    Mariah Carey Is Turning "All I Want For Christmas Is You" Into A Movie

    *Mariah Carey did not actually invent Christmas.

    The announcement was made via Carey's social channels with an accompanying video. Though details were scarce, two things were confirmed: The movie will be animated and it'll be out some time during the 2017 holiday season.

    Carey's team also made a Twitter account named after the song, and now, upcoming film, which you can check for the latest announcements.

    This isn't the first time Carey has turned her classic yuletide carol into a different form of media. In 2015, Carey released a children's book based on her iconic hit song.

    The song has continued to top the charts more than 20 years after its initial release in 1994, and is essentially inescapable once the holidays roll around.
