Hotel Transylvania 2 is a 2015 American computer-animated monster comedy film directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, written by Robert Smigel and Adam Sandler, and it is the second installment in the Hotel Transylvania franchise and the sequel to Hotel Transylvania (2012). Produced by Sony Pictures Animation, it was animated by Sony Pictures Imageworks, with an additional funding provided by LStar Capital.
Hotel Transylvania 2 depicts events taking place after the first film, with the hotel now open to human guests after the monster hunting organizations and groups are shut down. Mavis and Johnny have a young son named Dennis, whose lack of any vampire abilities worries his maternal grandfather Dracula. When Mavis and Johnny go on a visit to Johnny's parents, Drac calls his friends to help him make Dennis a vampire. Soon, things turn upside-down when Drac's old-school, human-hating father Vlad unexpectedly visits the hotel.
