The Movie Database Support

Hi guys,

I don't know if this is the right place for this, but here we go...

I was wondering if would it be possible to create a tool for us to add an image of the characters from wich single movie/TVshow, something like "behind the voice actors" does: http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/movies/Finding-Nemo/ For me it would be an amazing tool, mainly for old movies, which the characters don't look like the actor profile's picture. For series, it would be great to be able to add a character picture fore season.

So, what are the crew's thoughts about this? Do you think that it is a good idea?

P.S. sorry about my english, it's not my first language....

Nothing to say? 😓

It's been a while since your first post, so I'll guess at a correct answer even though I'm not a mod. I believe there is a rule that only actors' images are used for their roles, not images of the characters they play. And I think the only place a character's name is listed is in the credits for a movie or TV show. There is never a picture of the character the actor is portraying, as far as I know, unless it's on a poster picture. (I believe the same is true over at IMDb, so it's probably a standard practice.)

So I'm just guessing that this also applies to voice actors in animations. But maybe a mod will reply eventually if you are patient. They're usually quite busy.

Yeah it has been suggested before and honestly i love the idea!!! Especially for animation indeed. See this thread

I'm also a big fan of the idea. As mentioned in the thread Marr linked, it's something that TVDb does and I think it looks great. Here are a couple of example shows of the character images on TVDb:

Yes, it looks great indeed! Certainly I would have a lot of fun adding some data to this! Maybe in the future?
