** Joseph's brothers only admit this many years later, when Joseph as the Pharaoh threatens to make Benjamin a slave on charges of theft. By the time they realized how much they had broken their father's and Rachel's hearts, Joseph was lost to them forever, and they didn't dare confess what they had done.

By the time they realized how much they had broken their father's and Rachel's hearts, with Rachel dying after having Benjamin, Joseph was lost to them forever, and they didn't dare confess what they had done.

* ObliviousGuiltSlinging: Played with when Joseph is questioning Benjamin about the events surrounding his own dissappearance. He knows full well what happened and that the truth behind the questions he's asking are but because his brothers don't recognize him his questions to Benjamin come across as this trope.

* EarnYourHappyEndingLaserGuidedKarma: Joseph invokes this as his SecretTestOfCharacter when his brothers come to Egypt begging for grain. They fail the first bit by lying about what happened to him, and so he demands to see Benjamin, his ReplacementGoldfish for his parents. He then threatens to make them relive his being sold into slavery, by impressing Benjamin into his service after framing him for theft. It's only when they beg for Benjamin's lives and confess does he reveal his identity.

** Played with and kicked around a bit. Due to Zuleika's attraction to Joseph, he's given less physical labor while in slavery, and Joseph's intelligence and wit wins over the Pharaoh, but some of the times in between these events aren't so happy.

Deleting pothole; one trope per bullet;
** AdaptedOut: Rachel is the only one of Jacob's four wives to appear, though it's a plot point that the other ten aren't biologically hers. Jacob's one daughter, Dinah, is also nowhere to be seen. Although, again, showing her backstory, i.e. [[spoiler:the Rape of Dinah]] would ''definitely'' shove up the rating.

* [[AmbiguousEnding Ambiguous Fate]]: Zuleika. She isn't seen again after Joseph is sent to prison, and no one mentions her anymore (except Potiphar briefly, but he is cut short before he can finish his sentence). Did they divorce? Did she ''die''? In a movie all about forgiveness (at least for the penitent, ''which she was'' in her last scene), was she ever forgiven by either Joseph or Potiphar? If not, it's somewhat disconcerting and inconsistent with the rest of the film, [[MustMakeAmends especially since she immediately acted to try and undo her wicked deeds once she felt remorse and pity for Joseph]], [[DoubleStandard unlike Joseph's brothers and Potiphar who were eventually forgiven nonetheless]]. This is possibly an example of LeftHanging.

One of the most obscure of all the Creator/DreamWorksAnimation films, and Dreamworks' first Direct to Video release. Meant to be the follow-up/prequel to ''WesternAnimation/ThePrinceOfEgypt'', although it was made ''during'' that film's production. Basically, imagine ''Theatre/JosephAndTheAmazingTechnicolorDreamcoat'', but in animation, and with Ben Affleck.
