Surprise! One Movie This Summer Is Moving Forward, Not Back: ‘Hotel Transylvania: Transformania’


Sony has announced that the release date for the fourth installment in their highly popular Hotel Trasylvania series, Hotel Transylvania: Transformania, will be moving forward two weeks this summer. The film will now open on July 23 instead of August 6.

Taking advantage of one of the caps in this summer’s release schedule, Hotel Transylvania: Transformania is being moved off of a weekend where it would be directly competing with Warner Bros./HBO Max’s The Suicide Squad. Granted, the two films are aimed at vastly different audiences but moving to a weekend with less high-profile releases should mean a better opening for Hotel Transylvania. It also sandwiches the film between the releases of Disney’s Jungle Cruise, Warner Bros./HBO Max’s Space Jam: A New Legacy, and Sony’s Cinderella, which will give families three weeks in a row of fun new movies to experience.

Hotel Transylvania: Transformania is set to be the final film in the animated franchise, which started in 2012. This film is directed by Jennifer Kluska and Derek Drymon, written by Genndy Tartakovsky, produced by Alice Dewey Goldstone, and executive produced by Selena Gomez, Genndy Tartakovsky, and Michelle Murdocca. Given the popularity and success of the previous three films, we can expect this new installment to be a feature worth watching, especially with returning voice cast members Selena Gomez, Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg, among others. So be sure to catch it after its release on July 23.

She loves music, reading (obviously), and any TV show that can grab and hold her attention. Currently some of her favorite things to nerd out over include Supernatural, Prodigal Son, Louden Swain and Percy Jackson (books, theater, or upcoming show - lets leave the movies out of it).
