Artificial Intelligence transforms classic characters into the style of animations like Corpse Bride, and the director responds to the results: “Disturbing”

Tim Burton was yet another target of Artificial Intelligence, this time to reproduce its style in Disney films. The Artificial Intelligence software used, the midjourney, has already been highlighted for creating false images representing some controversies, such as when AI created images of Pope Francis wearing designer clothes and deceived many on the internet who thought that those were real images of the Pope.

However, in addition to being a power for those who want to distort reality with misleading images, artificial intelligence is also a great tool for thinking about facts and events from another perspective that did not happen. It is from this premise that a Buzzfeed article proposed that AI create scenes from famous Disney films, if they were directed by Tim Burton, director of films such as Alice in Wonderland e Jack's wierd world, famous for their melancholic and caricatured characters.

“Disturbing” was how the director reacted, in an interview with The Independent, seeing his style being redesigned to fit some Disney films by AI. Even though the filmmaker himself admits that some of the images created are “very good”, Tim Burton was completely unfavorable to this type of use of AI in his works:

They made the AI ​​create 'my' versions of Disney characters! I can't describe the feeling it gave me. It reminded me of when many cultures said 'Don't take my picture because you'll be taking my soul'.

Regardless of the result generated by the AI, the question raised by Burton goes against many other criticisms from artists who accuse AIs of plagiarism. “What it does is suck something out of you. It removes something from your soul or psyche; this is very upsetting, especially if it has to do with you. It's like a robot took your humanity, your soul”, stated the North American director, using strong words to define the recreational use of Artificial Intelligence.
