The Drac Pack is officially coming back. Sony Pictures Animation has announced the fourth chapter in the Hotel Transylvania franchise is scheduled for release during the 2021 holiday season.
Braving a likely crowded pre-Christmas field, Hotel Transylvania 4 will open on December 22, 2021. That same day Universal is currently planning to release its fantasy film Wicked directed by Stephen Daldry, and just a week before that, on December 17, James Cameron’s Avatar 3 is expected to hit screens.
This will mark the first time Sony’s animated franchise takes on the holiday season. The first two films debuted in September with their sights set on Halloween, which ties in thematically. Last year’s Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation lived up to its title and was released in July.
