Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You - the new festive family film

Are you feeling festive yet? You may be rolling your eyes and thinking it's far too early to be talking about Christmas but there are only 42 sleeps to go - woohoo ! I went into town with the girls at the weekend and we started stocking up on stocking fillers, as well as oohing and aahing at all the Christmas jumpers and accessories in the shops. The Madhouse kids would quite happily put the tree up and get all the decorations out right now, but we'll hold off until the first weekend of December as usual. That traditionally also signals the time I get my beloved Christmas CD out and this invariably ends up being the non-stop soundtrack to our time at home for the whole of December and January. One of the ultimate cheesy Christmas classics is Mariah Carey's All I Want For Christmas so I was delighted to learn that a new animated movie Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You hits the shelves today. The film, narrated by Mariah Carey, follows little Mariah as she chases her dream of having a puppy of her very own, making her ultimate wish for Christmas come true.

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 - 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 turns out that it was more than she ever wanted !

Showcasing stunning visuals in beautifully realised CGI animation and an amazing festive soundtrack, the film features several songs from Mariah Carey’s immense discography, including the all-new original song Lil Snowman, two more of the pop queen’s holiday classics, Miss You Most (At Christmas Time) and Christmas Time Is In The Air, and - of course - the iconic song All I Want for Christmas is You.

After the song and the popular illustrated book of the same name, Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is You film featuring Mariah’s music and narration will definitely be a festive family favourite for years to come.
