Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas Is You has landed on Amazon Prime Video, following an exclusive deal between the online giant and NBCUniversal.
The new animated film is inspired by Mariah’s classic Christmas hit of the same name, which was the most streamed Christmas song on Amazon Music last year. Originally released in 1994, the single has sold more than 14 million copies across all retail markets. In 2016, more than two decades later, it dominated at #1 on Billboard’s Holiday 100 for four consecutive weeks. A picture book of the same name was published by Carey in 2015.
The movie, which is narrated and executive produced by the singer, features a new original track by the singer and three of her classic holiday hits.
“I am thrilled to have Amazon Prime Video as the exclusive streaming home of Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas Is You. Amazon already brings my music to fans around the world, and now I am excited to share my holiday film with Amazon customers,” says Mariah.
When Little Mariah (Breanna 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. Jack turns Mariah and her family’s perfect holiday preparations upside down, but while it wasn’t exactly the Christmas she wished for, it was – you guessed it – more than she ever wanted.
The film is available exclusively for Amazon Prime Video subscribers in the UK, but Amazon customers can start their Christmas shopping early, with the digital movie available to buy and rent through Amazon Video and the DVD and Blu-ray also available.
