Unconventionality rules in UglyDolls, a new animated family adventure based on the famous toy brand. Directed by Kelly Asbury (Gnomeo and Juliet, Shrek 2), UglyDolls features original songs by Kelly Clarkson, Janelle Monáe, Blake Shelton, Nick Jonas and Pitbull. The film will be released next summer via STX Entertainment. Here’s what it looks like:
In the adorably different town of Uglyville, the free-spirited Moxy (Kelly Clarkson) and her UglyDolls friends confront what it means to be different, struggle with their desire to be loved, and ultimately discover that you don’t have to be perfect to be amazing because who you truly are is what matters most.
In a recent interview with USA today Kelly Clarkson said “Uglydolls is a giant metaphor on life. “We all come in different shapes, sizes and personalities, but with our own individuality.”
Created as a plush toy line by David Horvath and Sun-Min Kim, the UglyDoll brand quickly gained a cult following around the world. Beloved by children, teenagers and adults alike, UglyDoll characters are distinct for their endearing “ugliness,” in a wonderful “uglyverse” where differences are celebrated and embraced.
