It has been announced that an all new animated film based on Mariah Carey’s hit festive song is due to be released on DVD this Christmas.
The singer is executive producer on the film and narrates the film based on her hit song and best selling book which is now in production. It is due for release on DVD this Christmas.
When young Mariah (voiced by Breanna Yde) sees a darling little puppy named Princess at the pet store, she suddenly knows exactly what she wants for Christmas. 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?
The animated film will feature 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).
Talking about the news of the film Mariah Carey said: “I am thrilled to be able to bring the story of the song to new generations of families.”
One of the most popular Christmas songs of all time ‘All I want for Christmas is You’ has sold more than 14 million copies since it was originally released in 1994 and in 2016 it was the year’s most streamed festive single.
