Twitch streamer Tyler “Ninja” Blevins will be making his animated film debut in the fourth installment of the Hotel Transylvania franchise, Hotel Transylvania: Transformania.
Blevins currently has 17 million Twitch followers, and according to Variety, he will play the character named Party Monster.
Hotel Transylvania: Transformania is directed by Jennifer Kluska and Derek Drymon (first-time movie directors) and written by Amos Vernon & Nunzio Randazzo and Genndy Tartakovsky.
Drac and his monster buddies are back again but with a twist. When Van Helsing’s (Jim Gaffigan) strange invention, the ‘Monsterification Ray,’ malfunctions, Drac (Brian Hull, replacing Adam Sandler) and his monster friends are all transformed into a human, all the while Johnny (Andy Samberg) gets transformed into a monster (crazy, right?). With Drac, stripped of his powers and an enthusiastic Johnny, who is just loving life as a monster, must partner up and race across the world to discover a cure before it’s too late. With the help from Mavis (Selena Gomez) and Drac’s monster friends turned human, they race to transform themselves back before it becomes permanent.
Lending their voices to the movie also stars Kathryn Hahn (WandaVision), Steve Buscemi (Boardwalk Empire), David Spade (Joe Dirt), Brad Abrell (Chicken Little), Fran Drescher (The Nanny), Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele), and Molly Shannon (Promising Young Woman).
Blevins can be seen most recently in Ryan Reynolds’ action-comedy Free Guy as himself. He even starred as the “Ice Cream” in the second season of Fox’s reality music competition show The Masked Singer.
Hotel Transylvania: Transformania is expected to be released on Prime Video on January 14.
