What 11 Fictional Characters Would Look Like If They Were Real People
Many movies are based on novels that were written in different times. The writers create their “universes” and pay careful attention to detail, including the characters’ appearances. But movie directors might have their own opinions of what the characters should look like, even if the writer gave a thorough description of the entire image on paper.
We at Bright Side decided to “ask” AI to recreate the appearance of book characters based on the description written by the authors. And in the bonus section, you will see what a real-life Little Prince would look like.
