Every Daddy has a soft spot for his Little Girl…even Dracula (voiced by Adam Sandler)! In fact, Dracula turns out to be an extremely over-protective father to his teenage daughter, Mavis (voiced by Selena Gomez). Well, actually, Mavis is about to celebrate her 118th birthday, but this makes her a teenager in vampire years. Like many teenagers, Mavis has an adventurous spirit that only makes her father worry more. To try to protect Mavis and dissuade her from engaging in any risky behavior, Dracula not only fabricates all sorts of tales, he also opens a high-end resort, the Hotel Transylvania.
Hotel Transylvania is a wonderful place where monsters can go to get away from it all – and be safe from the world of hateful, vicious humans. It’s a monsters-only hide-away, no humans allowed! Many of the world’s most-famous monsters, including Frankenstein and his bride, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, and more, make the Hotel Transylvania their preferred vacation destination. For Dracula, catering to these legendary monsters is no problem. Until, that is, a young traveler named Jonathan (voiced by Andy Samberg) stumbles upon the Hotel and makes Dracula’s worst nightmare come true.
Jonathan – a human!! – falls for Mavis. Mavis falls for Jonathan. And Dracula goes even farther into “overprotective Daddy” mode trying to protect his little girl before it’s too late.
