Selena Gomez’s animated movie, Hotel Transylvania opens in theaters on September 28th. Starring in the movie is the guy with the funny bone Adam Sandler who plays Selena’s dad. The movie is set in a lavish resort that belongs to Dracula (Adam Sandler) where monsters and their families are free to live their lives without any human interference. His lovely daughter Mavis (Selena Gomez) longs to explore the world on her 118th birthday but things get shaken up when a human guy (Andy Samberg) after his encounter with Mavis falls for her.
Excited about her movie, Selena tweeted, “: 'Hotel Transylvania trailer airing tonight on ET at 7:00pm!!!! So excited for you guys to see this movie it is so good.' The role of voicing Mavis was earlier given to Miley Cyrus, who pulled out of the movie after four months citing differences.
Talking about her onscreen dad in the movie, Selena says, "He's awesome! He's so cool! He was there for almost all of my sessions. He was really nice. He would be a cool dad," she gushed. "He's somebody who's really funny and just makes everybody laugh." On being questioned about doing animated roles in the future and to stay connected to her audience while growing into older roles, she said, “Yes, that’s exactly one of the reasons why I did it. To be honest, I’m actually not that great with animation because I feel like sometimes it’s harder to act with your voice than to act with your actual self. But, this was such a great experience and [everyone was] wonderful to work with. It was a good thing for me to do, in that area, because I was doing a couple movies that were out of my comfort zone. I felt this was a nice way to go back to that.”
