Download PDF for this date

The three movie moguls who comprise DreamWorks SKG have announced their first full-scale animation project – “Prince of Egypt,” a film based on the life of Moses.

Steven Spielberg, who with Jeffrey Katzenberg said David Geffen heads DreamWorks, will be involved in a supervisory capacity, said his aide Marvin Levy.

“The film will be of a scope and on a scale never seen in animation,” Levy added.

Torah scholars and the general viewing public will have to wait until 1998 for the film’s release.
