The Prince of Egypt

Trivia: 2 differences between The Bible and the Movie. 1) Aaron did not doubt Moses in the Bible. In fact Aaron did most of the speaking before Pharaoh and actually performed some of the miracles. 2) Moses murdered the Egyptian task master. He did not accidentally kill him. Pharaoh wanted to kill Moses because of this, not try to convince him to stay.

Trivia: Moses and Rameses originally had animal sidekicks. Moses had two dogs, and Rameses had an evil cat. Though the filmmakers decided to remove the animals from the plot, the two dogs are seen in Moses's bedroom.

Trivia: This film is actually banned in Egypt.

Factual error: During the plague when the fire and rocks are falling from the sky, they fall behind a statue of Rameses and are seen through its hollow eye holes. It makes for a great image, but that would mean that the statue's eyes were punched out like a mask, even though before they were just carved into the stone.

Miriam: Moses, hear what I say. I have been a slave all my life. And God has never answered my prayers until now. God saved you from the river, He saved you in all your wanderings, and even now, He saves you from the wrath of Pharaoh. God will not abandon you. So don't you abandon us.
