Rapper, Pitbull, will lend his talents to the forthcoming animated feature-length film, UglyDolls.
Pitbull – whose real name is Armando Christian Perez – will write and perform an original song for the film.
The film is based on the the plush toy line of the same name, and will be directed by Robert Rodriguez, scheduled for release in 2019.
Perez will be involved in all aspects of the release across the STXtv, STXdigitial and STXsurrreal VR platforms.
“It's truly an honour to have the opportunity to work alongside the STX team and be involved with UglyDolls,” Perez said. “The brand takes a fun approach to universal messages no matter colour, culture or creed. These are themes I am passionate about, and our team is very excited about this partnership,”
Uglydoll's have previously been featured in other children's films such as Mr Magorium's Wonder Emporium, Enchanted and The Smurfs.
