Uglydoll to Become Animated Film

The Uglydoll franchise is set to reach a wider audience via a new animated film by Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures. Chris Meledandri, the chief of Illumination Entertainment, saw appeal in the unique Uglydoll design that attracts multiple age groups. The film will be produced by Meledandri and executive produced by husband-and-wife team and Uglydoll creators, David Horwath and Sun-Min Kim. The film marks the beginning of plans for the Uglydoll franchise to eventually break into a larger range of media.
