Monster Pets’ directors Jennifer Kluska and Derek Drymon say, “What would it be like if the Drac Pack all owned pets? We couldn’t be more excited to jump back into the world of Hotel Transylvania and explore all the fun and lovable frustrations of pets through a monster lens. What happens when your golden retriever is five stories tall? Or your chihuahua breathes fire? Being able to introduce an all-new group of characters in Monster Pets who are just as funny and weird as the Drac Pack was an absolute blast. We hope audiences enjoy the short and look forward to seeing the monster pets make an appearance in the upcoming Hotel Transylvania: Transformania!”
Monster Pets producer Christian Roedel adds, “The Hotel Transylvania franchise is all about family, and it has been an honor to work alongside our newest members Jennifer and Derek, the amazing directing duo who will take the reins for this exciting new chapter.”
The makers also share their excitement for the upcoming final chapter of the franchise, Hotel Transylvania: Transformania.
