Miley Cyrus Cast As Dracula's Daughter In Hotel Transylvania

Back on Halloween, the first concept art for the new Sony Pictures Animation film Hotel Transylvania appeared online. But while the drawings only showed off the character at the center of the piece, there are many other monsters in the film as well, including Frankenstein, The Mummy, The Invisible Man and a teenage girl (yeah, I went there). But while the first four characters all have actors set to voice them (Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Cee-Lo and David Spade, respectively) Dracula's daughter was left speechless. That is, until today.

Entertainment Weekly has learned that Miley Cyrus will be joining the movie as the teenager responsible for stressing out the king of vampires. The plot of the film revolves around Dracula running a monsters-only resort that gets disrupted when his daughter brings in a human (Andy Samberg). The first image of the character has also been released and you can check it out below:

Perhaps it's just the stripes on the stockings, but is anyone else getting a Lydia Deetz vibe from this design? This will be only the second time that Cyrus has provided a voice for an animated film, the first being the 2008 Walt Disney Animation film Bolt (which earned high praises from critics when it came out). The cast of Hotel Translyvania also includes Steve Buscemi, Fran Drescher and Molly Shannon and the film is being directed by Samurai Jack creator Genndy Tartakovsky. Still in production, the movie will arrive in theaters on September 21, 2012.
