UglyDolls is about to hit theaters and the star-studded cast couldn't be more excited. Kelly Clarkson, Nick Jonas, Pitbull, and Janelle Monáe make up a small portion of the amazing cast, which also includes Charli XCX, Lizzo, Bebe Rexha, and more. While the film itself is funny and heartwarming, working with each other was truly the icing on the cake for the talented cast.
"I was really honored to be part of this incredible cast," Nick Jonas says in a new UglyDolls featurette. "We have Blake Shelton. I mean, come on. Just the best."
"I think my favorite part about the film is the casting. You might not find us all in a room any other moment," Kelly Clarkson adds. "The whole movie celebrates people that are different."
As for Janelle and Pitbull, they're both delighted to see so many artists from a variety of backgrounds be able to come together for one amazing project. "It's great to see what happens when we come together," Janelle explains. "We're all from completely different backgrounds."
"Everybody here is respected in their fields. So for us to come together, we all bring our own powers," Pitbull says, perfectly capturing how the star-studded casts feels about being a part of UglyDolls.
UglyDolls takes place in the adorably different town of Uglyville, where weirdness is celebrated, strangeness is special and beauty is embraced as more than meets the eye. After traveling to the other side of a mountain, Moxy and her UglyDoll friends discover Perfection. This new town has more conventional dolls who receive training before entering the real world to find the love of a child. Soon, the UglyDolls learn what it means to be different and ultimately realize they don't have to be perfect to be amazing.
As if UglyDolls couldn't get better, the upcoming animated film features all new, original songs from the multi-talented cast. Yes, please!
UglyDolls hits theaters on May 3, 2019! Who's excited?
