Good morning! I so love summer time! The late nights, quality time, fun activities, watching movies as a family & just being together. It’s ah-mazing! Annnnnnd this summer we are so super excited about Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation coming to theaters everywhere on Friday, July 13th! Eek! We can’t wait to see it! :) In this movie (from Sony Pictures Animation), you’ll join your favorite monster family as they decide to go on a summer vacation aboard a fancy monster cruise ship. Drac wants to take a summer vacation from providing everyone else’s vacation at the hotel. Everything goes swimmingly for Drac’s Pack as the monsters take part in all of the fun things aboard the ship. From playing monster volleyball to taking exotic excursions, and even catching up on their moon tans. haha! Buuuuuuut their dream vacation almost turns into a nightmare when Mavis realizes Drac has fallen for the mysterious captain of the ship, Ericka. She hides a dangerous secret that could destroy all of monsterkind. Eek! You want to see how it ends now! haha! You’ll have to wait until it comes to theaters! ;) I do have a special offer to tell you about from Fandango where you can get a free ticket to see the show! So you’ll want to keep reading for that!
