Featuring an all-star cast, the brand new trailer for STXFilms’ UglyDolls brings the beloved plush toy line to life for one epic adventure of self-discovery.

The new animated musical adventure stars the acting and singing talents of Kelly Clarkson, Nick Jonas, Janelle Monáe, Blake Shelton and Pitbull as characters residing in Uglyville, where weird is beautiful.

Clarkson plays the free-spirited character Moxy, who is featured in the trailer singing a song about confidence and looking/feeling great. In fact, all of the residents of Uglyville are completely and totally comfortable in their own skin until an adventure leads them to the Insitute of Perfection.

Check out the delightful and musically catchy first trailer for UglyDolls below.

The synopsis for the film reads as follows:

[row]”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 UglyDoll friends live every day in a whirlwind of bliss, letting their freak flags fly in a celebration of life and its endless possibilities.  The endearingly unique residents of Uglyville occasionally look to the sky above the town, where a new UglyDoll will appear and be embraced by the community.

Moxy (Kelly Clarkson) loves her square-peg life in this round-hole town, but her curiosity about all things leads her to wonder if there’s something – anything – on the other side of the mountain which nestles Uglyville.  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 (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.”[/row]

UglyDolls is directed by Robert Rodriguez and stars Emma Roberts, Janelle Monáe, Nick Jonas, Pitbull, Wanda Sykes, Kelly Clarkson, and Blake Shelton as well as Gabriel Iglesias, Wang Leehom, Bebe Rexha, Charli XCX, and Lizzo.

The film will be singing its way into theaters on May 10, 2019.
