New Concept Art For Hotel Transylvania

Genndy Tartakovsky, director of cult cartoon hit series’ SAMURAI JACK and DEXTER’S LABORATORY, will make his full-length animated feature debut with HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA. The film will feature a number of familiar, iconic creatures and monsters played to comic-effect. Here we have a look at the concept art for Murray, the Mummy-inspired character that will be voiced by singer Cee Lo Green.

A host of well-know faces of Adam Sandler regulars will contribute to the voice-talent, including David Spade, Kevin James, Steve Buscemi and Sandler himself as overprotective father Dracula.  Miley Cyrus, Fran Dresher, David Koechner, Molly Shannon and Andy Samberg round out the rest of the cast. The official synopsis goes 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.

Craig was our great north east correspondent, proving that it’s so ‘grim up north’ that losing yourself in a world of film is a foregone prerequisite. He has been studying the best (and often worst) of both classic and modern cinema at the University of Life for as long as he can remember. Craig’s favorite films include THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, JFK, GOODFELLAS, SCARFACE, and most of John Carpenter’s early work, particularly THE THING and HALLOWEEN.
