The Prince of Egypt is a 1998 American animated children's feature film from DreamWorks Animated, directed by Simon Wells, Brenda Chapman, and Steve Hickner. A children-friendly adaptation of the Book of Exodus, The Prince of Egypt follows the life of Moses (voice of Val Kilmer) from his early days as a prince in Egypt to his ultimate destiny as the leader of the Jews, freeing the Hebrew Slaves from their hard lives. High points include the Burning Bush scene, the Plagues of Egypt, and the parting of the Red Sea. Full of moving songs and a solid religious message that holds true despite the film's great entertainment value, The Prince of Egypt is both a religious teaching tool and a source of filmwatcher's delight. The Prince of Egypt's magnificent soundtrack and compelling story made it a great success, earning raving reviews, several awards, and even more award nominations.
