An aspect of the making of Sony Pictures Animation's new family comedy “Hotel Transylvania” that set it apart was the chance to bring several of the actors together into the recording studio to voice their roles together – responding to each other as they would in a live-action film.

It was the beginning of them creating these characters and personalities together – it helped make the characters really funny and really emotional.”
