Hotel Transylvania 4 Is Worse Without Adam Sandler
Hotel Transylvania: Transformania was the fourth movie in the Hotel Transylvania series. It premiered on Amazon Prime but without Adam Sandler’s voice talent. There is no official explanation for why Sandler did not return to voice Dracula (who he also played in the previous Hotel Transylvania movies). Hotel Transylvania4 Dracula, his friends, a werewolf named Wayne, a Mummy named Murray, Griffin, the invisible man and Frankenstein, are all transformed into human beings by Van Helsing’s monster ray. Johnny, Dracula’s daughter Mavis’s husband uses the ray as a way to transform into a monster to allow Dracula and Mavis to take control of the hotel. Dracula and Johnny are forced to find a special crystal to fix the monster ray after an accident.
Most of the cast of Hotel Transylvania 3 have returned, including Wizards of Waverly Place star Selena Gomez who plays Mavis, and Andy Samberg as Johnny. However, Sandler is being replaced by Brian Hull. Hull had previously voiced the character of Monster Pets. Brad Abrell is replacing Kevin James as Frankenstein’s voice actor. Derek Drymon, director of the film, said that Dracula’s transformation makes it easy to hear the slight differences in his voice. Dracula is a human for the majority of the movie.

Hotel Transylvania4 isn’t as effective without Adam Sandler. Hull does a good job as Dracula’s voice actor, but Adam Sandler’s Dracula character voice is a memorable part of the character. Sandler is well-known for his outrageous comedy style. However, he brings warmth to his family movies and makes them more than silly comedies. A sequel that loses a key actor is usually a sign that the material has been rewritten.
Brian Hull appears to be imitating Adam Sandler’s impression of Count Dracula. The problem is that Adam Sandler’s Dracula, despite his distinct voice, never sounded like Adam Sandler making an impression. Sandler is like many comedians. He is a skilled actor who can easily switch between roles in dramas such as Uncut Jewels and comedies such as Grown Ups. He was not interested in being an Adam Sandler character, but created a Dracula voice. Hull’s impression sometimes sounds too much like Sandler or veers off the Dracula voice.
The fourth Hotel Transylvania movie feels a little lacking in heart, particularly compared to the other two films in the series. Sandler’s departure could have indicated that the movie was not going to live up the expectations of the other movies in the franchise. The chemistry between Sandler, some returning actors, could have been a problem in Hotel Transylvania 4.. For example, Drac and Johnny’s bonding experience could have been enhanced if Andy Samberg and Adam Sandler had had the opportunity to play off each other. Sometimes, funny moments in animated movies can be created when the actors are able to play around with their ideas. Sandler might have done a better impression of some of the more silly moments Drac encounters, especially after he loses his vampire powers.
The movie would be incomplete without Adam Sandler. It’s probably for good that Hotel Transylvania is the final movie in the franchise. It’s not worth continuing to make films if major cast members such as Sandler or Kevin James don’t plan to return. Hotel Transylvania4: Transformania was not a necessary addition to this franchise and the absent stars did it no favors.
