In the animated movie, the former 'Hannah Montana' star lends her voice to a character named Mavis, who is a teenage uber-vamp and the daughter of Dracula.
Miley Cyrus has checked in to "Hotel Transylvania". The 18-year-old former Disney darling has been cast to voice Dracula's daughter in the upcoming Sony Pictures' animated film, and Entertainment Weekly has obtained a first look at the teen star's animated character called Mavis.
In the picture, Cyrus' black-haired character is seen standing against a white background, wearing a black mini dress paired with matching stockings and red canvas boots. The character is described as a teenage uber-vamp. Her father Dracula, who is voiced by Adam Sandler, is the owner of the titular hotel.
In the film, over-protective dad Dracula fabricates tales of elaborate dangers to dissuade Mavis' adventurous spirit. As a haven for Mavis, he opens Hotel Transylvania, where his daughter and some of the world's most famous monsters can kick back in safety and peace. For Drac, catering to all of these legendary monsters is no problem, but his world would come crashing down when one ordinary guy stumbles on the hotel and takes a shine to Mavis.
The voice cast members of "Hotel Transylvania" also include Kevin James as Frankenstein, David Spade as the Invisible Man, David Koechner as Quasimodo, Cee-Lo Green as Murrat the Mummy, as well as Steve Buscemi and Molly Shannon as a werewolf couple. Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, the film will be released in U.S. theaters on September 21, 2012.
As for Cyrus, this is not the first time she lends her voice for an animated movie. Back in 2008, she voiced a character named Penny in "Bolt". Aside from "Hotel Transylvania", Cyrus will be seen in two comedy movies, "So Undercover" and "LOL", next year.
