Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie, based on the Joseph story from the book of Genesis, contains more violence than the typical kids' animated musical. Joseph's prophetic dreams show wolves, destruction, beheadings, and birds feeding on human flesh. Joseph's brothers plot against him, selling him into slavery. A woman falsely accuses Joseph of sexual assault. Joseph undergoes horrific trials, from slavery to prison, but overcomes them to rise to a position of power in Egypt. The movie explores how he will deal with his brothers, given his status; will he get revenge, or show forgiveness?

Sexual Content

Potiphar's wife makes romantic overtures to Josesph that culminate in her tearing at his clothes; rejected, she screams for help and accuses him of attacking her. Kisses and embraces between Joseph and his wife Asenath.

Violence

As in many of the best-loved Bible stories, violence is replete. Joseph's dreams contain scary images of wolves and destruction, beheadings, and birds feeding on human flesh. His brothers push him into a pit and sell him into slavery, and a slave auction is depicted. Sordid conditions in jail, including swarms of rats, are part of the story.
