Hotel Transylvania: Transformania has finally set a release date for Jan. 14, 2022.
Back in August of this year, Amazon acquired Hotel Transylvania: Transformania from Sony for a rumored $100M. This has been an ongoing discussion between the two companies as Sony tried to find a release home for the film amidst shifting dates due to the COVID Pandemic.
The film series has grossed $1.3B to date with Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation having grossed $527.1M globally in 2018.
Drac and the pack are back, like you’ve never seen them before in Hotel Transylvania: Transformania. Reunite with your favorite monsters for an all-new adventure that presents Drac with his most terrifying task yet. When Van Helsing’s mysterious invention, the “Monsterfication Ray,” goes haywire, Drac and his monster pals are all transformed into humans, and Johnny becomes a monster! In their new mismatched bodies, Drac, stripped of his powers, and an exuberant Johnny, loving life as a monster, must team up and race across the globe to find a cure before it’s too late, and before they drive each other crazy. With help from Mavis and the hilariously human Drac Pack, the heat is on to find a way to switch themselves back before their transformations become permanent.
“The success of the Hotel Transylvania franchise over the years speaks for itself,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios. “Audiences around the world have fallen in love with the films created by the brilliant Genndy Tartakovsky, and the latest installment is the perfect ending to an incredible journey.”
“These films have thrilled audiences and paved the way for so many artists working in CG animation,” said Sony Pictures Animation chief Kristine Belson. “We are thrilled to work with Amazon to bring this film to families everywhere.”
Hotel Transylvania: Transformania will debut on Amazon Prime Video on Jan. 14, 2022.
