While we can all probably agree that this Christmas season will be a little different this year due to COVID-19.
However, it looks like Apple is trying to make everyone’s Christmas a little bit better.
This year, Apple will be airing “Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special” on Apple TV+. It comes at a time where her hit Christmas song “All I Want For Christmas” is set to turn 25 years old this year.
There is planned to be dancing and animation in harmony with the music, and a “heartwarming story that brings the world together.”
Here is more information from the official press release from Apple:
“In addition to Mariah Carey, Ian Stewart, Raj Kapoor and Ashley Edens executive produce for production company Done + Dusted (“The Disney Family Singalong,” John Legend’s “A Legendary Christmas with John and Chrissy,” “The Little Mermaid Live!,” “Dear Class of 2020,” London Olympic opening and closing ceremonies). The holiday special will be directed by BAFTA Award winner Hamish Hamilton (Oscars, Super Bowl halftime show, London Olympics opening and closing ceremonies), and Oscar nominee and Golden Globe winner Roman Coppola (“Mozart in the Jungle,” “Moonrise Kingdom,” “A Very Murray Christmas”), who also serves as executive producer on the project.”
There is no date on when it will air at this time, but it will premiere on Apple TV+ sometime this holiday season.
Apple TV+ costs $4.99 per month and is available via the Apple TV app on the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Apple TV, Mac, select Smart TVs, Roku devices and Amazon Fire TV.
