Kelly Clarkson is lending her vocal talents to an upcoming animated movie, UglyDolls.
The movie is based on the dolls of the same name that flip the idea of “ugliness”. The brand purposely uses the term “ugly” to celebrate differences.
According to Variety, the film follows the journey of five dolls who struggle with feeling unloved and different. Their adventures help them find their sense of self-worth and beauty. Clarkson will be voicing Moxy, one of the main characters. The singer is also planning on performing original songs for the movie.
“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,” Clarkson wrote in a press release. “I can’t wait to start working with the team at STX, the cast and filmmakers.”
UglyDolls is set to release in 2019.
