Casper: A Spirited Beginning

( 1 )

Overview

The prequel to the popular live action Casper, Casper: A Spirited Beginning, comes to DVD with a standard full-frame transfer. The English soundtrack is fine, though less than spectacular. Supplemental materials include a featurette, and previews for other family friendly titles from 20th Century Fox. There is little on this disc to interest the average DVD consumer, but those looking for something to watch with children should find it worthwhile.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
It's a "poltergeist party" when newly minted ghost Casper finds himself AWOL from spook training school. He makes his very first friend, a kindred misfit spirit named Chris, who loves comic books and sci-fi and isn’t afraid of ghosts. Chris's workaholic father (Steve Guttenberg) is determined to tear down a condemned mansion, putting him at odds with a local schoolteacher (Full House star Lori Laughlin), who rallies the town to save it. This direct-to-video treat is hauntingly heartwarming and hilarious with spook-tacular slapstick, courtesy of the mischief-making Ghostly Trio. The age-appropriate scares make for ideal family fright night viewing.
