Living under the care of his uncles: The Ghostly Trio, Casper has been letting them push him around and making his afterlife miserable by having him do chores for them while they are scaring "fleshes" for their amusement. Whenever Casper would try to stand up to them, he gets too timid to do so. While they are on vacation in a place called Sunnybrite Resorts, Casper meets with a good little witch girl named Wendy, whom she and her bewitching aunts are on the run from an evil warlock: Desmond Spellman who attempts on destroying her after discovering that she will be a greater witch than him. Like Casper, Wendy is a kind witch who also have her relatives mistreating her.

When the three witches approach the Crewcut Hunk, portrayed by Casper Van Dien, he quickly escapes their clutches by proclaiming "Sorry ladies, I've got to go and kill some bugs".

In the party scene, Wendy's aunts take away human Stretch's coat, and don't give it back. When he comes to dance with them, his coat is back with him. See more »
This is by no means a great movie at all, the special effects are pretty dodgy and the story quite weird also. The main reason why this would be of interest to viewers is that it marks the film debut of Hilary Duff, who is 11 years old in this film. This movie was one of her first ever jobs and she does a good job, given the material she is working with. Her voice is a lot higher pitched than it is on Lizzie. A standout scene would be Wendy and Casper dancing under a gazebo.
