The Prince of Egypt is available on 4K Blu-ray
It will be the first time the film has been released in 4K Ultra HD and will include special features like “The Making of The Prince of Egypt,” which gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the film’s production, and “The Basics of Animation: The Chariot Race,” which explains the process that went into creating one of the film’s most memorable scenes. The film’s breakthrough visual effects are highlighted in a special extra. At the same time, directors Brenda Chapman, Steve Hickner, and Simon Wells offer their insight into the creative process in a commentary track.
Unfortunately, only some specifics about the remastered film version have been revealed. Nonetheless, a restored version of the short by Dreamworks Animation was shown for the first time at the 2018 Annecy International Animated Film Festival. The film was eventually released on Blu-ray, but not with this cut. The classic is now available in 4K Ultra HD. The upgraded edition first shown at Annecy may serve as a blueprint for the latest physical media issue, though specifics are yet unknown.
On March 14, 2019, The Prince of Egypt will be available on 4K Blu-ray.
