Today marks the highly-anticipated trailer launch of Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is You, debuting on Blu-rayTM, DVD & on November 27, 2017 from Universal 1440 Entertainment, a production entity of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Narrated and executive produced by Mariah Carey, the animated family film follows little Mariah as she chases her dream of having a puppy of her very own, making her ultimate wish for Christmas come true.
Joining Mariah Carey is an extraordinarily talented, dynamic and lovable voice cast including Breanna Yde (“School of Rock,” “The Haunted Hathaways”) as little Mariah; Henry Winkler (“Happy Days,” “Royal Pains”) as Grandpa Bill; Lacey Chabert (Mean Girls, “Party of Five”) as Mariah’s mother Penelope; and Phil Morris (“Smallville,” “Seinfeld”) as Mariah’s father Bud; along with Laya Hayes (“Doc McStuffins,” Sister Code) as Mariah’s friend Vicky and Keiko Agena (“Gilmore Girls,” Transformers: Dark of the Moon) as the pet adoption facilitator Emiko.
When Little Mariah (Yde) sees a darling little puppy named “Princess” at the pet store, she suddenly knows exactly what she wants for Christmas. Before her Christmas wish can come true, she must prove that she can dog-sit her uncle’s dog, Jack, a scraggly rascal; in fact, the worst dog in the county! Jack turns Mariah and her family’s perfect holiday preparations upside down in hilarious ways. It wasn’t exactly the Christmas she wished for…it was more than she ever wanted. Based on the iconic Christmas song and popular illustrated book of the same name, Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is You featuring Mariah’s music and narration will be a family favorite for years to come.
Showcasing stunning visuals in beautifully realized CGI animation, the film showcases the all-new original song Lil Snowman performed by Mariah Carey along with songs from Mariah Carey’s immense discography and features the iconic song All I Want for Christmas is You, along with two more of the pop queen’s holiday classics Miss You Most (At Christmas Time) and Christmas Time Is In The Air.
Originally released in 1994, the single “All I Want for Christmas is You” has sold more than 14 million copies. In 2016, more than two decades later, it was the year’s most streamed holiday single and dominated at #1 on Billboard’s Holiday 100 for four consecutive weeks . Carey’s critically acclaimed picture book of the same name was published in 2015.
