Mariah Carey is Bringing Her Hit "All I Want for Christmas is You" to the Big Screen
The self-proclaimed Queen of Christmas is taking her hit song "All I Want for Christmas is You" to the movies.
Mariah Carey made the announcement on her social media accounts this morning, sharing news that the hit song will be made into an animated movie come this winter.
The announcement came in the form of a video, showing Carey already decked out in Christmas attire. "My song is becoming a movie!" she wrote. "You're the first to hear about this exciting news!," using the hashtag #AllIWantMovie, which already has a designated Twitter account.
In 2015, Carey jumped on the opportunity to make something more out of her song by releasing an illustrated children's book based on the tune. Though additional details are not yet known, the movie is sure to be a hit, considering the success of the holiday song. The track was initially released in 1994, but has since made the top charts year after year as a holiday classic. Carey, too, can't stay away from the Christmas hit. Just last year, the singer and her twins danced it out in the kitchen to celebrate the holiday season.
