I'll probably grab this. I watched the movies several times as a kid, and once in the last year or so.

Enjoyable flick and all.

With as long a delay as it has been, and takers on a bet if it's the same transfer as HD DVD or if they just recompile and stamp out new discs?

No, Casper was never released on HD DVD. IIRC, I was never even formally announced.

I don't expect this to have good transfer. Universal + mid 90s CGI = heavily digitized in all likelihood. I expect a wonderful combo of old master slathered in noise reduction, with jacked up sharpening and contrast, and sourced from a dated scan. Something akin to The Frighteners.

She's very good in this movie. In fact, it's one of my childhood favourites. I even made my own 'Casper' boardgame, together with my nephew, and collected most of the action figures. Very nice, cute movie. Can't wait to own the Blu-ray.

Excellent soundtrack, too!
