Go To

The Ten Commandments is a 2007 CGI film created by Promenade Pictures.

It adapts the story of Moses from the biblical Book of Exodus.

The Ten Commandments provides examples of the following tropes:

  • Aborted Arc: Aaron is promised as an aid for the terrible speaker Moses, but it is Moses who faces the Pharaoh.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: Seti is a much more unpleasant character than he is in other versions, such as the non-animated film of the same name, or The Prince of Egypt.
  • Deadly Distant Finale: After the golden calf incident, the film jumps to Moses' final moments.
  • Foreshadowing: Moses' father tells kid Aaron that God has a plan for Moses.
  • Lost in Imitation: Many things were taken from the film by Cecil B. DeMille, like Moses' exile from Egypt, the Pharaoh being Rameses or the change to the Golden Calf incident.

  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Moses formed a family in Midian, which is all but forgotten after he leaves them.
