Most of the dolls in Uglyville live a happy life despite their imperfection. Uglyville is a place where being weird or strange is cool, and beauty more than what meets the eye.

When the adventurous Moxy wonders what's on the other side of the mountain where they live, she gathers together a group of her friends and they set out on an adventure to see what they can find. They discover the Institute of Perfection, where they meet Lou (Nick Jonas), a perfect boy doll with an attitude. He advises the Uglydolls to go home, but Moxy has more than a little moxie.

We all have a superhero inside us—it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. Billy Batson (Asher Angel), a streetwise 14-year-old foster kid, turns into the adult superhero Shazam (Zachary Levi) by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!, courtesy of an ancient wizard.

Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Mark Strong).
