Announced back in March, Universal 1440’s holiday hit song-inspired CG tale has received a home entertainment debut date and a spunky, snowy trailer. Narrated and executive produced by the all-time best-selling diva, Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas Is You arrives on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital and On Demand on November 14 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
Adapted from the illustrated book of the same name, the movie centers on little Mariah, who desperately wishes to find the darling puppy named Princess she saw at the pet store under the tree on Christmas morning. To make her wish come true, Mariah must show responsibility by dog-sitting her uncle’s scraggly rascal, Jack — the worst dog in the country! Jack’s antics turn her family’s perfect holiday preparations upside down in hilarious ways. Even though it isn’t exactly the Christmas she wished for, Mariah realizes it was more than she ever wanted.
All I Want for Christmas features the voices of Breanna Yde (School of Rock) as Mariah, Henry Winkler (Royal Pains) as Grandpa Bill, Lacey Chabert (Mean Girls) and Phil Morris (Smallville) as Mariah’s mother and father, Penelope and Bud; with Laya Hayes (Doc McStuffins) as Mariah’s friend Vicky, and Keiko Agena (Gilmore Girls) as pet adoption facilitator Emiko. In addition to narrating, Carey performs an all-new original song “Lil Snowman” for the movie, which naturally features “All I Want for Christmas Is You” and the pop queen’s other holiday classics, “Miss You Most (At Christmas Time)” and “Christmas Time Is in the Air.”
The Blu-ray, DVD and Digital versions include the bonus featurette “A Wish Come True: Making Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas Is You,” in which stars Cary and Yde discuss their roles in the film, their love for dogs, and their favorite things about Christmas.
The pic is exec produced by Carey and Stella Bulochnikov for Magic Carpet Prod., in partnership with producer Mike Young and Splash Ent. (Kulipari, Norm of the North). Guy Vasilovich (LEGO Star Wars) directs from a script by Temple Mathews (Return to Neverland, The Little Mermaid 2: Return to the Sea).
