Christmas has come early.

Legendary singer Mariah Carey announced on Twitter Monday that her classic Christmas tune “All I Want For Christmas Is You” will be made into an animated feature film that will be released during the 2017 holiday season.

“There are traditions we can’t live without. The tree, the stockings, the presents and Mariah Carey,” a teaser for the film says.

“We couldn’t agree more, Mariah,” The Huffington Post commented. On the song, The HuffPost said, “It’s only natural that it be made into a film.”

The song, which has its own music video produced in 1994, is often considered one of the most popular holiday songs, according to Time Magazine.

In the 2015 holiday season, the song clocked 4.5 million views, Time reported.

The song topped Spotify’s most popular and most streamed Christmas song list in Australia in 2016, The HuffPost reported.

Carey will be included in the animated film as a cartoon.
