Genndy Tartakovsky, the director of the film, commented in October 2012, about the possibility of the sequel: "Everyone is talking about it, but we haven't started writing it. There are a lot of fun ideas we could totally play with. It's a ripe world." On November 9, 2012, it was announced that a sequel has been greenlit, and is scheduled for release on September 25, 2015. On March 12, 2014, it was announced Tartakovsky will return to direct the sequel, even though he originally was too busy due to his developing an adaptation of Popeye.

"I think the next thing I'm doing is the voice in Hotel Transylvania 2, I thought that movie came out really well and especially Adam and Selena Gomez did a very good job with it. It was a very sweet, funny movie. The next one comes out next year. And there's talk of a Grown Ups 3 next winter."
