Coming Soon reports that Kelly Clarkson has joined the cast of STXFilms’ upcoming animated feature UglyDolls, joining the previously announced Pitbull. She will voice Moxy and provide original songs for the film.

Here’s a synopsis: Moxy 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.

STXFilms Chairman Adam Fogelson said: “Kelly Clarkson has been a role model to millions of fans since the beginning of her momentous career. We are beyond thrilled that for her next project she chose to do UglyDolls after she saw our character designs, animatics and set pieces, which she loved. We look forward to collaborating with an artist of Kelly’s exceptional talent and versatility.

Clarkson added: “The UglyDolls‘ universal message celebrating our differences and individuality really resonates with me, and when STX showed me how incredible UglyDolls will look and feel, I jumped at being part of that world. I can’t wait to start working with the team at STX, the cast and filmmakers.

The UglyDoll plush toy line was created by David Horvath and Sun-Min Kim and was named Toy of the Year by the Toy Industry Association in 2006. UglyDolls are known for their “ugliness” in an “uglyverse” where differences are celebrated. The film adaptation will arrive in 2019. An animated companion series will stream on Hulu. Hasbro has joined as a global master toy licensee. The soundtrack will be released by Atlantic Records.
