Mariah Carey fans might want to start preparing for 2017 holiday season now: The singer’s hit 1994 song “All I Want for Christmas Is You” is becoming an animated movie.

Carey, 46, took to Twitter on Tuesday to announce the big news with a short teaser of the upcoming film. In the clip, the singer lounges on a couch while wearing red-and-black plaid pajamas as she cuddles with a puppy.

“Every holiday season there are traditions we can’t live without. The tree, the stockings, the presents and Mariah Carey,” a message reads in the trailer.

“My song is becoming a movie! You’re the first to hear about this exciting news!” she tweeted.

The film, produced by Universal Studios, will be released on Blu-ray, DVD and on demand just in time for Christmas this year.

But while details of the plot have not yet been released, this isn’t the first time the song has taken on a new form. She turned the classic tune into a children’s book in 2015, featuring an animated Carey as the main character.
