Hotel Transylvania on TFX: which actors dub the monsters?

On the occasion of the school holidays, TFX is broadcasting the animated film Hotel Transylvania this evening. Discover the French vocal cast of this success from Sony Pictures Animation studios.

Huge success when it was released in theaters in February 2013 (the film totaled 358 million dollars in international revenue for an estimated budget of 85 million), Hotel Transylvania is broadcast tonight on TFX. The movie Genndy Tartakovsky takes place at Hotel Transylvania, owned by Count Dracula, where monsters and their families can live in peace away from humans. For the birthday of his daughter Mavis, who is celebrating her 118th birthday, Dracula invites the most famous monsters in the world to party but it was in counting on the impromptu arrival of a human who will quickly befriend with Dracula’s daughter.

In the original version, Adam Sandler, Selena Gomez, Andy Samberg, Kevin James and Steve Buscemi lend their voices to the monstrous characters from Genndy Tartakovsky’s film. But have you recognized the French voices?

If you are a fan of Adam Sandler – and watch his films in French – you will have recognized the tone of voice of Serge Faliu. This actor and dubbing comedian is Sandler’s regular French voice. He dubbed it in over 34 films. During the graphic creation of the character of Dracula, the vocal performance of Adam Sandler had a direct influence: “Thanks to the way Adam plays the character, Dracula is really imposing, but he can also be very quiet and very calm. And it shows in his physical appearance. “ explains producer Michelle Murdocca. It therefore seemed logical to keep the same range of voices and to offer Adam Sandler’s official voice actor to take over the role. A role that Serge Faliu will resume in the 3rd part after being replaced by Kad Merad in the second film of the saga.
