If you're one of the millions of people who annually blasts Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You" as soon as December 1 hits, prepare yourself for the 2017 holiday season: The iconic Christmas song is becoming an animated movie. If you guessed an animated movie based on her best-selling song, well, then you'd be right. Carey announced the Universal Studios picture through a video teaser on Twitter. While there have been no announcements for the film's release date, fans can add this to their list of films to see during the holiday season.
It will mark Mariah's second festive film, as the Hero singer previously appeared in 2015 small screen movie A Christmas Melody alongside Mean Girls actress Lacey Chabert.
"All I Want For Christmas Is You" is romance, tiny Santa-themed dresses, happiness, "Love Actually".
Since we know it's impossible to get this song out of your head once you've heard even a snippet of it, let's go ahead and take a break to listen to it in full before we proceed. But she must prove that she can pet-sit Jack, a scraggly rascal of a dog who turns Mariah and her family's holiday preparations upside down.
Let's face it, no matter what time of year that you're listening to it, "All I Want For Christmas Is You" is unequivocally the best song Carey has ever produced.
While the film's plot details remain unknown, the book's prominence in the clip as well as the use of a dog similar to the cover art indicates that it will serve as the basis for the upcoming feature.
