A new behind the scenes featurette has been released for the upcoming Disney film, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. In this latest video we get a look at the mystical dagger that contains the time traveling sands, which is the object of desire for everyone in the film.

In this latest featurette we hear from stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Gemma Arterton who play Prince Dastan and Princess Tiana in the film, as well as director Mike Newell and executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer.
