the story, a sort of “Romeo and Juliet” with monsters, Simon Van Helsing — the youngest in a long line of monster hunters — falls in love with Dracula’s daughter. Upon the discovery that they are enemies, the couple attempt to bring peace between the monsters and humans.
Aiming for release September 21, 2012, Sony has released a lengthy synopsis alongside a trio of production sketches that provide you with a first look at Sandler as the Count. With Jack and Jill hitting next month, it’s hard to be excited for anything with Sandler. “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.”
