Joe Jonas Gets `Kraken’ in “Hotel Transylvania 3: A Monster Vacation”

Movie, Hotel Transylvania 3: A Monster Vacation, Joe Jonas Gets `Kraken' in "Hotel Transylvania 3: A Monster Vacation"

Pop superstar Joe Jonas lends his voice to The Kraken in Columbia Pictures’ adventure comedy Hotel Transylvania 3: A Monster Vacation (in Philippine cinemas August 22).

Kraken is the ginormous beast who welcomes Drac and his friends to the lost city of Atlantis, the monster version of Las Vegas.  He may look threatening, he is full of charm and a heck of a singer – he loves to carry a tune!

In the film, the monsters vacation’s final destination is the lost city of Atlantis.  “It’s our version of Vegas,” says producer Michelle Murdocca.  “From the depths of the ocean arises a massive kraken – and just when you think this is it, he breaks into a swing-a-ding-ding Sinatraesque song, courtesy of Joe Jonas.”

The kraken may look tough but underneath it all is the heart of a performer, so there’s no one better to welcome the monster cruise to Atlantis that him.  “He’s got a crooner vibe,” says Joe Jonas.  “The song `Party Time’ was a lot of fun to record – it’s a big swing routine.”

And when he needed a big band swing number, Jonas knew who to call.  “I reached out to my friend David Foster, who happened to be working with Michael Bublé at the time,” says Jonas.  A short while later, he got a call back. Foster and Bublé had written the song in a burst of inspiration and with Jonas’ voice in mind.
