Apple TV+ is making all of our Christmas wishes come true with a Mariah Carey holiday special set to release on the streaming platform. The musical special will no doubt feature songs from her iconic “All I Want for Christmas is You” album which turned 25 last year.
Along with Mariah Carey, the special is being produced by Ian Stewart, Raj Kapoor and Ashley Edens with the Done + Dusted production company which has produced other notable specials like The Disney Family Singalong, and John Legend’s A Legendary Christmas with John and Chrissy.
Described with words like “innovative,” the special “will combine music, dancing and animation driven by a universally heartwarming story that brings the world together,” Deadline reports.
Mariah Carey’s hit All I Want for Christmas is You was originally released as the lead single her album on October 29, 1994. Since then, it’s gone on to become a modern-day staple in the canon of Christmas carols and holds the title of best selling Christmas single by a female artist, and one of the best selling singles of all time. The song has broken records and went on to top the Billboard charts in 2019 after a new music video was released for the 25th anniversary.
There’s no set date yet for when the special will premiere on Apple TV+, but it will most likely be sometime after October.
