USA, 2000

Ben Affleck (voice), Mark Hamill (voice)
Directed by Rob LaDuca, Robert C. Ramirez


Joseph, a miracle child with the gift of interpreting dreams, is sold by his brothers to slave traders who take him to faraway Egypt. There he is sold to Potiphar, the captain of pharaoh's army. Joseph continues to stand out and Potiphar eventually puts him in charge of his household. There Joseph meets Asenath, with whom he falls in love. But Potiphar's wife also notices Joseph, and one night after attempting to approach him, Joseph is falsely accused of harming her. He is thrown into prison where he remains for a number of years until one day pharaoh needs him to interpret a dream that has been torturing him lately. Joseph interprets pharaoh's dreams which represent a famine in Egypt, and pharaoh is so impressed that he makes Joseph the second most powerful man in the land in order to prepare the country for the famine. Joseph meets Asenath again and they marry. It is during this time when he is reunited with his family who come to Egypt for food.

Animated film by DreamWorks made for video, made in the same style as the successful "The Prince of Egypt" (USA, 1999).
