A lot of people, just like us, have been waiting for the last movie of the franchise to come out. We have seen the characters evolve and I think we all want to know what is going to happen next.
About the movie
The 4th installment of the franchise, Hotel Transylvania: Transformania dives into the relationship between Dracula and his goofy, human son-in-law Johnny (Samberg). As Dracula plans to retire and gift his beloved Hotel Transylvania to his daughter Mavis (Gomez), he changes his mind at the last minute -worried that Johnny will ruin what he has built. Disappointed that Dracula still doesn’t embrace Johnny as a member of his family, Johnny seeks help from Van Helsing (from third film) and successfully turns himself into a monster. In the wake of transforming himself, however, Johnny changes Dracula and his band of monster side-kicks –Blobby, Frankenstein, Mummy, Wayne, and the Invisible Man – into humans. Dracula and Johnny set out together to find a secret crystal that will help turn them back accordingly, while learning to rely on and appreciate each other along the way. Written and directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, this film brings all of the beloved Hotel Transylvania characters together for a funny, heartfelt journey with a positive message for the whole family.

Did we like it?
We had a movie night enjoying some s'mores and hot chocolate and my niece and nephew could not stop laughing. It is a bitter sweet moment watching the franchise end, but we have enjoyed every single movie a lot and the memories of watching each one as a family will be always with us.
The movie is funny and cute, it has a great message of the importance of accepting change and the importance of family. The animation is great and the gave a great ending to the character development. Although I think they did leave the door open for spin offs.
