The Little Ghost Flies Over to Vertical Entertainment
He's not Casper, but he's just as friendly. The Little Ghost has been charming audiences over in Germany, and he's soon headed Stateside. Read on for all the details about the ghost with the most!
As per Variety, Vertical Entertainment has acquired North American rights to the family-friendly flick, which has thus far grossed over $6 million at the German box office.
The feature is live-action, apart from, of course, its central character, the Little Ghost, which is rendered in CGI. It is based on the best-selling children’s book by Otfried Preussler, which has been translated into more than 31 languages.
The titular Little Ghost lives in the castle of Eulenstein and is awake for one hour every night from midnight. The ghost would like to see the world by daylight for once, despite the warnings of a friend, Mr. Tu-Whit Tu-Whoo.
One night, three kids go on a trip to the castle, where they have their first encounter with the ghost. The following day, the ghost wakes up at 12 o’clock noontime and ventures into the town. Its joy soon passes, as — discolored by the first sunrays — it scares the town’s inhabitants and causes a commotion. Chased by the police, the ghost asks the children for help.
The pic’s producers are Uli Putz and Jakob Claussen of Claussen+Woebke+Putz Filmproduktion. ARRI Worldsales, which is part of the ARRI Group, is a co-producer.
