Trivia: 2 differences between The Bible and the Movie. 1) Aaron did not doubt Moses in the Bible. In fact Aaron did most of the speaking before Pharaoh and actually performed some of the miracles. 2) Moses murdered the Egyptian task master. He did not accidentally kill him. Pharaoh wanted to kill Moses because of this, not try to convince him to stay.

Trivia: In the courtroom scene, all the people that have turned to color have to sit on the upper level.
