The 1995 spook-tacular will scare up Blu-ray in September. Pre-order it here.
In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers is working on 'Casper' for Blu-ray on September 2.
From director Brad Silberling and Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment comes a live-action fun house ride filled with laughter, excitement and ghostly surprises. "Ghost therapist" Dr. James Harvey (Bill Pullman) and his daughter Kat (Christina Ricci) arrive at drafty, old Whipstaff Manor. Its greedy owner, Carrigan Crittendon (Cathy Moriarty), has hired Dr. Harvey to exorcise the house's apparitions: a friendly but lonely young ghost named Casper, who's just looking for a friend, and his outrageous uncles Stretch, Stinkie and Fatso (The Ghostly Trio). If the plan works, she and Dibs (Eric Idle), her partner-in-slime, can get their hands on the manor's fabled treasure. Meanwhile, Casper has found a kindred spirit in Kat, but The Ghostly Trio will not tolerate "fleshies" in their house.
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a lossless 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include: Feature Commentary with Director Brian Silberling, Revealing Casper, and "Penguin for Your Thoughts" Cartoon Classic.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.98.
