Janelle Monae Joins ‘UglyDolls’ Voice Cast
Janelle Monae is starring in the STX animated movie “UglyDolls” and is expected to perform original songs for the film.
“UglyDolls” is the animated family adventure based on the beloved toy brand. In the adorably different town of Uglyville, the free-spirited Moxy and her UglyDolls pals 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.
Monae will soon be seen on screen in Robert Zemeckis’ “Welcome to Marwen,” co-starring Steve Carell, Merritt Wever, Leslie Mann, Diane Kruger, Eiza Gonzalez, and Gwendoline Christie. Her previous acting credits include “Moonlight” and “Hidden Figures.”
She recently released her critically-acclaimed third solo album, “Dirty Computer.”
Monae is repped by WME, manager Mikael Moore for Wondaland Management, and attorney Ziffren Brittenham.
