WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Adapted from the book of Exodus in the Bible, The Prince Of Egypt tells through delightful picture and song, the story of Moses and how he, upon learning of his true heritage as a Jew, returns to Egypt to face his brother Rameses (now the Pharaoh), and to demand the release of his people, the Jews, from their lives of slavery to the Eqyptian rulers. A Red Sea’s worth of top talent supply the voices including Val Kilmer as Moses, Ralph Fiennes as Rameses and Steve Martin and Martin Short as the comic relief team of Hotep & Huy.
