Sony Pictures Animation has revealed the very first Hotel Transylvania 2 image from the upcoming sequel in concert with announcing that Mel Brooks has joined the voice cast. Brooks will be providing the voice of Vlad, the “ancient, undead and incredibly grumpy” father of Adam Sandler’s vampire character. The story of the follow-up finds Vlad showing up at the hotel for an impromptu family get-together, resulting in a collision of “supernatural old-school and modern day cool.” I never caught the first film but it was a sizeable success at the box office, grossing $358.3 million worldwide. Genndy Tartakovsky returns to direct the sequel as Robert Smigel once again pens the script.
Check out the first Hotel Transylvania 2 image after the jump. The film opens in theaters on September 25, 2015.
