Storyline

When Joseph receives a beautiful coat from his parents, his ten 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>

A Great Bible story for everyone to enjoy over and over again.
9 November 2000 | by scoobyg69See all my reviews

Dreamworks has done it again. Joseph is just as triumphant as The Prince of Egypt. The animation is just as spactacular, and it's accuracy is VERY close. A great bible story lesson for the children and family to enjoy over and over again. Great music, an animated epic. Why this one didn't hit theators in America is the biggest mystery. The biggest shame is that no one has heard of this one, it is a real "FIND."
