One of the big kid’s movies most people look to is the 1995 movie, Casper. Let’s take a look at whether Casper is streaming on Netflix in the US, UK, Canada and Australia. 

Despite releasing in May, Casper has become a Halloween staple and continues to be 23 years after its cinema release. Most will be aware of the comic strip starring Casper the friendly ghost which is exactly what this movie adapted to the big screen. It was a massive success with it grossing almost $300 million at the box office.
