Hotel Transylvania 4 Heads Straight to Streaming on Amazon Prime in January


As reported in August when a deal was closed, Amazon has licensed Hotel Transylvania: Transformania from Sony Pictures Animation. The fourth (and final) installment in the blockbuster franchise will stream globally — excluding China — on Prime Video on Jan. 14, 2022. The first Hotel Transylvania movie was released in 2012, and the series has grossed more than $1.3 billion worldwide.


Amazon similarly licensed Cinderella from Sony last spring, and the Kay Cannon-directed musical premiered on Prime Video in September.


Transformania is directed by Derek Drymon and Jennifer Kluska from a script by Amos Vernon, Nunzio Randazzo and franchise creator/executive producer Genndy Tartakovsky.


Brian Hull and Brad Abrell have replaced original stars Adam Sandler and Kevin James as Dracula and Frankenstein, respectively. The rest of the cast has returned, including Selena Gomez as Mavis, Andy Samberg as Johnny, David Spade, Steve Buscemi, Kathryn Hahn, Jim Gaffigan, Molly Shannon, Keegan-Michael Key and Fran Drescher. Gomez is also executive producing with Michelle Murdocca.
