The Prince of Egypt (1998) starring Val Kilmer, Ralph Fiennes

The Prince of Egypt – the epic journey of Moses from slave to prince to deliverer has been told and retold for centuries, inspiring generation after generation. Now DreamWorks Animation brings this timeless story to the screen for audiences of every generation to enjoy. Featuring the voice talents of Val Kilmer, Ralph Fiennes, Michelle Pfeiffer, Sandra Bullock and more!


I have to say, Prince of Egypt is an excellent version of the biblical story of the exodus. As with all movies, it takes a lot of liberties. But on the other hand, we have very little detail about young Moses’s early life. It’s an engaging, entertaining, wonderful movie. The songs are extremely memorable. Decades later, I can still remember them in the lyrics as I’m writing this. The one major liberty. That the movie takes has to do with the relationship between Moses and his brother. But it’s a small quibble. The voice acting is absolutely excellent, from the major actors to the minor. One of my favorite scenes is the confrontation between pharaohs wizards, and Moses. Martin, short, and Steve Martin do an absolutely excellent job! The entire movie is extremely well done and highly recommended. My children loved it, and I hope you will as well.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Product Description

Dreamworks Pictures has taken the biblical story of Exodus, put it into cartoon form, and released it on the big screen as an epic animated feature. The Prince of Egypt tells the story of Moses releasing the Jews from Egyptian slavery under the hand of the evil pharaoh Rameses. Think of The Ten Commandments with songs and an all-star cast doing the voices. In the Charlton Heston role of Moses is Val Kilmer. Moses’ brother Rameses, previously played by Yul Brynner, is now voiced by Ralph Fiennes. The story revolves around these two close brothers, Moses and Rameses.

While Rameses is groomed to take over the land, his beloved brother Moses is a carefree prankster, until he learns the true secret of his past. His secret, of course, is that he is really a Jew and as a child was floated down the river to escape mass genocide. The pharaoh Seti (Patrick Stewart) raised Moses as his son. Upon learning the truth of his past from a burning bush, Moses returns to Egypt with God on his side and demands that the pharaoh (now his brother Rameses) must “Let my people go.” With songs written by Oscar-winner Stephen Schwartz and sung by Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey, The Prince of Egypt covers all the classic story points of the story of Moses, including the ten plagues and the parting of the Red Sea.
