More Monsters Revealed in New Images from Hotel Transylvania

Sony Pictures Animation gave us our first look at one of the monsters in director Genndy Tartakovsky's (Samurai Jack, Star Wars: The Clone Wars) upcoming 3-D family comedy, Hotel Transylvania, by releasing concept art depicting Dracula (voiced by Adam Sandler) on Halloween of last year. One week later, the studio followed up the Dracula concept art with the release of a fully-rendered image of Dracula's daughter, Mavis, when it was announced that Miley Cyrus would be providing the "teen" (she's 118) vampire's voice (Cyrus was later replaced by Selena Gomez).
Now, several more of the monsters that will be haunting the halls of Dracula's Hotel Transylvania — where the motto is "human-free since 1898" — have been revealed in a pair of new promotional images for the movie.
Here's the synopsis:
Welcome to the Hotel Transylvania, Dracula’s (Sandler) lavish five-stake resort, where monsters and their families can live it up, free from meddling from the human world. But here’s a little known fact about Dracula: he is not only the Prince of Darkness; he is also a dad. Over-protective of his teenage daughter, Mavis (Gomez), Dracula fabricates tales of elaborate dangers to dissuade her adventurous spirit. As a haven for Mavis, he opens the Hotel Transylvania, where his daughter and some of the world's most famous monsters — Frankenstein (Kevin James) and his bride, the Mummy (Cee Lo Green), the Invisible Man (David Spade), a family of werewolves (Steve Buscemi and Molly Shannon), and more — can kick back in safety and peace. For Drac, catering to all of these legendary monsters is no problem — but his world could come crashing down when one ordinary guy (Andy Samberg) stumbles on the hotel and takes a shine to Mavis.
