Bruh religious or not there’s no debating that Dreamworks Prince of Egypt (1998) is a masterpiece and one of the most visually stunning works of animation of all time. The parallels between Yocheved and Miriam singing the River Lullaby as a tear runs down their cheek and the wind blows their hair in front of their face? Incredible. The use of hieroglyphics to show how Moses learned that his father ordered the Hebrew babies slaughtered??Ingenious. The duet between Moses and Ramses where the choir chants in the background while you watch the plagues destroy Egypt and Moses is begging Ramses to let his people go and Ramses refuses and it shows them facing each other and then side by side and then Ramses walking away while Moses stands firmly??? Intense. When Moses parts the sea and the Hebrews are walking between the water and lightning strikes in the background, illuminating the silhouette of a giant shark swimming in the wall of water???? Iconic. The entire movie is just absolutely breathtaking and that’s just tea
There was a lot of behind-the-scenes griping at Pixar about how difficult it was to animate the first Incredibles – it was their first movie with all-human characters after all – and in the end, I don’t think they were totally satisfied with the result.
With that being said, I am 100% certain that this is just an excuse to flex on the haters and show how far animation has come in 14 years. And I am totally fine with that.
first movie: “HAIR? YOU WANT US TO ANIMATE LONG FLOWING HAIR?? ARE YOU INSANE???”
Second movie: “and then he turns into smoke that realistically reacts to a ball flying through it… he also turns into realistically flowing water at one point”
This is why was had to wait 84 years…
yeah mycroft has to put up with a lot
