Hotel Transylvania: Transformania Without Adam Sandler
One thing is missing from the new film Hotel Transylvania: Transformania and that is the Adam Sandler, who is best known in the franchise as the voice of Dracula. Adam Sandler is such a big part of the franchise, and truly is one of the reasons these films are as successful as they are. It goes without saying that his absence from the sequel is surely felt. During the press conference, some hinted that Sandler was unable to sign on to this sequel because of it scheduling conflicts. While fans will definitely miss Adam, Brian Hull who replaces the voice as Dracula does a fantastic job filling in the very big shoes left by Sandler. As Fran Drescher says, it is probably because he is not imitating Sandler, but rather he is imitating Dracula.
It’s lucky that Adam didn’t sound like Adam. In our camp Dracula is an imitatable voice. I don’t really think that the fans are gonna even notice, quite frankly. When the movie was being developed at its early stages, and the first couple, Adam played a really important part in its development and producing and everything and making it as quality as it is — working with writers from SNL and all of that. But the voice itself is the voice of Dracula. – Fran Drescher
