After venturing out into a "perfect" world, a motley band of misfit dolls winds up learning to accept themselves and celebrate their unique differences, despite fierce opposition from their so-called flawless rivals.

Check out the new official trailer for the upcoming animated musical comedy "UglyDolls," which boasts a voice cast of recording artists and pop singers, including the likes of Kelly Clarkson, Nick Jonas, Janelle Monae, Blake Shelton, and Pitbull with Bebe Rexha, Charli XCX, and Lizzo.

Inspired by the popular plush toy brand of the same name, the animated film follows a happy-go-lucky UglyDoll named Moxy (voiced by Clarkson) who leads a group of fellow discarded plush dolls as they discover a place called the Institution of Perfection. Once there, they find themselves competing against some of the most flawless dolls in the world, who also happen to be some of the most arrogant.

Featuring original music performed by the main voice cast (Clarkson, Jonas, Monae, Shelton, and Pitbull), "UglyDolls" is directed by veteran animation filmmaker Kelly Asbury, whose credits include "Shrek 2," "Smurfs: The Lost Village," and "Gnomeo & Juliet."

Co-starring Wanda Sykes, Emma Roberts, Gabriel Iglesias, and Wang Leehom, "UglyDolls" is heading into theaters May 3rd.

synopsis:
In the adorably different town of Uglyville, weird is celebrated, strange is special and beauty is embraced as more than simply meets the eye. Here, the free-spirited Moxy and her UglyDolls friends live every day in a whirlwind of bliss, letting their freak flags fly in a celebration of life and its endless possibilities, occasionally looking to the sky, where a new UglyDoll will appear and be embraced by the community.

Moxy (Kelly Clarkson) loves her square-peg life in this round-hole town, but her curiosity about all things leads her to wonder if there's something -- anything -- on the other side of the mountain which nestles Uglyville. Moxy gathers a group of her closest friends and sets off to find what's on the other side. They discover another world -- Perfection -- a town where more conventional dolls are trained in protocols before they graduate and are sent to the "real" world to find the love of a child.

In Perfection, Moxy and her crew are subject to the manipulations of Lou (Nick Jonas), the perfect doll in charge of training recruits. Here, the UglyDolls will 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.
