Woman Uses AI To Show How The Characters Of “Harry Potter” Were Supposed To Look Based On Book Descriptions (25 Pics)

There are numerous reasons why people prefer books over movie adaptations. Reading leaves room for imagination. We can visualize the setting and how the characters look from the details given by the author. There are usually no length constraints to a book, while the films are very time-limited. Therefore, the reader gets more essential details in the book than the scriptwriters include in the movie.

The Harry Potter film series is perhaps one of the most successful book adaptations ever made. Some even claim that Harry Potter tops the poll of best book-to-film adaptations. Yet, one of the issues in adapting a book to a film is casting. Although some novels use characters based on real people, it’s not an easy job to find an actor who can convey the book character’s both personal qualities and physical traits. Yet, it seems that Harry Potter’s casting directors did a pretty good job.

One Vietnamese woman, known to her followers as MsBananaAnna, wanted to see what Harry Potter characters would look like based solely on their book descriptions. To fulfill that, she used artificial intelligence. Scroll below to see how AI technologies helped MsBananaAnna recreate Harry Potter characters.

Man Recreated The Appearance Of “The Lord Of The Rings” Characters According To Their Original Descriptions (5 Pics)

Truth be told, writers take the time and utmost precision to describe their characters. Of course, their readers must have an exact mental image in their head rather than have them imagining and guessing what the character looks like. It’s a part of writing that is useful for the audience.

However, when movie industries read novels, they’ll most often ditch these descriptions to the trash and deem them unnecessary. They would just often go with the actor that would go well with the character, disregarding how the author wanted their character to be. And that’s where the artist Ivan Rebikow comes in. Below, he reimagined 5 Lord of the Rings characters based on Tolkien’s descriptions in the books. Scroll down below and see how much has changed!
