The first clip from ‘Hotel Transylvania’ has arrived and now fans can see, er, hear Selena Gomez voicing her animated character, Mavis.
The scene, which also features Adam Sandler as Mavis’ father, Dracula, begins with the young-looking vampire pacing around her room on her 118th birthday. She practices a speech to her father in which she explains why she should be able to leave the grounds and explore the world.
She eventually comes face-to-face with her father and continues to make her case. However, she talks so much that she doesn’t realize that her dad has given her permission to go. “Holy rabies!” she exclaims at the news.
Produced by Sandler, ‘Hotel Transylvania’ focuses on Dracula’s high-end resort, which prides itself on giving monsters a place to get away, especially from humans. However, when a boy falls for his daughter, Dracula goes into ultimate overprotective dad-mode.
This isn’t Gomez’s first animated film. The 20-year-old voiced Helga in ‘Horton Hears a Who!’ and Princess Selenia in both ‘Arthur and the Revenge of Maltazard’ and ‘Arthur 3: The War of the Two Worlds.’ Andy Samberg, Kevin James, Fran Drescher, David Spade, Steve Buscemi, Molly Shannon and Cee Lo Green round out the cast of ‘Hotel Transylvania,’ which arrives on Sept. 28.

Selena Gomez found ‘Hotel Transylvania’ to be in her ‘comfort zone’.
The 19-year-old star – who plays the role of Mavis in the animated film – loved taking part in the movie because it felt to her like she was doing exactly what she should.
She said: ‘To be honest, I’m actually not that great with animation because I feel like sometimes it’s harder to act with your voice than to act with your actual self. But, this was such a great experience and everyone was wonderful to work with.
‘It was a good thing for me to do, in that area, because I was doing a couple movies that were out of my comfort zone. I felt this was a nice way to go back to that.’
Adam Sandler plays the role of her father in the film, and she admits she loved working with him because he was ‘really funny’.
She added to Collider.com: ‘He’s awesome! He’s so cool! He was there for almost all of my sessions. He was really nice. He would be a cool dad. He’s somebody who’s really funny and just makes everybody laugh.’
