Yeah, but it was only one disc! How much can you get on one disc? It didn't seem very much to me.
It was mostly technical stuff too, making-of. NO deleted scenes, not in animatic, storyboard version, NADA.
Showing us an actual story meeting with the artists and how this movie evolved? A step-by-step process, not just "Oh, here's how we did the chariot race..." You could find that on the Internet.
Showing a discussion between the DW people and the religious leaders who were consulted...(if any of them were taped)
All throughout the commentary, the directors were like: "Oh, this originally started out to be like that...." or "this scene was longer" or "Moses was originally supposed to be like this..." So...How about actually SHOWING us some of this stuff???? (Or at least letting us hear the original "Voice of G-d" as it had been conceived beforehand?)
That's what I mean by deleted scenes...even if just in the storyboard stage.
A Katzenberg commentary, so at least people will know that he does more than "executive produce" (whatever that means)
I know there was at least one song cut out of the film IE: "Brotherly Love".
How about showing us some of that?
More stuff from their research trip to Egypt and how it inspired them. That was really cool.
What about recording sessions, or artists' commentaries? Pixar does this.
Multi-Language feature? They only have this for the "When You Believe" song. Since this film was released all over the world, why not have AT LEAST 3 or 4 extra languages on the disc? Why not Hebrew, for that matter?
According to Amazon, this was all they had. I think there's plenty of room for more....

Also, even though it was an hour long, I saw the exact same Making-Of featurette on HBO when the movie first came to theaters. DW does the same thing now, unfortunately.
There was also a feature on TV: "The music of Prince of Egypt" with the videos of the musical artists who recorded the country/inspirational songs for the pop POE album. The talk about the film. This wasn't included either.
You can’t just have your characters announce how they feel! That makes me feel angry!
