Genre: Animation, Family, Monster High,

Rated: Not rated

This is taken right from the Monster High Wiki on this movie since they said it much better than anyway I tried, “A large part of the Monster High student body chooses to catch the new Vampire Majesty movie before classes one day. Draculaura (daughter of Dracula) is among them, even though she openly disapproves of the inaccuracy of the Vampire Majesty series and considers its leading actress, Veronica Von Vamp, a hack. Her friends show her some patience and allow her to tell them the true story of the Vampire Court in Transylvania, which she grew up amidst. Draculaura enthusiastically explains that the vampires find their leader by listening to the Vampire’s Heart, a magic artifact that can locate the rightful ruler and lights up in their presence. She adds that the Vampire’s Heart has failed to lead the vampires to their new queen for four centuries and counting, though. Her friends agree that story is better than the one of the Vampire Majesty movies.”

Meanwhile in Transvilanya, Lord Stoker, who is supposed to be looking for the long lost vampire queen hasn’t really been looking as he enjoyed the power without the queen. After much pressure form the vampire court he decided to make Draculaura the queen planning on manipulating her to keep the power he enjoys and to make it so vampires do not interact with other monsters. Draculaura quickly discover Lord Stoker is up to no good and the ghouls aim to spoil his evil plans to ruin the world of monster equality that they love. They soon learn that Draculaura’s friend, who is also Stoker’s niece, Elissabat ran away when she stole the Vampire’s Heart from her uncle to hid it from him.  She left clues so the girls go on a world adventure to find the real Vampire’s Heart and the true queen of the vampires. They travel to Londoom (London), New Gorelans (New Orleans), and Hauntlywood (Hollywood) trying to find the Vampire Heart. As always new friends are made and dreams achieved!

Major them of this movie is to think beyond yourself and think of others. The typical lesson of being true to yourself is  is off course involved but not as heavily emphasized in this movie as it is in the other movies.

I love the Ygor character in this movie! He is the assistance to Lord Stoker and very much comic relief in this movie. His dialogue is perfect! “I haven’t lost my mind, I still keep it in this little jar.” All he wants to do this entire movie is see his first boo-vie.

Another thing that I love is the involvement of the Twilight series on our pop culture. Though personally not a fan of this franchise I thought it was a fun touch of our reality in this world. Team Edweird all the way! Not really but that gives you an idea of how the conversation goes. And of course the men have no idea who is who thinking they all look a like. It is funny. Especially when the girls back at Monster High decide to have cute court to determine which vampire in the Vampire Majesty is the cutest.

Fun verbiage from this movie: Edweird, scritage, boo wor photo frights_zpshxejcrzc.pngld, Tower of Londoom, New Goreleans, boo-vies, William Spookspear, Scareantino, and clawsome
