Mariah Carey’s festive song, “All I Want for Christmas Is You“, may have first hit airwaves 22 years ago, but you’ll still be hard-pressed to find a Christmas playlist that doesn’t count the familiar jingle among its tracks!
And now, the classic holiday tune will be adapted into an animated movie to be released during this year’s Xmas season.
The multihyphenate talent took to Twitter to announce the exciting news with a video teaser, saying: “My song is becoming a movie! You’re the first to hear about this exciting news!”

“Every holiday season, there are traditions we can’t live without,” the epic teaser begins.
Next up, the 46-year-old can be seen stretched out comfortably on a beige sofa. She’s dressed in a festive pajama onesie, with a whoppingly large amount of diamonds strewn across her neck. As a fireplace roars in the background, Mariah cuddles up closely to her pooch, adorably named Jill E. Beans.
While the plot of the film is yet to be announced, eagle-eyed fans have picked up on a clue hidden within the clip. Next to Mariah is the 2015 book adaptation of the song, which seems to indicate that it will serve as the basis for the upcoming flick.

The book, in case you missed it, told the story of a young girl whose Christmas wish is to get a new puppy — adorable! The film will be produced by Universal Pictures and will be available for purchase prior to Christmas Day.
We’re guessing that Mariah’s five-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, can’t wait for the film’s release!
