Fran Drescher talks “Hotel Transylvania 3”, teases possible “The Nanny” reboot
(NEW YORK) — Fran Drescher, “The Nanny” herself, stopped by Good Morning America Thursday to dish on the new animated movie, Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation.
Drescher, who voices Eunice Stein — the wife of Kevin James’ Frank Stein — in the film, said she is “delighted” to be part of the franchise.
“I don’t think that there’s an animated film besides ours that has put together such a great collection of comic actors that Adam Sandler assembled,” she said. “[I]t’s genuinely funny. It appeals to the whole family, or if you don’t have kids like me but you like animated films like me, this is the one for you.”
In this day and age with reboots of Will & Grace, Murphy Brown, and other beloved shows, can fans expect to see a reboot of Drescher’s hit The Nanny, which first aired 25 years ago? .
“I’m not going to say no,” Drescher said, “but it’s not on my immediate radar because Peter [producer Peter Marc Jacobson] and I are working on something very exciting that I think the fans would be thrilled about, but I’m not at liberty to announce it.”
In 2000, Drescher learned she was diagnosed with uterine cancer. She happily recognized that Thursday was her 18-year anniversary of wellness as she sat before GMA’s live studio audience.
“Ironically, [the anniversary is] always on the longest day of sunlight — isn’t that poetic?” she asked to applause. I’m so pleased to be sitting next to a fellow thriver,” Drescher said to co-anchor Robin Roberts, who’s also a cancer survivor.
Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, which also stars the voice talents of Sandler, Kevin James, David Spade, Molly Shannon, Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez, and more, hits theaters July 13.
