Mariah Carey’s iconic holiday romp of a song “All I Want For Christmas Is You” is about to become an animated film.
Carey made the announcement for the film, which will be released during the 2017 holiday season, on Twitter:

“There are traditions we can’t live without. The tree, the stockings, the presents, and Mariah Carey,” the attached trailer teases.
We couldn’t agree more, Mariah.
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. Yes, “Heartbreaker” was of course THE jam that caused women everywhere to want to dance around movie theaters in crop tops in 1999, but it pales in comparison to the glory of “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”
“All I Want For Christmas Is You” is romance, tiny Santa-themed dresses, happiness, “Love Actually.” It’s only natural that it be made into a film.
We already know a cartoon Mariah is purely delightful (courtesy of that impossibly perfect “Heartbreaker” video) so we’re waiting with bated breath for this film’s release.
