With ‘Hotel Transylvania 2‘ FINALLY being released on DVD and Blu-Ray next week, we managed to have a natter with actual Selena Gomez who told us all about her role in the movie voicing the character Mavis.
Selena tells us that even though her character Mavis is now older and also a mum, she’s still the same sweet girl that we saw in the first ‘Hotel Transylvania’ movie: “She’s adventurous and she has a lot of spark in her. In the first film, she finally got a grip on what she wanted, and her dad was supportive. Now, in this movie, she’s 125 years old, married, with a child, so it’s a different phase of life for her, but she still has that same Mavis feel. She’s still Daddy’s girl. The added responsibilities are bringing out the best in her.”
“The thing I love about ‘Hotel Transylvania’ is Dracula brings everyone together under one roof. The characters are an extended family, whether they’re Frankenstein, or the Wolfgang, and I think that’s sweet and endearing,” she continued.Speaking of her character’s son Dennis, she says: “He’s an adorable baby, and they’re trying to figure out if he is or isn’t a monster. The movie is about being okay with that, no matter which way it turns out. Drac has a full-on need to be in control of everything – that’s a protective quality that we love about him, but it can also be overbearing. Drac is trying to figure it out – he wants Dennis to feel like he’s part of the family, but maybe not doing it in the best way. The movie is about Drac learning to embrace those differences, to support and love him without trying to force things that he shouldn’t.”
‘Hotel Transylvania 2′ is out on Digital HD, Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray & DVD now
