The Prince of Egypt

The Prince of Egyptis a 1998 American animated musical drama film and the first traditionally animated film produced and released by DreamWorks Animation . The film is an adaptation of the Book of Exodus and follows the life of Moses from being a prince of Egypt to his ultimate destiny to lead the children of Israel out of Egypt. The film was directed by Brenda Chapman , Simon Wells and Steve Hickner. The film featured songs written by Stephen Schwartz and a score composed by Hans Zimmer . The voice cast featured a number of major Hollywood actors in the speaking roles, while professional singers replaced them for the songs. The exceptions were Michelle Pfeiffer , Ralph Fiennes , Ofra Haza , Steve Martin , and Martin Short , who sang their own parts.

The film was nominated for best Original Music Score and won for Best Original Song at the 1999 Academy Awards for " When You Believe ".The pop version of the song was performed at the ceremony by Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey . The song, co-written by Stephen Schwartz, Hans Zimmer and with additional production by Babyface , was nominated for Best Original Song (in a Motion Picture) at the 1999 Golden Globes ,and was also nominated for Outstanding Performance of a Song for a Feature Film at the ALMA Awards .

The film was released in theaters on December 18, 1998, and on home video on September 14, 1999. The film went on to gross $218,613,188 worldwide in theaters,making it the second traditionally animated feature not released by Disney to gross over $100 million in the U.S. afterThe Rugrats Movie. Prince of Egypt became the top grossing non-Disney animated film until 2000 when it was out-grossed by the stop motion filmChicken Run. The film also remained the highest grossing non-Disney traditionally animated film until 2007, when it was out-grossed byThe Simpsons Movie.

The Prince of Egyptwas "written" throughout the story process. Beginning with a starting outline, Story Supervisors Kelly Asbury and Lorna Cook led a team of 14 storyboard artists and writers as they sketched out the entire movie - sequence by sequence. Once the storyboards were approved, they were put into the Avid Media Composer digital editing system by editor Nick Fletcher to create a "story reel" or animatic . The story reel allowed the filmmakers to view and edit the entire movie in continuity before production began, and also helped the layout and animation departments understand what is happening in each sequence of the film.After casting of the voice talent concluded, dialogue recording sessions began. For the film, the actors record individually in a studio under guidance by one of the three directors. The voice tracks were to become the primary aspect as to which the animators built their performances.Because DreamWorks was concerned about historical and theological accuracy, Jeffrey Katzenberg decided to call in Bible scholars , Christian , Jewish and Muslim theologians , and Arab American leaders to help his movie be more accurate and faithful to the original story . After previewing the developing film, all these leaders noted that the studio executives listened and responded to their ideas, and praised the studio for reaching out for comment from outside sources.
