Sony Pictures Animation is partnering with Corus Entertainment’s Nelvanato develop a new animated TV series based on the feature film Hotel Transylvania.
Focusing on the teenage years of Dracula’s daughter Mavis and her friends, the animated series will be developed and produced by Nelvana Studio in Toronto, Canada, and is slated to launch on air in early 2017.
“Audiences have embraced the world and characters of Hotel Transylvania, so we are thrilled to be partnering with Nelvana to take them on new adventures, expanding on the teenage years of Mavis and her friends at the world-famous monster five-star resort,” says Kristine Belson, president, Sony Pictures Animation.
The theatrical release of Hotel Transylvania, which premiered in fall 2012, set a record as the highest-grossing September opening ever at the U.S. box office. The sequel Hotel Transylvania 2 is slated to hit theaters Sept. 25.
“We’re excited to be entering into a new relationship with Sony Pictures Animation to extend the world of Hotel Transylvania into a new TV series,” says Colin Bohm, vice president, head, Corus Kids. “The hilarious characters and clever premise of Hotel Transylvania set the stage for endless story possibilities.”
