The country music superstar will loom large in a family-friendly film inspired by the popular toy brand.
Things are about to get ugly for Blake Shelton.
The country music superstar and current C&I cover guy has signed on to join Kelly Clarkson, Nick Jonas, Pitbull, Wanda Sykes and Gabriel Iglesiasas as a voice talent for UglyDolls, the STXfilms animated feature set for a May 10, 2019 release. Shelton will voice act and sing original songs as Ox, the unofficial Mayor of Uglyville.
According to a STXfilms press release: “Unconventionality rules in UglyDolls, the new animated family adventure based on the beloved toy brand. In the adorably different town of Uglyville, the free-spirited 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.”
“Blake is one of country music's most talented and highly regarded artists,” said Adam Fogelson, Chairman of STXfilms, “and his signature wit and infectious charisma lend themselves perfectly to the character of Ox, who fancies himself a de facto Mayor of the UglyDolls.
“Blake joins an incredible line-up of artists already announced on this project, including his friend and colleague Kelly Clarkson, with whom he has undeniable chemistry that is as genuine as it is hilarious.”
