Both an epic adventure and a milestone in cinematic achievement, The Prince of Egypt captivated movie audiences the world over with its unparalleled artistry, timeless story, and powerful music!
The film is an adaptation of the book of Exodus and follows the life of Moses from being a prince of Egypt to his ultimate destiny to lead the Hebrew slaves out of Egypt. The film was nominated for best Original Music Score and won for Best Original Song at the 1999 Academy Awards for "When You Believe".
Here is an Egypt alive with energetic bustle and pristine buildings. Born a slave and set adrift in the river, Moses (voiced by Val Kilmer) is raised as the son of Pharaoh Seti (Patrick Stewart) and is a fitting rival for his stepbrother Rameses (Ralph Fiennes). When he learns of his roots, Moses flees to the desert, where he finds his roots and heeds God's calling to free the Hebrew slaves from Egypt. The film climaxes with the parting of the Red Sea.
Both spectacular entertainment and a celebration of the human spirit, Prince of Egypt is a classic for the ages, for audiences of every generation to enjoy and cherish.
Kids ages 5 and up should be able to handle the referenced violence; the film doesn't shy away from what Egyptians did to their slaves.
