“Hotel Transylvania” 2 has a very good opening weekend at the box office. In fact, it was so good that the team behind the sequel is already planning a “Hotel Transylvania” 3. However, there is going to be one major change. Read on.
Director Genndy Tartakovsky will not be joining the production of “Hotel Transylvania” 3. However, he confirmed that he expects Sony Pictures Animation to make several “Hotel Transylvania” titles but he won’t be a part of it anymore. This is what he said, “‘Hotel Transylvania’ 3 is going to happen without me. Two is enough. I have a lot of other ideas, and I kind of have to express them and have them come out.”
The decision for a “Hotel Transylvania” 3 is due to the success that the sequel is currently experiencing. The first three days of the movie already broke a September opening weekend record with $48.4 million in the U.S. The worldwide gross of the film so far is $80 million as per Cinema Blend.
As for Tartakovsky decision not to be a part of another “Hotel Transylvania” movie, it may be because he and Sony Pictures Animations have been having creative differences and it is possible that Tartakovsky plans to leave his connection with the company. He has been working on a new “Popeye” movie and he also used to be one of the key players on Cartoon Network. Tartakovsky is the creator of “Dexter’s Laboratory” as well as a contributor to the “Star Wars: Clone Wars” show.
If “Hotel Transylvania” 3 pushes through, we are looking at an ensemble of stars including the ones that we have today such as Adam Sandler, Selena Gomez and Andy Samberg and some new big stars might join the second sequel as well.
