Product Description

Joseph (voiced by Ben Affleck), his father's favorite son, is sold into slavery by his jealous half-brothers. After years of struggl e, Joseph rises to be the Pharaoh's trusted adviser when his gift for interpreting dreams pays dividends.

From Amazon.co.uk

Joseph King of Dreams is a direct-to-video sequel advertised as "from the makers of The Prince of Egypt", a labelling that might inspire trepidation in the viewer. Happily, the makers of Joseph leave Moses alone and tell the tale of another Bible star, Joseph, known for his coat of many colours and a fantastic destiny. Joseph (voiced by Ben Affleck), his father's favourite son, is sold into slavery by his jealous half-brothers. After years of struggle, Joseph rises to be the Pharaoh's trusted adviser when his gift for interpreting dreams pays dividends. The 78-minute feature is rich in colour and features several strong songs ("Better Than I" is the standout) written by newcomer John Bucchino. The film's religious elements are secondary, yet its heart is in the right spot--a most agreeable stance for a wider audience. Prince was designed as an "event" movie and suffered in the hype and marketing. With lower aims, Joseph is a more satisfying film and even invites the unexpected: we're ready for the next "sequel". --Doug Thomas, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

What it's about: Joseph: King of Dreams is an inspiring animated story, beautifully illustrated with colorful characters and an exceptional musical score. Robert Ramirez and Rob La Duca have directed this classic, biblically based story with Ben Affleck as the voice of Joseph, and Jodi Benson, Mark Hamil, Judith Light and James Eskhouse voicing key characters. The story begins with Jacob and Rachel discovering they were going to have a miracle child, reveals how his brothers resented him, carries on through his slavery and work for Pharaoh and ends with the joyous family reunion.
The good: Bravo to Dreamworks for an entertaining, beautifully animated story about one of the Bible's favorite characters! A few privileges have been taken with the script, but these are additions that improve the story and sort of fill in the blanks. Giving Joseph a love interest from Potiphar's household whom he eventually marries when he is under Pharaoh completes the picture of Joseph as a husband and father when his brothers find him. Adding a scene that shows Potiphar sparing Joseph's life because his wife asks him to, confirms that Potiphar realized his wife was lying and that he knew Joseph was really innocent. These situations don't change the story, but instead makes sense for children who are trying to figure out what happens in those scenes. The dreams are illustrated like Van Gogh paintings, 3-D camera angles surround characters to create a more realistic shot. A half dozen songs are skillfully used to bridge plot situations, explain a character's action, illustrate time lapses and celebrate events. The painful situations of his brothers selling him into slavery, Potiphar's wife betraying him and the joyful reunion with his family are handled in a tender way that children will understand and learn from.

Joseph and Prince of Egypt are my favourite DVDs. Though I bought it for my daughter, I love watching them with her. She loves singing along and laughs at the gentle humour.
Recommend - a good way of introducing the bible to small children.

A heart warming tale of love, loss, faith and hope...the best part, it's true. Straight from the Bible, this animated feature by Dreamworks contains wonderful music, references at the beginning and end to the bible passages it references and wonderful graphics. Children will love the characters and will prompt questions. This film could only be rivalled by its sister film (if you like) 'The Prince of Egypt', also amazing.

I showed this film in our secondary school and kids just loved it. Many of them don't believe in God at all and yet, this film has made them think. This story is about suffering, jealousy, forgiveness, faithfulness, to mention just some. In fact, I think it is done better than the Prince of Egypt from the same production. The songs are profound which make even adults emotional. Excellent film for the whole family.

Beautiful movie with beautiful music! My children watch it over and over, although the plot is sentimental and refers to family relations and human dependence on God. My two boys love to watch it and I think it has positive effect on them - not like most today's foolish motion pictures. Go for it, children need values!

I must admit that after seeing Dreamworks Animations previous film 'The Prince Of Egypt' (Which is excellent by the way) I had high hopes for 'Joseph King of Dreams'. Unfortunately the film suffers from a dire score and and a lacklustre script and story adaptation.

Having Ben Affleck as the voice of Joseph makes him sound wooden and insincere as a lead character and the supporting cast don't add much weight to the film either.

As a kid's film it is mediocre with far better offerings from Disney and other Dreamworks films.

The one thing I did enjoy about the movie is that the dream sequences are beautifully animated and the backgrounds in these scenes are straight from a Vincent Van Gogh painting which was really quite impressive.

Overall though I was disappointed with 'Joseph' and felt the film given more time and care could have been as good as its predecessor.

Good movie about Joseph (YUSOUF) and his brothers, great moral story from the Bible and the Quran. Could have been in more detail but is a children s movie adaption.

I would recommend to people teaching children about religion.
