'UglyDolls' trailer reveals Uglyville as a place where weird is celebrated and beauty is redefined
Red and yellow, black and white... all are precious and beautiful in Uglyville! Check out the new trailer to the fun, animated musical movie
STXfilms has released the trailer for its upcoming Kelly Asbury-directed animated musical movie, 'UglyDolls', and it is absolutely heartwarming. Based on the unique and beloved global plush toy phenomenon launched in 2001, the trailer reveals that the movie will be celebrating everything unusual, weird, and quirky. From big bloated eyes to stinking odors, nothing is truly ugly in Uglyville, the town where Moxy and her friends live.
Starring the voices of Kelly Clarkson, Nick Jonas, Janelle Monáe, Blake Shelton and Pitbull, the film will follow the free-spirited Moxy (Kelly Clarkson) and her UglyDolls friends who 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.
However, they are soon struck by disbelief when the stumble their way into Perfection, a land where everything is conventionally perfect. In Perfection, Moxy and her crew are subject to the manipulations of Lou (Nick Jonas), the perfect doll in charge of training recruits. Here, the UglyDolls will 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.
The film probably comes in the perfect era when the youth is rising against the orthodox norms of beauty and accepting beauty in all its forms. Leaning heavily towards body positivity, the film is set to celebrate the concepts of inclusivity and acceptance which form the basic morals of the millennial era. The film is set to release in theatres on May 10, 2019, and we cannot wait for its subtle take on unconventional beauty.
Also starring in the voice cast of UGLYDOLLS are Wanda Sykes, Emma Roberts, Gabriel Iglesias, and Wang Leehom. Watch the trailer below:
