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 (Brian Hull) with his most terrifying task yet. When Van Helsing’s (Jim Gaffigan) mysterious invention, the ‘Monsterification Ray,’ goes haywire, Drac and his monster pals are all transformed into humans, and Johnny (Andy Samberg) 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 (Selena Gomez) and the hilariously human Drac Pack, the heat is on to find a way to switch themselves back before their transformations become permanent.

The film also features the voices of Kathryn Hahn (Ericka), Steve Buscemi (Wayne), Molly Shannon (Wanda), David Spade (Griffin the Invisible Man), Keegan-Michael Key (Murray), Fran Drescher (Eunice), Brad Abrell (Frank), and Asher Blinkoff (Dennis).” ~ Sony Pictures Animation

What I liked about Hotel Transylvania: Transformation

I have to be honest, we already watched it twice!  The second time I noticed things like the memory sequences of the special father/daughter relationship that Drac and Mavis have leading up to her wedding day.  And how it gets interrupted as Johnny longs to be a part of the family and changes the song to “Just the 3 of us”.  

As parents, there comes a time when we need to open our arms and hearts to the people our children love.  We get to come full circle in life from being the one that someone brought home to the family to making sure we let others in also.

We can connect to the frustrations that both Drac and Johnny feel and the family dynamics that are ever-changing as we and our children get older.

Johnny plans a grand celebration that ultimately ends in disaster but they wind up growing closer together as they adventure together to South America for a crystal that can make everything like it was.

At one point, Drac says “Being a human is the worst.”  It’s funny and a gut wrenching, relatable feeling.  We’re reminded of how fragile we are as humans in a fun, honest way.  Even the ending is surprisingly hilarious and heartwarming.

You may even find yourself wondering what adventures South America might hold for your family.  

So, gear up for some family time laughs filled with love and adventure.  Coming to you Friday, January 14th with Prime Video.
