get out your VCR’s it’s time to watch The Prince of Egypt. or you can watch it here.
please don’t watch exodus: gods and kings because it’s icky and racist. you deserve better. you deserve the prince of egypt.
May I also add that The Prince of Egypt’s accuracy has been approved by not only Christianity, but by Judaism and Islam as well! So it’s actually the most accurately told version out there!
Just wanna also add on that while there’s this faint idea that “but weren’t the Egyptian royals descended from Alexander the Great”, this was for a fraction of Egypt’s 5000 year old civilisation. Cleopatra WAS at least part Macedonian because she was descended from Ptolemy, one of Alexander the Great’s generals who took over after he conquered Egypt, BUT, the time period Exodus would be set in is BEFORE Ptolemaic Egypt.
Based on the time Moses is believed to be born, Exodus would have taken place around 1000 years before Alexander the Great. So, the Egyptian Pharaohs would definitely have not had that much European blood (if any) to justify such casting.
Though PoE doesn’t follow the biblical canons to a T, the liberties it did take made sense and held truer to the historical context. Yeah, it was better than Exodus is gonna be. I wonder how this trend of biblical movies will play out because Noah was kind of a disaster.
