*pretends to be shocked*
they deliberately left out Danny Glover, Whitney Houston, and Mariah Carey and forgot to mention that Sandra Bullock and Jeff Goldblum have Jewish heritage
In a story important to Jews and Christians, they hired Jews and Christians
Also completely left out Ofra Haza who played Moses’ mother and is legit 100% Israeli.
You guys are fucking exhausting.
The Prince of Egypt: *consults with countless scholars from all three Abrahamic religions to make sure they were telling the story correctly, hires notable black and Jewish talent for the voice cast, taps the guy who played Coalhouse Motherfluffing Walker in “Ragtime” (a show all about racial tensions in America) on Broadway to sing one of the film’s most beautiful songs, taps the same Israeli singer to reprise her role as Yochaved in almost every foreign dub of the film, and is generally much more respectful to its source than any live-action Biblical epic released in the past fifty years*
Tumblr: “But why are there white people???????”
Also Ofra Haza, the absolute queen she was, sings in every dub of this film. In every language. Queen.
