UglyDolls trailer: Kelly Clarkson finds out it’s good to be different
It goes without saying nowadays that if you have a line of successful kids toys, it will eventually be turned into a movie of some kind. That's the case with UglyDolls, a new animated musical destined to make parents smile at their children's joy at the cinema, before being driven round the bend after the 143th replay at home. There's a whole 'Uglyverse' that could also be turned into movies if this turns out to be a success. You can check out the first trailer for UglyDolls above to see more.
In the adorably different town of Uglyville, weird is celebrated, strange is special and beauty is embraced as more than simply meets the eye. Here, the free-spirited Moxy and her UglyDolls friends live every day in a whirlwind of bliss, letting their freak flags fly in a celebration of life and its endless possibilities, occasionally looking to the sky, where a new UglyDoll will appear and be embraced by the community.
Moxy gathers a group of her closest friends and sets off to find what’s on the other side. They discover another world – Perfection – a town where more conventional dolls are trained in protocols before they graduate and are sent to the “real” world to find the love of a child. In Perfection, Moxy and her crew are subject to the manipulations of Lou, the perfect doll in charge of training recruits. Here, they must 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.
Kelly Asbury (Shrek 2, Gnomeo & Juliet) is directing, with a voice cast featuring Kelly Clarkson, Janelle Monáe, Wanda Sykes, Emma Roberts, Gabriel Iglesias, Nick Jonas, Blake Shelton and Pitbull.
UglyDolls opens in the UK on August 16th 2019.
