Hotel Transylvania 2 is an upcoming American 3D computer animated fantasy comedy film produced by Sony Pictures Animation. It is the sequel to the 2012 film Hotel Transylvania. It is being directed by Genndy Tartakovsky and written by Robert Smigel. The film stars Adam Sandler, Selena Gomez, Andy Samberg, Mel Brooks, David Spade, Keegan-Michael Key, Kevin James, Steve Buscemi and Fran Drescher. The film is scheduled to be released on September 25, 2015, by Columbia Pictures.
Hotel Transylvania has gone through several changes: the hotel is now opened to human guests; Mavis and Johnny have a baby boy, Dennis, whose lack of any vampire abilities worries Count Dracula. When Mavis and Johnny go on a visit to Johnny's parents, Dracula calls his friends Frank, Murray, Wayne and Griffin to help him put Dennis through a "monster-in-training" boot camp. Meanwhile, Vlad, the grumpy vampire father of Dracula, arrives at the hotel and, to his dissatisfaction, finds out that his great-grandson is not a pure blood and that the hotel now accepts humans.

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.
