3 Love Lessons I Learned from ‘Hotel Transylvania 3’

Hotel Transylvania appeals so much to young people, especially the young at heart (raises hand). With all the monster-human love stories we have in the film industry, the storyline is almost cliche; but the blend of monster and human world of Hotel Transylvania? We still hold it close to our hearts.

Mavis and Johnny proved their love could erase the walls keeping humans and monsters apart. They didn’t exactly enjoin both races into one world; but they did prove that when it comes to love, it doesn’t matter who or what you are. If you zing, you zing. And the zing does not choose a person or monster. It just happens. You don’t question it. You just follow it.

Hotel Transylvania always has a thing for how it presents love. Now, you’re in for a new ride with the new ‘Hotel Transylvania 3’. It voices some of the most obvious love lessons known to history. Well, you know what people say. Some of the most obvious things in life need to be stated.

3 Love Lessons I Learned from ‘Hotel Transylvania 3’

It’s Never Too Late to Fall in Love…Again.

Someone thought it was all over. “You only zing once”, so they say. Surprises – it’s the one thing love does better than anyone else.

You say you can’t avoid love? Well, you can’t avoid heartbreak, either. Regardless of what your past may be like, though, it’s never too late to fall in love again. The zing doesn’t always come; but when it does, you need to be ready to embrace it.

The world is a tricky place. Ambitions, friends, family, gimmicks – they seem to be the most important things in life. Don’t get us wrong. These are all equally important. However, we’d say love is the only thing worth fighting for.

Love Will Change You for the Better… But Only If You Let It.

It’s true what people say about love. It changes people, but only if they let it.

Someone in ‘Hotel Transylvania 3’ went hard as a rock when she zinged. She had good reasons. It was for family. It was for culture, tradition. However, it would have been one of her biggest mistakes in life. Just because your reasons are good doesn’t mean you are making the right choice. Lucky for her, it wasn’t too late. She could still make up for it.

We’re not always that lucky, though. Changes scare us, too; but changes can be good, especially if it’s a change perpetrated by love. Love can only move you forward, never sidewards or backwards.

You Don’t Get to Choose Who You Zing with.

We just love putting this out there, even for the second time. The creators already proved this point from the first Hotel Transylvania movie with Mavis and Johnny falling in love.

Well, it’s happening all over again in ‘Hotel Transylvania 3’ (but we’re not saying who or how). Why would they repeat things over and over again? Maybe they just can’t think of anything better. Maybe this sort of thing just happens so frequently in real life, they just can’t really resist. We never know, just like how we never know who we are going to fall in love with next.
