HS Insider exclusive featurette: Behind-the-scenes of Hotel Transylvania 2

Hotel Transylvania 2 is a delicious spook fest for all ages—and it’s even more thrilling to go behind-the-scenes with director Genndy Tartakovsky (Star Wars: Clone Wars, Samurai Jack, Dexter’s Laboratory) and his animation team on their adventure to bring beloved characters to life once again.

The video above is a glimpse into how much love, work, time, and energy was poured into the project, from the deliberately cartoonish movements to pushing boundaries of technology to scenes that took months to animate. The process of making Hotel Transylvania 2 was highly collaborative and detailed. The featurette is truly a goldmine for both fans of the movie and visual artists.

The movie features the voices of Selena Gomez, Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Kevin James, Mel Brooks and Steve Buscemi.

The featurette is available exclusively on Blu-Ray. Hotel Transylvania 2 DVD and Blu-Ray released on January 12. DVD and Blu-Ray special features include Fifth Harmony music video, sing-along “Scary-oke,” deleted scenes, and more.
