13 years ago, Mariah Carey released what would be a Christmas classic, ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You.’ The song is now a top 10 Christmas song of all time and pretty hard to escape during the holiday season.
Well, on Tuesday (03.21), Mariah took to social media to announce that an animated film adaption of the song is in the works.
I am thrilled to be able to bring the story of my favorite Christmas song to new generations of families with my upcoming new animated movie, Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You. You’re the first to hear about this exciting news! Don’t forget to follow @AllIWantMovie for more updates. #AllIWantMovie
Carey is a boss when it comes to cashing in during the Christmas season, and not only on the music side. In 2015 she directed and starred in ‘A Christmas Melody,’ a Hallmark-esque live action movie based off of her Christmas album.
It would have been great to see a live action version of ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You,’ but an animated one will work just fine.
