A new original movie based on Uglydolls is slated for release in theaters.
Uglydolls, a popular toy line from Pretty Ugly LLC, will be getting a new movie based on the franchise. The original animated movie is expected to hit theaters in May 2019.
This film will be strategically leveraged to launch STX Entertainment’s family and animated division. This has been planned for some time now and this seems like the perfect opportunity for the company. STX Entertainment is known for creating Uglydolls animated short films.
Robert Rodriguez, director of Sin City and From Dusk Till Dawn, was officially announced as the director for the Uglydolls animated motion picture. The movie’s tagline will be “Things are about to get Ugly,” which is sure to excite fans.
David Horvath, from Pretty Ugly LLC, is the inventor of the Uglydolls. Interestingly, the Uglydolls are incredibly popular in Asia. At this time, there is no news on whether this entertainment will be launched around the world, as Asia would seem like a great market to launch in, given the impressive reception of the toy.
