June 19 (UPI) -- The fourth and final installment in Sony's Hotel Transylvania film franchise will be released in theaters Oct. 1 instead of July 23 as planned.

Deadline and Variety reported the schedule change Friday.


The movie's Twitter page was updated to say it would be released: "This Fall. Only in Theaters."

The voice cast for Hotel Transylvania: Transformania includes Selena Gomez, Andy Samberg, Kathryn Hahn, Keegan-Michael Key, Steve Buscemi, David Spade, Asher Blinkoff, Brad Abrell, Fran Drescher, Jim Gaffigan and Molly Shannon.

Brian Hull is taking over the role of vampire Drac from Adam Sandler.

"Reunite with your favorite monsters for an all-new adventure that presents Drac with his most terrifying task yet. When Van Helsing's mysterious invention, the 'Monsterfication Ray,' goes haywire, Drac and his monster pals are all transformed into humans, and Johnny becomes a monster!" a synopsis said.

"In their new mismatched bodies, Drac, stripped of his powers, and an exuberant Johnny, loving life as a monster, must team up and race across the globe to find a cure before it's too late, and before they drive each other crazy. With help from Mavis and the hilariously human Drac Pack, the heat is on to find a way to switch themselves back before their transformations become permanent."


The releases of many movies have been delayed or moved to streaming services during the past year because of the coronavirus pandemic.
