UglyDolls is a new animated musical film about a crew of quirky dolls. It was inspired by the popular toy line of the same name. In the movie, the dolls live in Uglyville, a colorful place where flaws are celebrated. But Moxy, a confident and curious pink doll, wants to learn about life outside her hometown. She and her friends decide to leave Uglyville in search of adventure.

They soon discover a town called Perfection, a flawless place that is home to conventionally beautiful dolls. There, they meet Lou, the ruler of Perfection. Lou will do anything to get the UglyDolls to leave his town.

Singer KELLY CLARKSON (pictured) stars as the voice of Moxy. She told TFK Kid Reporter Minoo Jang that she was moved by the film’s message of self-acceptance. She hopes it will help kids see beauty in imperfection. “We’re under construction, all of us,” Clarkson says. “No one’s perfect, and that’s okay. Everybody counts and everybody’s somebody. And that matters.” UglyDolls arrives in theaters May 3.
