The country star will voice the character Ox in the animated film 'Uglydolls,' which is scheduled for release in May 2019.


Blake Shelton is moving from the small screen to a major motion picture! The country star will voice the character Ox in the animated film Uglydolls, which is scheduled for release in May 2019. Shelton will also perform original songs for the upcoming movie.


Shelton joins previously announced co-stars Kelly Clarkson, Nick Jonas, Pitbull, Wanda Sykes and Gabriel Iglesias in Uglydolls, which is based on the Uglydolls toy brand that features “characters who are distinct for their endearing ‘ugliness’ in a wonderful ‘uglyverse’ where differences are celebrated and embraced.” The country star posted a video to Twitter announcing the exciting news, “I just wanted to hop on here and tell you something very special. That is that I am Ox, the mayor of Uglyville,” Blake laughs. “Not exactly but that’s my characters name in the new STX Entertainment animated feature.” He then introduced fans to his character via his real life toy. “This is Ox, the mayor of Uglyville. He’s going to sound a lot like me because it’s going to be my voice,” Blake added. “It’s coming out in May. You guys go see it. Love ya!”

According to the movie’s 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 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.”


STXfilms will release Uglydolls in theaters May 10, 2019 and an animated kids series is also underway with a full series order from Hulu.
