Western Animation / Moses: Egypt's Great Prince

Go To

Moses: Egypt's Great Prince is a 1998 Direct to Video Animated Musical made by UAV Entertainment. It tells the story of the Biblical hero, Moses, and how he freed his people from their lives of slavery.

As usual, this film is a mockbuster. This time of the DreamWorks Animation film The Prince of Egypt, also adapting the Book of Exodus.


  • Age Lift: Unlike the Bible, Moses is a teenager when he frees the slaves.
  • Animated Musical: As per usual for UAV.
  • Art Shift: We are treated to live-action film of Jerusalem at the end of the movie.
  • Barbie Doll Anatomy: None of the shirtless men have visible nipples.
  • Casting Gag: In the Japanese dub, it's not the first time Tomokazu Seki (Moses) voices someone who has "God" on his side, except it's named God Gundam.
  • Cats Are Mean: Nefer-Kitty.
  • The Chosen One: Moses.

  • Disproportionate Retribution: Pharaoh orders one of his servants to be burned to a cinder as punishment for serving him burned meat.
  • Distant Finale: The very end, where Moses sees the Promised Land before his death.
  • Female Feline, Male Mutt: Nefer-Kitty and Tut, respectively.
  • Heroes Love Dogs: Moses' dog Tut.
  • I Have No Son!: Pharaoh coldly disinherits Moses when he learns of his true past.
  • Jerkass: Ramses.
  • Lighter and Softer: Than both the Dreamworks movie and the Biblical account of Moses' life - for one thing, there are no plagues. However, unlike the Dreamworks movie, it does show that Moses sees the Promised Land but does not reach it.
  • Toilet Humor: While we don't see anything, Tut clearly urinates on Aaron.
  • Villain Song: Ramses gets one.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Nearly all the Egyptian men (except the priests).

  • What Happened to the Mouse?: When Moses faces Pharaoh and Ramses, Nefer-Kitty's tail is set on fire and she jumps out a window into the Nile. She's surrounded by crocodiles and isn't seen again.
