It was Produced by Sony Pictures Animation and Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky. It was released on September 25, 2015.

Plot

Some time after the first film has passed, and its Mavis Dracula (Selena Gomez) and Jonathan Loughran's (Andy Samberg) wedding day. Johnny's family arrives at Hotel Transylvania, a bit uncomfortable with being around monsters, but the ceremony commences without a problem. However, when it comes time for the kiss, Mavis' father, Dracula (Adam Sandler) uses his telekinesis to toss a shrunken head door-sign between them; a bit ashamed, Drac allows them a quick kiss.

During the reception, Drac's friend Marty gives a heart-felt speech, which only the monsters and Johnny can understand. Bigfoot cries, accidentally soaking Johnny's parents Mike (Nick Offerman) and Linda (Megan Mullally). When it comes to to cut the cake, its revealed to be a screaming one; Johnny's relatives are a bit uneasy with eating the screaming slices. The newlyweds then share a dance; Drac and Linda take their respect turns with their child. Drac and Mavis dance onto the ceiling; he tells her he's happy as long as she is, but will feel alone once she and Johnny leave the hotel. Mavis surprises her dad by explaining she and Johnny aren't moving out; however, she then wonders why he didn't invite her grandfather. Drac explains it's due to him not being "hip" with humans like they are now.

About a year later, Drac is painting in his room; it seems he's making an impressionist painting, but its revealed to be an accurate portrait of the monster modeling for him. Mavis and Johnny enter, asking if Drac would like to go flying with her; though suspicious of what they're up to, Drac agrees to spend time with his daughter. They turn into bats and fly into the clouds. Drac then notices Mavis is playing hide-and-seek; however, he catches her quite easily as Mavis is breathing heavily. She then reveals that she's pregnant, making Drac ecstatic at the idea of having a grandchild.

Later, Mavis asks Johnny for ice cream with anchovies. Drac immediately rushes onto the scene, informing her it's not healthy for her baby to give into cravings. Using a baby book for vampires, Drac has meals prepared that ensure the child is healthy and can climb walls properly. However, Mavis points out that the baby might be human like Johnny. Drac laughs at the idea, giving her some monster-balls soup, her favorite dish.

Months pass, until Friday the 13th in an unspecified month. Drac attempts to see Mavis, but is kept away by a monster doctor, who informs him that only the father is allowed in the delivery room. Drac is confused, but leaves without any resistance. Later, Drac sneaks in, disguised as a female nurse; he learns he has a grandson, whom is named Dennis (Asher Blinkoff) after his paternal grandfather. Vowing to never let harm come to Dennis, Drac blows his cover as Mavis asks for her son back; pretending to be "nurse Francine", Drac gives Dennis back to Mavis. Attempting to leave, Drac is kissed by a zombie orderly; Drac snarl is in response.

At Dennis' first birthday, Drac's friends and Johnny's family arrive. Murray (Keegan-Michael Key) gives Dennis a medallion, and Grandpa Mike gives Dennis a toy soldier. When the idea of Dennis' vampire heritage is brought up, due to the lack of any visual signs of it, Wayne (Steve Buscemi) explains that Dennis has until he's five to get fangs. When Mike and Linda bring up the idea of having Dennis move to where they live, Drac explains that can't happen as Johnny is in charge of making the hotel more human-friendly. Frank and Eunice give Dennis a toy guillotine; however, Mavis confiscates it, saying it needs to be baby-proofed. Drac sourly explains that she's had him baby-proof the entire hotel.

Later, the hotel now accepts humans. However, the new influx of tech to help accommodate this has the staff distracted most of the time. Johnny talks to Drac about updating the acts for the humans. Among them is getting Wayne to teach something else besides tennis as his instincts have him burying the tennis balls. Johnny is also revealed to be teaching Drac how to handle a smart phone.

Nearly four years later, Dennis has befriend Wayne's werewolf pup Winnie (Sadie Sandler), who constantly attacks him playfully. Drac wakes him up one night, trying to get him to learn how to turn into a bat. Mavis stop him, explaining Dennis has human class half the day. Drac is then left less than amused when he learns Dennis thinks monsters are always kind and share cake, due to Kakie The Cake Monster DVDs.

Mavis and Johnny travel to California to visit the in-laws,, leaving Drac to babysit Dennis. Drac enlists his friends Frankenstein (Kevin James), Wayne the Werewolf, Griffin the Invisible Man (David Spade), Murray the Mummy, and Blobby the Blob (Jonny Solomon) to help train Dennis to become a monster, to no avail.

Drac takes Dennis to a summer camp where he learned to hone his vampire abilities, to no avail either. Desperate, Drac hurls Dennis from a tall, unstable tower to pressure him into transforming to a bat, but rescues him at the last second. The stunt is filmed by the campers and uploaded to the internet which eventually reaches Mavis and Johnny who hurry back to Transylvania. Mavis scolds her father for endangering Dennis and his inability to accept that he is human, promising to move out of the hotel after Dennis’ fifth birthday.

Mavis invites Vlad Dracula (Mel Brooks), her grandfather and Drac’s father, to Dennis’ birthday party. Dismayed, Drac has the partygoers disguised as monsters. Vlad arrives with his monstrous bat servant Bela (Rob Riggle) and meets his great-grandson. He believes that fear will cause Dennis’ fangs to sprout and manipulates a stage performer into scaring Dennis, but Drac shields his grandson and exposes Vlad, who is outraged that Drac has accepted humans as guests in his hotel.

Mavis is angered by her grandfather’s treachery and while the family quarrels, an upset Dennis flees the hotel and enters the forest with Winnie in tow, but they are attacked by Bela. When Bela injures Winnie, Dennis instantly grows his fangs and his vampire abilities manifest. Drac, Mavis, and Dennis team up to defeat Bela’s minions. Bela attempts to kill Johnny in revenge, but Vlad appears with a change of heart and shrinks his former servant to a harmless size.

With Dennis a pure-blood vampire, Mavis decides to continue raising her son in Transylvania and the party resumes.

Production

Genndy Tartakovsky commented in October 2012 the possibility of the sequel: "Everyone is talking about it, but we haven't started writing it. There are a lot of fun ideas we could totally play with. It's a ripe world." On November 9, 2012, it was announced that a sequel has been greenlit, and is set for release September 25, 2015. Tartakovsky will return as the director, even though he originally was too busy due to his developing an adaptation of Popeye.[9]

Sequel

Before the release of Hotel Transylvania 2 there was already talk about a third film among the studio and the film's producer. However, it is unlikely that the movie's director Genndy Tartakovsky will be returning due to other projects he is currently working on such as Can You Imagine. On November 2, 2015, Sony confirmed that Hotel Transylvania 3 will be released on September 21, 2018.[10]
