Easily the most horrifying line of dialogue I’ve ever heard in an animated movie.
NO BUT THIS WAS SUCH A GOOD GODDAMN MOVIE LIKE THE MUSIC IS FUN AND SUPERB THE CHARACTERS WERE REAL PEOPLE EVEN THE ANTAGONISTS THE WOMEN WERE GREAT IT WAS ALL GREAT. IT DOESNT MATTER IF YOURE JEWISH, CHRISTIAN, MUSLIM, ATHEIST, WHATEVER ELSE IT DOESNT MATTER ITS SUCH A GOOD MOVIE AND ITS LITERALLY ONLY 90 MINUTES OF YOUR DAY AND EXPERIENCE THIS HERE JUST CLICK IT LITERALLY IT WILL OPEN IN A NEW TAB GO WATCH.
also can we point out that none of the characters were white? like damn accurate depictions of Biblical characters
Yo I am al for loving this movie and the fact that they weren’t white.
But the Pharoh had a British accent in this film, I’m not gonna say these depictions were that accurate.
Also Moses most likely had a speech impediment.
They’re also speaking English I mean gosh that’s so inaccurate in and of itself it should be Hebrew amongst the Israelites and Afroasiatic Egyptian for the Egyptians.
And really good heavens there’s no proof that the lord God Almighty speaks like Val Kilmer with a reverb filter.
Would it have been better if Pharaoh had an Egyptian accent, remembering that Egyptian as it was then has not existed as a spoken language for more than a millennium and a half, therefore we have absolutely no idea what accent it carries?
Furthermore, Moses led the entirety of the Israelite tribes to freedom so they could oppress and oppress again, using only the power of his words. He didn’t have a speech impediment.
Actually Moses probably did have a speech impediments, one of the many pieces of evidence being that, in the Torah (Exodus 4:10), Moses describes himself (to God!) as being “Heavy of mouth and heavy of tongue.”
Which is why the Lord replies with the line “Who gave human beings their mouths? Who makes them deaf or mute? Who gives them sight or makes them blind? Is it not I, the LORD?” (in the Bible) and “Who made man’s mouth? Who made the deaf, the mute, the seeing, or the blind? Did not I?” (in the film). There’s a damn good reason that he chooses THREE impediments and one example of people being able-bodied. Because the Lord has chosen Moses, he can put power into Moses’ words, body, and staff (hence the Nile turning to blood and the parting of the red sea. Seriously, don’t tell me you’re more willing to believe those things happened than the fact that a great man of the Bible had a speech impediment.)
So, yeah, Moses most likely had a speech impediment, and it’s most accepted that he had a stutter. Sit. Down.
(Also, it was actually Aaron, Moses’ brother, who did most of the speaking. He was a prophet of the Lord, and was regarded as such before Moses coming to free his people from Egypt.)
The British accent has always been a bit of a laughing point for my family and I, and it’s still damn inaccurate. Like, they didn’t even try for an even remotely realistic/accurate accent.
My point in the original reblog is this: PoC Biblical Characters are great, but a Biblically accurate movie in regards to Moses this film is not. Given that this film was the basis of a week’s worth of summer camp and most of it was our camp counselor talking in detail about the bits of this film that were seriously freaking wrong.But, hey, what the fuck would I know, right?
