If they can turn a Disney ride into a wildly-successful movie franchise (Pirates of the Caribbean), why not another Christmas song? It worked for The Christmas Shoes, Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer – they were all songs first and movies second!
We’ll admit there’s not a lot of plot to this one – it boils down to ‘here’s a list of nice stuff that I don’t really need, I only want you’ – Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ is about to become an animated movie!
It’s not just based on the song – Mariah’s childrens’ book of the same name is about a young girl (named Mariah, obviously) who wants a puppy for Christmas. Mariah herself will be executive producer and narrator of the film, due sometime this year, also starring Henry Winkler and 14 year-old Breanna Yde as the young Mariah.
