Since I blog, I do believe I can start talking about Christmas. I even wrote about attending a Christmas event in July!
In the run up to Christmas, we do a lot of Christmas oriented things – read Christmas books, watch DVDs.
We were recently sent a new DVD called All I Want for Christmas is You and here’s some more information about it.
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 favourite for years to come.
Showcasing stunning visuals in beautifully realised CGI animation, the film showcases the all-new original song Lil Snowman performed by Mariah Carey along with songs from Mariah Carey’s immense discography and features the iconic song All I Want for Christmas is You, along with two more of the pop queen’s holiday classics, Miss You Most (At Christmas Time) and Christmas Time Is In The Air.
Originally released in 1994, the single “All I Want for Christmas is You” has sold more than 14 million copies. In 2016, more than two decades later, it was the year’s most streamed holiday single and 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.
Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is You is executive produced by Mariah Carey and
Stella Bulochnikov for Magic Carpet Productions (A Christmas Melody, “Mariah’s World”) in partnership with producer Mike Young and Splash Entertainment (“Kulipari,” “Norm of the North”). It is directed by Guy Vasilovich (Lego Star Wars) from a script by Temple Mathews (Return To Neverland, The Little Mermaid 2: Return to the Sea).
What we thought –
The children enjoyed the film. Who doesn’t love a good Christmas film? It’s about family and caring and has great soundtrack too. It also shows that sometimes what you want is right under your nose. It’s a film that brings about all happy memories of Christmas.
