Miley Cyrus / Mavis

Recently some early drawings featuring the character design of Dracula in Sony Pictures Animation's Hotel Transylvania surfaced, but since the film is computer animated, we thought it better to wait until some complete form of the character was available (see the drawings at the studio's Facebook page). While we still don't have an image of Dracula voiced by Adam Sandler, EW has just revealed a new cast member in Miley Cyrus along with a first look at her fully rendered character Mavis, the teen daughter of the iconic vampire who builds a resort for monsters and their families as a way to keep her from going out into the real world.

Here's our first look at Miley Cyrus' character Mavis in Hotel Transylvania via EW:

Hotel Transylvania First Look - Mavis

Looking like a young Hot Topic employee, you can just tell Mavis is the kind of girl desperate to get out of Transylvania as her father desperately tries to keep her at home. Of course, that becomes a challenge when a regular 21-year old guy and world traveler (voiced by Andy Samberg) gives her a taste of what's beyond the dark home she's been stuck in for her entire life. Normally an animated project wouldn't have my complete attention yet, but having "Dexter's Laboratory" and "Samurai Jack" director Genndy Tartakovsky behind the film is some really great news for animation fans.

Cyrus joins quite an assembly of voice talent that includes Kevin James voicing "Frank" Frankenstein, Fran Drescher as his in-your-face, over-the-top, and larger-than-life Bride; David Spade as Quasimodo, now a passionate gourmet chef; Steve Buscemi and Molly Shannon voicing Wayne and Wanda, a pair of married werewolves, parents to an ever-increasing litter of pups; and Cee Lo Green putting his talents behind Murray, a boisterous Mummy, once entertainer to the great Pharaohs, now the life of the party.

    miley does bear a close resemblance to the more worldly of two sisters in the old christopher lee vampire flick of the early 60's, called "twins of evil" i would rather see the young girl character from the old cartoon series about the couple who haunt a house with a crazy dead guide. you could use the huge hotel on top of signal mountain in tennessee for a resort model. every one comes out when there's full moonshine, after a couple of swigs, they're gonna have a drawl anyway, so nashville native miley should feel right at home. the hotel is just a few miles from nashville, as the bat flies, in chattanooga.i can imagine a few awe struck evangelists, and a toked up red neck band, playing the "salty dog rag"to get the crowd up and hoofing or pawing as the case may be. a great place for a mummy, as folks down here aren't wrapped too tightly either. just what the city needs. as far as werewolf pups on the increase are concerned, the local girls are still learning they're supposed to swallow their birth control pills. ugh! if you need inspiration, chattanooga has all kinds of characters and scenarios to shock, titillate, and tickle the funny bone with the combination of characters proposed in this animated production. you don't have to go to eastern europe, when there are plenty of batty and otherwise, folks to get ideas from right here at home. have a howl y'all...j. render
