Mariah Carey Records Song for Animated Christmas Film ‘The Star’

Mariah Carey is set to continue her Christmas success this holiday season with The Star, an animated film that will feature her new song of the same name.

The “All I Want for Christmas” songstress premiered the forthcoming film’s trailer today (July 26). “I’m so excited to share the trailer for the new movie The Star,” she said in the clip.

Scheduled to hit theaters this holiday season, the animated film about the first Christmas ever will feature the voices of Steven Yeun, Gina Rodriguez, Zachary Levi, Keegan-Michael Key, Anthony Anderson, Kelly Clarkson, and additional appearances by Oprah Winfrey, Tracy Morgan, and Tyler Perry.

The trailer is soundtracked by a cover of Stevie Wonder’s “What Christmas Means to Me.” So far, there has been no teaser for Mariah’s title track for The Star.

This holiday season, Mariah is also set to narrate an animated film based on her holiday classic “All I Want for Christmas Is You.” She is also currently developing a drama series based on her life and readying a new album through her recently-announced Butterfly MC Records label.

If that wasn’t enough, the queen of Christmas will also celebrate the holiday season with fans at her annual “All I Want for Christmas Is You” concerts, which are set to take place at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas from Dec. 14-22.

But first, the pop diva can be seen alongside Lionel Richie on the “All the Hits” tour, which runs through Oct. 14.
