Universal Pictures has announced that production is now underway on Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is You, a CGI animated feature film based upon the singer’s classic holiday song and bestselling book, which is set to hit DVD this festive season from Universal 1440 Entertainment.
Here’s the official synopsis and teaser trailer:
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?
“Like the song itself, Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is You is destined to become an enduring family holiday classic,” said Glenn Ross, general manager and executive vice president, Universal 1440 Entertainment. “It is packed with family fun, holiday spirit, poignant moments – and of course, Mariah Carey!”
Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is You is directed by Guy Vasilovich (The Fox and the Hound) from a script by Temple Mathews (The Little Mermaid 2: Return to the Sea) and features the voices of Mariah Carey, Breanna Yde, Henry Winkler, Phil Morris, Laya Hayes and Keiko Agena.
