AI reveals what The Hunger Games characters should have looked like

The Hunger Games franchise is one of the most popular young adult phenomena of all time. Adapted from the book series of the same name by Suzanne Collins, the trilogy was made into four films released from 2012 to 2015, grossing nearly $3 billion worldwide. The books were set in a dystopian future, with North America split into 12 districts, and run by the rich and powerful who live in the Capitol of Panem. Every year, the Capitol forces each district to select a boy and a girl, called Tributes, to compete in a nationally televised event called the Hunger Games. Protagonist Katniss Everdeen, 16, volunteers as tribute for the 74th Hunger Games in place of her younger sister, Primrose; setting off a chain reaction that leads to the districts trying to overthrow the Capitol and their oppressors. Katniss' classmate Peeta Mallark is chosen as the male tribute and the two go on to win the games together.

However, before the games begin, Peeta confesses his love for Katniss, leading them to navigate their relationship as they fight for their lives in the arena. The four films starred Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss, Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne, Josh Hutcherson as Peeta, Woody Harrelson as Haymitch Abernathy, and Elizabeth Banks as Effie Trinket. While some characters strayed a little bit from the books' descriptions, many fans credited the film's costume designer and makeup artists for keeping the characters in line with the novel. Now YouTube channel Screen AI has reimagined what the characters should have looked like based on the original source through artificial intelligence. 'These AI looks accurate to the book make more sense than the actual movie, bravo!' a fan gushed. 'Oh my freaking god, the AI characters look SO much better!' another agreed. 'I am so upset that AI nailed the casting so well, particularly for Katniss - making her an actual POC. I want Caesar's jacket too,' someone else chimed in. Have a look below at how the AI versions compare to the movie.
