The animated film The Prince of Egypt is banned in Egypt.

Other films banned in Egypt includeSadat, a biopic about the country’s former president (probably for political reasons), Jesus of Nazareth, and Bruce Almighty (both probably for religious reasons). Also, somewhat randomly, Egypt also banned Family GuyPokemon, andThe Matrix Reloaded. There’s no telling yet whether IMDB will need to update its list of movies (and TV shows) banned in Egypt given the current changing political climate. Egypt was also not the only country to ban the Prince of Egypt. Malaysia banned it out of concern that the movie was “insensitive” to people in the country with different religions.
