Why Adam Sandler Won’t Be In ‘Hotel Transylvania 4’


Hotel Transylvania 4: Transformania will be available on Amazon Prime Video via Sony Animation. The only remaining question is when. Fans expect the animation to premiere in October 2021. They have noted, however, that one cast member will not be returning: Adam Sandler. For the first three films, the comedian voiced Drac (Dracula).

The fourth installment in Sony Animation’s popular franchise gives its take on legendary Universal monsters a fresh spin. Hotel Transylvania 4 follows Dracula, his daughter Mavis, and the rest of the regular company as they are converted into humans, based on a tale by Genndy Tartakovsky.

As Dracula and his companions return to the Hotel, Abraham Van Helsing reveals the “Monsterification Ray,” a gadget that transforms any human into a monster and the other way around. Dracula, terrified, must disguise himself as a human, relinquish his abilities, and traverse the globe in search of a cure to stop the machine.

He embarks on a mission to reverse their changes before they become permanent, and to acquire a taste of human life.

Drac intended for his Hotel Transylvania to be a haven for monsters. Frank, nicknamed Frankenstein, Wayne and Wanda Werewolf, and Murray the Mummy are among the monsters. They are free to explore the grounds without being bothered by humans. This is because Drac despises people as a result of his wife’s death.

Voice actor and YouTuber Brian Hull will be cast in the part of Drac.


Hull isn’t a well-known Hollywood actor in the same way that many moviegoers may recall their favorite Adam Sandler films right away. Hull’s Disney character impersonations of Mickey Mouse, Winnie the Pooh, and Goofy are well-known. So he’s no stranger to portraying dramatic roles.

As the COVID-19 epidemic wreaked havoc on the globe, Sony Pictures employees were compelled to work from home. Many animated films, including Tom & Jerry, SpongeBob’s forthcoming Patrick Star spin-off, Sing 2, and even Hotel Transylvania 4, were made remotely from home.

In his career, Adam Sandler has produced a number of films. He brought a comedic approach to Drac as his daughter Mavis (Selena Gomez) falls in love with a human.

Sandler has yet to make an official statement on his departure. Certain indicators, however, point to the cause. Jennifer Kluska and Derek Drymon, according to CBR, proposed a new route for Drac: transforming into a human. They decided that finding a fresh actor for the part was the best option. The human counterpart of Drac, it appears, has a different voice. As a result, Drymon and Kluska stated that the character needs to be reshaped. They did not, however, name Sandler.

The Hotel Transylvania films grossed over $1 billion worldwide thanks to Sandler’s following and vision for the franchise as an Executive Producer. Sandler’s absence from Hotel Transylvania 4 is unusual. The split between Sandler and the franchise might have been due to artistic differences, scheduling problems, or even financial issues. Sandler was renowned for receiving large sums of money from Sony, with a basic salary of $20 million plus a percentage of the box office being common at the studio. It’s plausible that Sony was trying to save money on Hotel Transylvania 4, and eliminating Sandler from the picture would help them do so.

Hull isn’t the only newcomer to the cast and crew of Transformania; director Genndy Tartakovsky has been replaced by Jennifer Kluska and Derek Drymon, while Tartakovsky retains script and story credits. The character of Frankenstein has also been replaced, with Brad Abrell replacing Kevin James as the monster. Given their close connection, it’s unclear whether James and Sandler’s exits from the series are linked.
