Kelly Clarkson Joins Animated Film UGLYDOLLS

STXfilms, a division of Robert Simonds’ global, next-generation media company STX Entertainment, announced today that GRAMMY-Award winning Atlantic Records superstar Kelly Clarkson has signed on to star in its upcoming animated film UGLYDOLLS. Clarkson will voice act the character of “Moxy” and also perform original songs for the feature. With over 100 #1 Billboard hits and total worldwide sales of more than 25 million albums and 36 million singles, Clarkson is one of the most popular recording artists in the world. After appearing and winning as coach on the 14th season of The Voice, Clarkson will reclaim her red chair for the series' 15th season, premiering this fall.

“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,” said Adam Fogelson, Chairman of STXfilms.

In the film, Clarkson’s character 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.

“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,” said Clarkson.

Clarkson joins an UGLYDOLLS voice cast that also features fellow GRAMMY-Award winner Pitbull, as announced earlier this year.

Created as a plush toy line by David Horvath and Sun-Min Kim, the UglyDoll brand quickly gained a cult following around the world and was named Toy of the Year by the Toy Industry Association in 2006. Beloved by children, teenagers and adults alike, UglyDoll characters are distinct for their endearing “ugliness,” in a wonderful “uglyverse” where differences are celebrated and embraced.

STXfilms will release UGLYDOLLS in theaters in 2019 as launch vehicle for STX Entertainment’s UglyDolls franchise. An animated kids series is also underway with a full series order from premium streaming service Hulu, and Hasbro joined early on as global master toy licensee. The original motion picture soundtrack will be released by Atlantic Records.
