Mariah Carey’s Christmas Classic Being Turned Into An Animated Movie
It’s hard to get through the holiday season without hearing Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” about a thousand times, and next year you’ll also be seeing it as well.
The singer announced on Twitter that the popular Christmas song is being turned into an animated movie. Carey will narrate the film, which will be based on her 2015 children's book of the same name.
Henry Winkler, Lacey Chabert, Phil Morris, Laya Hayes and Keiko Agena are on board to voice characters in the film with 14-year-old actress Breanna Yde taking on the role of young Mariah.
So far there’s no word on when exactly the flick will hit theaters, although the trailer does promise it will be out “Holiday 2017.”
