Apple TV+ has released a trailer for Mariah Carey's Magical Christmas Special

Apple TV+ has released a trailer for Mariah Carey's Magical Christmas Special

What’s more Christmas-y than a Christmas special?

Apple TV+ has released a new trailer for Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special! The star-studded festive special will launch globally on December 4, exclusively on Apple TV+. If you’re still trying to get into the Christmas spirit, this is a good bet.

Watch a trailer below:

Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special features a pretty stunning lineup of celebrities, including: Tiffany Haddish, Billy Eichner, Ariana Grande, Jennifer Hudson, Snoop Dogg, Jermaine Dupri, Misty Copeland and Mykal-Michelle Harris. Carey’s nine-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe will also make an appearance. 

Surprisingly, the special actually has a story. The world is suddenly faced with a holiday cheer crisis (um, Elf much?). The North Pole turns to the one person who could possibly fix things: Santa Claus’ great friend, Mariah Carey. The special mixes in musical performances, dance sequences and, “groundbreaking animation,” according to a press release. 

The soundtrack single and music video for ‘Oh Santa!’, co-written by and featuring Carey, Ariana Grande and Jennifer Hudson will hit Apple Music and other streaming platforms on December 4. A companion soundtrack to the special is also coming, with the likes of Snoop Dogg and Jermaine Dupri as additional musical guests. This soundtrack will be exclusive to Apple Music on December 4, before launching on other platforms on December 11. 

In the strange year we’ve had, a quick-fix for holiday cheer is actually welcome. Plus, look at that socially-distanced choir! You won't see that on any other Christmas Day... hopefully.
