Storyline

When Joseph receives a beautiful coat from his parents, his eleven brothers hate him even more and are driven to sell him to desert merchants who take him to Egypt! There he is made the servant of a wealthy Egyptian who misunderstands him and has him thrown into prison! He shows his God-given gift by interpreting the dreams of two other prisoners. Eventually, the Pharaoh begins to be plagued by dreams and sends for Joseph, who interprets them and saves Egypt in the process. He is made second in command to Pharaoh, and has most of Egypt's grain stored. Eventually his brothers arrive in Egypt to buy food because of famine, and he must forgive them. Then the dreams that had angered his brothers were in reality prophecies that had come from God. Written by Anthony Pereyra <hypersonic91@yahoo.com>

Quotes

Asenath: [after Joseph has placed Simeon under arrest] Joseph, they are just trying to feed their families.
Joseph: They're thieves, here to steal our grain.
Asenath: They needed food and they were ready to pay for it. Joseph, they've done nothing to you.
Joseph: Nothing?
[pauses and sighs]
Joseph: They're my brothers.
Asenath: [in disbelief] What?
Joseph: They sold me. They sold me into slavery. I never got to say goodbye to my mother, I never got to watch my father grow old.
Asenath: Joseph, I didn't know.
[hugs him]

A different film from Prince of Egypt ....less overwrought and more enjoyable
19 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We bought this film in a two-pack with PoE and find ourselves watching King of Dreams much more than PoE. I personally find that:

1) The story is incredibly satisfying emotionally. Joseph's story of commitment to God in the face of such challenges and especially his struggle to forgive his brothers is something that I think everyone can relate to.

2) The acting is top notch. They didn't near as many high powered stars as PoE, but apparently Ben Affleck and Mark Hamil decided that they couldn't coast through this and put in super performances.

3) The music is less "soundtracky" and more singable. I 2 years later, I still can't get "You know better than I" out of my head.

4) The animation, sigh, is not quite as ambitious as PoE, but is definitely sufficient to tell the story. I didn't notice any letdown until I read a previous poster's comment about a lack of animation on the level of the Red Sea parting or burning bush PoE scenes, and they're right. But I didn't miss them. Go hang your PS3 screenshots in a museum -- I'll stick to my awesome Wii gameplay.
