Halloweentown (1998)
On Marnie's 13th birthday, there is a suspicious feeling there’s more to her family history than not being able to go out trick-or-treating on Halloween. When her grandmother shows up, she lets the kids in on a secret; she gets to visit her grandma’s real home away from the real world, Halloweentown. Halloweentown is a magical land where ghouls and monsters live in harmony. Although not all spirits are kind, Marnie has to keep her family and the town safe and alive by understanding her own powers.

Matilda (1996)
Matilda Wormwood was born into a family of duds and no goods but all she wanted to do was learn. When she started public school she met her favorite teacher, Ms. Honey. On the other hand, the principal, Ms. Trunchbull, was as mean as a bull; she hated children as much as she hated her job. Ms. Honey helped but Matilda soon figured out herself how to use her powers to empower those who needed empowered and to scare those who needed to be scared away.

Casper (1995)
As a young ghost roams a house in Maine, and a father and daughter move into it for the father’s job: he communicates with ghosts. Casper falls in love with the girl but not without his ghost uncles trying to get in the way first.
