We've moved past the Civil War and Reformation now and jumped the proverbial pond!

Did you know the original Dracula (the book by IRISH author Bram Stoker) came out in 1892?

Yup it did!

But we're screaming to present day, with the new release of Hotel Transylvania 2 on September 25th!

Seriously.

You heard my kid's scream when she saw the trailer for the first time and realized a sequel to one of her favorite movies was coming out, right?!

Drac’s pack is back for an all-new monster comedy adventure in Sony Pictures Animation's Hotel Transylvania 2

Everything seems to be changing for the better at Hotel Transylvania... Dracula’s rigid monster-only hotel policy has finally relaxed, opening up its doors to human guests. But behind closed coffins, Drac is worried that his adorable half-human, half-vampire grandson, Dennis, isn’t showing signs of being a vampire. So while Mavis is busy visiting her human in-laws with Johnny – and in for a major cultural shock of her own – “Vampa” Drac enlists his friends Frank, Murray, Wayne and Griffin to put Dennis through a “monster-in-training” boot camp. But little do they know that Drac’s grumpy and very old, old, old school dad Vlad is about to pay a family visit to the hotel. And when Vlad finds out that his great-grandson is not a pure blood – and humans are now welcome at Hotel Transylvania – things are going to get batty!

You didn't know it was coming?

Let's check out the Trailer:


Don't you just love how little Dennis has his Grandpa Drac's ears, but his dad Johnny's wild hair?

 And can't we all relate to how Grandpa has to come in and save the day? It speaks to how we parent differently, and how grandparents tend to have more patience and time too. Did you think you could ever take Ephesians 6 and use it to explain why Drac expects so much of Dennis?


Yup! Thanks to our friends at Sony Pictures, for a super duper Faith based discussion guide that you can use in the days after seeing the movie (betcha didn't see THAT coming did you?), to get your kids to open up and talk about different themes, like parenting, fear, thinking of themselves,  love, diversity, and being judgmental, that were in the movie, and showing bible verses to illustrate what God wishes of us! How cool is that?

Note for above guide:
In the frame above you can click the scroll bar on the right to preview all the pages, and then click the right ' Pop Out' button (with the arrow) in the top right of the scroll frame, and it will open in a new tab and you can print it. You're welcome!
