Mariah Carey's 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' is becoming an animated movie
Mariah Carey classic “All I Want For Christmas Is You” is being turned into an animated holiday movie, the singer revealed on her Twitter account Tuesday morning.
Although Carey didn’t tweet much information about the Universal film, she did post a trailer that features her lounging on a sofa petting a dog.
“I don’t want a lot for Christmas,” she says in the clip, quoting her own song. “There’s just one thing I need.” By the end of the video, the dog is gone, and she’s blowing a kiss to the camera.
The 1994 hit was previously turned into a children’s book released in 2015. Carey is credited as the author while Colleen Madden contributed illustrations for the book, which follows a young girl who wants a puppy for Christmas — the same kind we see a real-life version of in the movie’s teaser.

Carey co-wrote “All I Want For Christmas Is You” with “My Heart Will Go On” producer and longtime collaborator Walter Afanasieff for 1994’s Merry Christmas. Since then, the single’s become a holiday staple and covered by artists like Ariana Grande, Kelly Clarkson, and Justin Bieber.
All I Want For Christmas Is You does not have an exact release date yet, though a press release states the movie will be released on Blu-ray, DVD, digital HD, and on-demand “this holiday season.”
