    StitchKingdom and The Hollywood Reporter are both reporting that a Hotel Transylvania series is being made, and that it will air on Disney Channels in the U.S. and internationally.

    I liked the first two films, so I'm interested, but the fact that Nelvana is also involved has me worried.

    UPDATE: The show will air on Disney Channel June 25th.

    Why Disney Channel? It just seems so out of place.

    Not necessarily Disney Channel, Disney Channels Worldwide includes, Disney Channel, Disney XD, Disney Junior, Disney Cinemagic, Dlife, and Hungama TV.

    I think in the US, it will most likely air on Disney XD.

    Man, there are quite a few animated series based on movies coming out next year. I haven't seen either movies yet, but I might for the fun of it and to watch this series. It will most likely air on Disney XD rather than Disney Channel proper in the U.S. though.

    I thought that Hotel Transylvania would always have fitted as something Disney would take interest, and to think its a movie getting a cartoon that is not one of Disney's movies.

    It's probably better as a TV series than just another sequel anyway. All the same, I'm really into this idea. Though I'm curious, since Nelvana's on board, does this mean they'll be using Canadian based voice actors instead of the LA roster, or is Nelvana merely distributing it like they did with Chalkzone or Danny Phantom?

    It's airing on Disney Channel and not Disney XD? When would it air then? Disney's non preschool cartoons always go to Disney XD. In other news, I'm excited for the show. I wonder who the voice cast is.

    The movie (only saw the first for now) was... cute, but nothing really amazing.

    I guess the entire premise would indeed work better as an animated comedy series.

    Unless the writing is a massive step up from those crappy movies, I don't see this doing well at all, honestly. That'll require finding writers who actually know about comedy to begin with, too...

    That makes more sense. When they said "Disney Channels" I thought they meant literal Disney Channels.

    I haven't seen Hotel Transylvania yet, but is it really that bad? It's from Genndy Tartakovsky, the creator of Samurai Jack, Sym-Bionic Titan and the good seasons of Dexter's Laboratory...

    I won't believe Hotel Transylvania is a crappy movie until I've seen it with my own eyes!

    Yes. Please form your own opinion, just like I have mine.

    The movies are pretty good, if a bit flawed, and the general consensus thinks so too. It's certainly a major step up from Adam Sandler's other films.

    Back to this show, it'll be interesting to see who will play what character considering the original films had A List actors.

    Nah, they're totally worth seeing if you're a fan of Genndy's work. They're nothing revolutionary or anything on par with the latest Disney films, but they're serviceable and quite fun.

    Hotel Transylvania 1&2 are definitely one of the best modern animated films from the 2010s.

    I liked the first one. But the second one had too much PC, the villain/s showed up way late, and Mavis should've been called out for the fact that she's turned out even more overprotective than her own father when comes to raising a child.

    Weird how Drac's not going to be in the show in a way (probably will appear at some point, I guess), and from the description (and no mention of Johnny) it sounds like it takes place before the events of the first movie. I wonder if they're gonna go with CGI (which, on a TV budget, obviously won't look as good as the movies) or the traditional route (which, if they do, hope it looks like the end credits animations from both movies). In my opinion, this at least sounds like a better premise than the Cloudy w/Meatballs TV series.

    *GASP* It's gonna be Hand-Drawn... or Flash, that's a possibility. God, Mavis looks cute!
