Despite theaters staying open regardless of the current global pandemic, production companies are not entirely sure about releasing their movies right now, and Sony Pictures is no exception.
After the confirmation that Venom: Let There Be Carnage would be delayed by three weeks, another film could have a worse future. Hotel Transylvania: Transformania might not make it to theaters and be released directly on streaming.

The Hotel Transylvania franchise has had a great reception by both children and adult audiences and is currently awaiting the release of the fourth film. It was initially planned to be released in theaters in April 2021 and is currently scheduled for October 1.
According to Deadline, Hotel Transylvania 4 may not make it to theaters, as Sony Pictures may take the film directly to a streaming platform.
So far, this change is not official, but it should be announced soon, depending on the performance of other upcoming films.

According to the official synopsis, the roles will be reversed: when Van Helsing‘s mysterious invention, the “Monsterfication Ray,” is used out of control, Count Dracula and his monster friends are all turned into humans, and Johnny becomes a monster!
With this switch of bodies, Dracula, without his powers, and an exuberant Johnny, loving life as a monster, will have to team up and go around the world to find a cure before it’s too late – and before they drive each other crazy.
