Drac’s Pack splashed down in a dazzling and colourful parade to kick off their monster vacation at the start of the 71st Cannes Film Festival at The Carlton Pier on May 7, 2018.
Following the aquatic procession and photo call along the French Riviera, director Genndy Tartakovsky debuted a new sneak peek from the upcoming summer film, “Hotel Transylvania 3: A Monster Vacation.” The movie opens in UK cinemas on 27 July, 2018.
The parade was quite the spectacle and featured many of the beloved characters from the film as well as some new additions, including the mysterious ship captain Ericka, who cruised into the festival in a series of colourful themed watercrafts. The monster parade also featured a boat-load of Gremlins, waterskiing Zombie Bellhops, and thrill-seeking Witches riding a precarious banana boat.
The event culminated with Tartakovsky pushing a coffin-shaped button to launch content from the film across the internet — an airplane sequence where the Gremlins take charge. Sony Pictures Animation’s sneak peek at “Hotel Transylvania 3: A Monster Vacation” debuted globally and simultaneously on YouTube and YouTube kids. Find it at HotelT3Cannes.com.
