Gomez voices Mavis, Dracula's daughter who begs for freedom from his over-protective dad as a present for her 118th birthday.
"Hotel Transylvania" has just dropped its first clip. Featuring Selena Gomez's and Adam Sandler's characters, it sees Gomez's Mavis celebrating her 118th birthday in her locked-up room. For a birthday present, she begs her dad Dracula to allow her explore the world outside their hidden castle.
Mavis keeps on whining and moaning to her over-protective dad until she doesn't realize that her bloodsucker dad actually says "yes." Happy to know that her father agrees to let her go, she spontaneously jumps into the air and hugs her dad tightly.
Hotel Transylvania is Dracula's (Sandler) lavish five-stake resort, where monsters and their families can live it up, free from meddling with the human world. However, there's a little known fact about Dracula; he is not only the Prince of Darkness, he is also a dad.
Over-protective of his teenage daughter, Mavis, Dracula fabricates tales of elaborate dangers to dissuade her adventurous spirit. As a haven for Mavis, he opens the hotel, where his daughter and some of the world's most famous monsters can kick back in safety and peace.
For Dracula, catering to all of those monsters is no problem - but his world could come crashing down when one ordinary guy stumbles on the hotel and takes a shine to Mavis.
Gomez replaces Miley Cyrus, who was initially tapped to voice Mavis. She is joined in the voice cast ensemble by Andy Samberg, Kevin James, Fran Drescher, David Spade, Steve Buscemi, Molly Shannon and Cee-Lo Green.
The animated movie will grace theaters across the U.S. on September 28.
