Hotel Transylvania
, which comes to theatres on September 28, marks Tartakovsky’s theatrical directorial debut. Tartakovsky and Murdocca will discuss the animated film, take questions from the audience, and screen never-before-seen footage from the film.

For the Cartoon Network, Tartakovsky (pictured, right) developed four hit animated series between 1994 and 2010: Dexter’s Laboratory; Samurai Jack; Star Wars: Clone Wars; and Sym-Biotic Titan. He also served as a producer and director on Cartoon Network’s Emmy-winning series The Powerpuff Girls and as an animation director for The Powerpuff Girls: The Movie.  He is also co-creator of the Network’s Dial M For Monkey and Justice Friends.

The story — Hotel Transylvania is Dracula’s lavish “five-stake” resort, where monsters and their families can live it up, free to be the monsters they are without humans to bother them.

The film features the voices of Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Kevin James, Selena Gomez, Steve Buscemi, CeeLo Green, David Spade, Molly Shannon, and Fran Drescher.  It’s produced by Michelle Murdocca.  Executive producers are Adam Sandler and Robert Smigel.  Music by Mark Mothersbaugh.  Music Supervision by Liza Richardson.  Imagery and Animation by Sony Pictures Imageworks.
