Amazon has announced a deal to secure the exclusive rights to stream a new animated short film based on Mariah Carey’s festive classic ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’. The film is narrated by Carey, who also serves as its executive producer.

“I am THRILLED to have Amazon Prime Video as the exclusive streaming home of ‘Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas Is You'”, says Carey, sticking to the film’s official full title even though it means referring to herself in the third person. “Amazon already brings my music to fans around the world, and now I am excited to share my holiday film with Amazon customers”.

The film, based on a children’s book of the same name, is available now to Amazon Prime members in the US and Canada.

Meanwhile, Carey has announced that the initial dates of her 2017 Christmas tour – which was due to begin in Canada tonight – have been cancelled, as she’s developed a respiratory infection. Yeah, I always get ill at Christmas too.

In a statement, Carey said: “Just in time for the holiday gift-giving season, it seems I’ve received a present of my own; a lovely upper respiratory infection after last week’s flu. You know there is nothing I love more than celebrating the holidays with my festive Christmas show, but I have to take my doctor’s orders and rest until he says I can sing on stage”.
