Trivia

Jump to: Cameo (4)
The first feature film with a computer-animated title character.
This is the second movie in which Christina Ricci is the love interest of Devon Sawa (Casper in his human form). The other one is Now and Then (1995).
For the scene where Casper drags Kat out the window and then takes her to the lighthouse, Christina Ricci had a piece of fishing line tied to her wrist to give the appearance of been pulled by a ghost.
The last name of the Christina Ricci's and Bill Pullman's characters is "Harvey". Harvey Comics is the long time publisher of "Casper the Friendly Ghost".
Casper's last name is McFadden. This is made clear in the newspaper headline on the floor when Christina Ricci's character reads about Casper's father in the old clippings.
A musical scene, titled "Lucky Enough to Be A Ghost," was scripted and filmed. The three ghosts sang about their mental problems during a session with Dr. Harvey. It was dropped because of cost; the animation would have cost a few million dollars.
A live-action sequel was proposed, and a preliminary script was drafted, when production wrapped. Unfortunately, the movie was a box-office disappointment, despite grossing more than $100 million in the US. Christina Ricci and Bill Pullman were attached to other projects, and would not be available for more than a year. The producers decided to produce a cartoon series instead.
Items from the set are on display at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida.
A scene was filmed with Zelda Rubinstein shooting out of a chimney and shouting "Go toward the light!", reprising her role from Poltergeist (1982), but it was cut.
The sentence being diagrammed on the chalkboard in the classroom reads "Paul Revere and William Dowes saw & warned."
Bill Pullman and Devon Sawa appeared together many years later in the film The Guilty (2000)
