Drac’s father pays an unexpected family visit in ‘Hotel Transylvania 2’.

The Drac pack is back for an all-new monster-comedy adventure in Sony Pictures Animation's Hotel Transylvania 2.

Everything seems to be changing for the better at Hotel Transylvania. Dracula's rigid monster-only hotel policy has finally relaxed, opening up its doors to human guests. But behind closed coffins, Drac is worried that his adorable half-human, half-vampire grandson, Dennis, isn't showing signs of being a vampire. So while Mavis is busy visiting her human in-laws with Johnny - and in for a major cultural shock of her own - 'Vampa' Drac enlists his friends Frank, Murray, Wayne and Griffin to put Dennis through a "monster-in-training" boot camp. But little do they know that Drac's grumpy and very old, old, old school dad Vlad is about to pay a family visit to the hotel. And when Vlad finds out that his great-grandson is not a pure blood - and humans are now welcome at Hotel Transylvania - things are going to get batty!

Hotel Transylvania 2 is an American 3D computer animated fantasy-comedy. The film is the sequel to the 2012 film Hotel Transylvania, with its director, Genndy Tartakovsky, and writer, Robert Smigel, returning for the film. Original voices from the first film - Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez, Kevin James, Steve Buscemi, David Spade, Fran Drescher, Molly Shannon - returns for the sequel, with Keegan-Michael Key replacing CeeLo Green as Murray. New additions to the cast include Academy Award-winner Mel Brooks as Count Dracula's father, Vlad.
