Hotel Transylvania– the 3D computer-animated monster comedy that ranked as the biggest September opening in movie history and the best opening ever for the studio (Sony Pictures Animation) – is releasing a new animated short as a special Halloween treat.
Beginning October 26, all digital showings of the film (Only in Regal Entertainment Group Cinemas) will be preceded with a new traditionally animated short directed by the film's director, Genndy Tartakovsky (Dexter's Laboratory, Samurai Jack, Star Wars: Clone Wars), who also animated every key frame of the new short.
Entitled "Goodnight, Mr. Foot," the short stars none other than the legendary monster Bigfoot, and follows his adventure as he, too, checks in to Dracula's five-stake resort in search of a little R-and-R, only to find himself faced with an enthusiastic witch-maid, eager to make Mr. Foot's stay a memorable one.
Genndy Tartakovsky commented, "After we finished HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA I got an itch to animate! Taking inspiration from my favorite directors Bob Clampett, Tex Avery, and Chuck Jones I animated a short cartoon in the traditional 2D style. It was difficult and exhilarating all at once and I hope people will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it."
Fans of the film surfing the internet might just keep any eye out for a specially-created promo video popping up some time around October 31 (date TBD).
