Kelly Clarkson, Nick Jonas, Pitbull and Janelle Monáe are among the performers lending their talents to the new film based on the popular PrettyUgly plush toy line.
Directed by Kelly Asbury and based on the plush toy line by David Horvath and Sun-Min Kim, UglyDolls is an animated musical about embracing who you are and celebrating what makes you different.
Moxy (Kelly Clarkson) and her friends reside in Uglyville, a place where imperfect dolls go after being discarded by The Factory. But when Moxy decides to venture into The Big World and find her perfect kid, she and her friends encounter the perfect — and mean — preppy doll, Lou (Nick Jonas). Told by Lou that they’re too ugly to be wanted, Moxy and her friends work to prove Lou wrong, and discover the beauty in individuality.
Alongside Clarkson and Jonas, Janelle Monáe stars as the lonely and sympathetic perfect doll Mandy, Blake Shelton voices Uglyville’s mayor and mentor Ox, Wanda Sykes is the culinary mastermind Wage and Pitbull is Moxy’s closest friend, Ugly Dog.
