Amazon today announced a deal with NBCUniversal to make Prime Video the exclusive subscription streaming service for new animated film Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas Is You from Universal 1440 Entertainment. The film is inspired by Mariah’s classic holiday hit of the same name, which was the most streamed holiday song on Amazon Music last year. The movie is narrated and executive produced by Mariah Carey and features a new original song by Mariah Carey 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,” said Mariah Carey.
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 was more than she ever wanted. Based on the iconic Christmas song and popular illustrated book of the same name, Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas Is You featuring Mariah’s music and narration will be a family favorite for years to come.
The film is available exclusively for Prime members in the U.S. and Canada to stream, and Amazon customers may start their holiday shopping with the digital movie available for $14.99. Customers looking for a holiday rental have the option to rent for $4.99 (SD) or $5.99 (HD). The DVD and Blu-ray are also available for purchase.
Originally released in 1994, the single “All I Want for Christmas Is You” 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. Carey’s critically acclaimed picture book of the same name was published in 2015.
