Casper and Emma are back in this follow-up to last year’s hit, this time on a skiing holiday. They’re having an extra special time, including a real-life igloo in which they get to spend the night! They’re playing in the snow and having the time of their lives – until Peter shows up. He’s very good at skiing and Emma considers him her new special friend. As Casper cannot demonstrate such sporting prowess, he’s losing Emma’s affection and, what’s more, his parents are quarrelling on a daily basis. Casper is at a loss. Will he be able to overcome his fears in order to win Emma back and prevent his parents from divorcing? A mixture of fiction and animation, the film displays great feel for the youngest audiences. Although with longer running time, the film keeps the children nailed to their seats.
“I tried to create a similar atmosphere to the one prevailing in the books about Casper and Emma. Nevertheless, I had to maintain the right measure of dramatic tension.” (Arne Lindtner Naess)
