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.

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.
