Full Hotel Transylvania 2 Trailer Rolls Out New Characters, Visits New Locations

This fall, Dracula, Frankenstein and the rest of the gang are back in Hotel Transylvania 2, and the movie promises all kinds of monster hijinks, as well as some brand new and exciting characters and locations. We got our first look at the film back in March, but now the full theatrical trailer is online and ready to entertain you:

Sony Pictures Animation launched this brand new trailer on their YouTube channel today, and it does a solid job of not only setting up the film's plot, but also introducing a few characters whom we're very excited to see join the ensemble. Without question, our most anticipated new addition is Mel Brooks as Vlad, who gets a dark, weird intro in this new spot as the father of Adam Sandler's Dracula...

But weirdly enough it's actually a pair of human characters we glimpse in the trailer that also ups our interest level in the animated sequel. In the movie, Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally (who are actually married in real life) are teamed up to play the parents of Andy Samberg's character Jonathan, Mike and Linda, and they're drawn into the story because they're also brand new grandparents of the child that Jonathan had with Selina Gomez's Mavis.

Based on a script by Adam Sandler and Robert Smigel, and picking up after the events of the first movie, Hotel Transylvania 2 picks up with Dracula being concerned that his new grandson isn't showing any signs of becoming a vampire, and is afraid that this fact is going to drive his daughter away from home. In trying to fix this problem, he decides to once again team up with Frank (Kevin James), Murray (Keegan-Michael Key), Wayne (Steve Buscemi) and Griffin (David Spade) to try and put the young child through early monster training.

In addition to all of the names mentioned above, the film will also feature the return of Fran Drescher as Eunice, the Bride of Frankenstein, and Chris Kattan, who is credited as playing a character named "Cakie." Sony Pictures will be releasing the film on September 25th. Following the release of this trailer, would you say that your ticket is already sold?
