The shared vision of Thursday 17 September organized by the editorial staff of Comingsoon.it its SimulWatch, our app available for free on Google Play e App Store, is an animated film produced by DreamWorks and inspired by Book of Exodus. The prince of egypt, made in 1998 with a technique that combined computer imagery and traditional animation, it was a declared attempt to offer something different than the Disney films whose last three titles were Mulan, Hercules e The hunchback of Notre Dame. DreamWorks was in its infancy and The Prince of Egypt it was his first animated work with Antz.
The appointment for see The Prince of Egypt all together and comment on it with friends and family, each at home, through the SimulWatch chat is set for Thursday 17 September at 5 pm.
The Book of Exodus is divided into 40 chapters, but the Prince of Egypt is inspired by the first 14 that tell of the stay of the Jews in Egypt, their slavery and the miraculous liberation that took place thanks to Moses (which in the original version has the voice of Val Kilmer). The story thus dates back to around 1250 BC when Pharaoh Seti, fearing that an alarming increase in slaves could lead to a rebellion, orders his guards to kill all Jewish male babies. A mother in a panic rushes to the Nile River to escape the pharaoh’s guards who are looking for her baby and places the baby in a basket, puts him to sleep, singing him a lullaby, and entrusts him to the waters, hoping they will lead him to safety . The newborn is found and adopted by Queen Tuya, and she raises him together with her son Ramses. Twenty years later, Moses begins to remember something. Following a distressing dream, he finds the painting that tells the massacre of newborns and the pharaoh tells him the whole truth, arguing that after all, Jews were only slaves.
