Serial millionaire marrier and wedge heeled warbler Mariah Carey is making a return to film despite the atrocious abomination that was ‘Glitter’. But it seems that production is now underway on Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is You, a fun, and heartwarming holiday story brought to life in beautifully realized CGI animation (it says here).
Based on her best-selling Christmas song as well as the children’s book it inspired, the film features Mariah Carey’s iconic song All I Want for Christmas is You, and will be released on DVD this festive Christmas. One of the top-selling female musical artists in history, Mariah Carey also narrates and produces the film.
Originally released in 1994, the single “All I Want for Christmas is You” has sold more than 14 million copies. In 2016, more than two decades later, it was the year’s most streamed holiday single. Carey’s critically acclaimed picture book of the same name, published in 2015, has already sold over 750,000 copies.
Carey has sold over 200 million records and scored 18 Billboard Hot 100 #1 singles, more than any solo artist in history. She is the recipient of multiple Grammy Awards, 20 American Music Awards, Billboard’s Artist of the Decade Award, the World Music Award for World’s Bestselling Female Artist of the Millennium and BMI’s Icon Award and best of all has inspired the moniker of a porn star, ‘Mary Carey’.
The film features the voices of Mariah Carey (“Mariah Carey: Around the World,” Precious), Breanna Yde (“School of Rock”, “The Haunted Hathaways”), Henry Winkler (“Happy Days,” “Royal Pains”), Lacey Chabert (Mean Girls, “Party of Five”), Phil Morris (“Smallville,” “Seinfeld”), Laya Hayes (“Doc McStuffins,” Sister Code) and Keiko Agena (“Gilmore Girls,” Transformers: Dark of the Moon).
The story follows a young Mariah (voiced by Breanna Yde) who sees a darling little puppy named Princess at the pet store, she suddenly knows exactly what she wants for Christmas. (ahhh we see what they did there!!!!) But before her Christmas wish can come true, she must prove that she can pet-sit Jack, a scraggly rascal of a dog; in fact, the worst dog in the county! Naughty Jack turns Mariah and her family’s Christmas preparations upside down in hilarious ways. Will Jack dash Mariah’s hopes for her dream puppy? Or will Christmas reveal how love works in surprising and mysterious ways?
You may well be able to work out how this all ends – somehow we don’t think it will be with the dog being taken to a dog care centre and hey remember kids a dogs for life not just for Christmas – Alternatively you could have a turkey like everyone else!
