The Hotel Transylvania franchise has been a favorite in our home since like, forever. How can you not love the Dracula family and their friends? We are really excited that there is a third movie coming out this summer. To get ourselves prepared for the movie and to make the wait a little bit more bearable we have been watching the first two movies on repeat!
I think that this series is great for so many reasons. At the heart, this movie is about family and friendship. It is about sticking together and taking care of your own. It is also about learning how to love and accept those that are different from you. If monsters and humans can get along then it shouldn’t be a reach for humans to get along with other humans, don’t ya think???
I know, you don’t want to get too heavy and serious during a family fun night and these movies do a great job at keeping it light while delivering the message. It also does a great job of keeping both littles and parents laughing with an all-star cast.
Here are the details on what you get with the DVDs and some info on each of the first two movies in case you need some reminding:
About HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA:
Welcome to Hotel Transylvania, Dracula’s lavish five-stake resort, where monsters and their families can live it up and no humans are allowed.
