Looking to fill a hole in his life, 70-year-old retired widower Ben Whittaker (Robert De Niro) decides to challenge himself by starting a new job as a senior intern for an online fashion site. Over the course of working there, Ben becomes popular with his fellow, mostly younger, co-workers, including his boss and the founder of the company, Jules Ostin (Anne Hathaway).

Now Dracula’s (Adam Sandler) Hotel Transylvania is open to humans, things for him are changing for the better. Not everything is going right for him since Dracula is worried that his half-human grandson Dennis (Asher Blinkoff) hasn’t yet shown his vampire side. To help with this, Dracula asks his monster friends The Invisible Man (David Spade), The Mummy (Keegan-Michael Key), The Werewolf (Steve Buscemi), and Frankenstein (Kevin James) to help him train Dennis to be a monster while Mavis and Johnny (Selena Gomez and Andy Samberg) are away on vacation. Things for them then get more complicated when Dracula’s old-school father Vlad (Mel Brooks) pays an unexpected visit.
