Mariah Carey heralded the Apocalypse today with the news that her 1994 Christmas song “All I Want for Christmas Is You” is being turned into a CG-animated feature film at Universal Pictures.
Carey lends her voice to the project along with Breanna Yde, Henry Winkler, Lacey Chabert, Phil Morris, Laya Hayes and Keiko Agena. Carey’s critically-acclaimed picture book based on the song will also be used as source material. Guy Vasilovich helms the film from a script by Temple Mathews.
No further details about the project have been revealed beyond a targeted release date of this coming holiday season on Blu-ray, DVD and VOD. The original song makes an annual appearance on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, repeatedly tops the Billboard Holiday chart, and remains one of Carey’s best-selling single of all time.
