Hotel Transylvania (2012) Poster

Trivia

In the movie commentary, it is mentioned the town at the end with the fair is loosely based on a real town known as Sighisoara, Romania. Sighisoara is also known as the birthplace of Vlad the Impaler, the real Count Dracula and is the only inhabited citadel in Europe.
Dracula's wife and the infant version of Mavis are voiced by Adam Sandler's wife and daughter.
(at around 5 mins) The license plate on Dracula's hearse is Romanian. This is correct, as Transylvania is now part of Romania.
(at around 10 mins) Among the decorations on the wall of Mavis' room is a poster that very clearly resembles her real life voice, Selena Gomez.
(at around 1h 20 mins) At the end of the movie, at Mavis's birthday party, the label on the record on the turntable reads "Oh! who said so - Sung by - Mr. Charles Penrose". This was a real pre-WWI record.
Miley Cyrus was cast as Mavis, but she withdrew to focus on other projects, so she was replaced by Selena Gomez.
In an early version of the story, Murray was going to have a song and dance number with his sidekicks, the Mummettes.
The film was released on September 28th, which is World Rabies Day.
Several characters resemble the actors who provide the voices.
The second animated feature film for Adam Sandler (the first being Eight Crazy Nights (2002)).
