Already missing Count Dracula, Mavis, Johnny and the rest of the Hotel Transylvania fam after their recent fun-filled summer vacation? You can put away your torches, because Hotel Transylvania 4 is in the works and set to hit theaters on December 22, 2021.
After the continued success of the family-friendly take on monster mythology, most recently with Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation making over $528 million in worldwide earnings, it’s no surprise the franchise isn’t becoming Mr. Invisible and moving forward with a fourth installment.
The movies starring the likes of Adam Sandler, Selena Gomez, Andy Samberg, Kevin James and Steve Buscemi is Sony Animation’s most profitable property, with $1.3 billion gross overall, per Deadline. Out of the top five Sony Animation earners domestically, the Hotel Transylvania rank in the No. 2 through No. 4 rank.
Sony’s No. 1 grossing film is currently Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which recently dethroned the monster-filled franchise for the top spot domestically. Into the Spider-Verse also awarded the studio its first Best Animated Feature Oscar, breaking Disney’s seven-year streak over the weekend.
