We're super excited that HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA 3: SUMMER VACATION is coming to theaters THIS Friday, July 13 – – Yes, that's Friday the 13th! A few weeks ago I had a chance to attend the Hotel Transylvania 3 press junket in Los Angeles to get some inside scoop on the movie and attend a press conference with members of the cast including Selena Gomez, Andy Samberg, Kathryn Hahn and Director Genndy Tartakovsky.
The cast members were all very fun and as animated as their characters. Selena Gomez was her usual adorable self and Andy Samberg was was hilarious! (Although I have to admit Andy was pretty adorable too and Selena had a few super funny remarks.) Kathryn Hahn is a new member of the cast for this latest HT3 sequel and, in my opinion, a great addition! Kathryn said, “This is my first big animated anything and so it has been a ball. I'm just excited my kids an see something I've done.”
There are lots of fun parts of the interview including discussion of the movie's kraken scene (which none of the cast had actually seen yet), their opinions of the new Hotel Transylvania 3 costumes, how Joe Jonas came to be in the movie, the cast's favorite “feel good” songs, the challenges and benefits of voice acting, why El Chupacabra is in Hotel T3 and El Coco is not, and lots more. This press conference was streamed live on Facebook, so you can see the whole thing below:
