'Hotel Transylvania' Picks Up Miley Cyrus as Dracula's Teen Daughter
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:
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.
