The Movie Database Support

 Ongoing Maintenance

Dear TMDb Community,

In the next few months, you might notice some changes on our site. My primary goal is, and always has been, to build the best media database on the internet and in order for me to stay true to that goal, we will be making these changes to enable TMDb to be more robust and reliable than before.

As you might recall from my 2019 recap, I have some pretty amazing plans for 2020 so stay tuned for some really fantastic launches this year!

If you have any questions please contact us at



I was recently trying to add a seemingly previously absent movie to this Database, and after filing in all the details; getting the green light on every category. I tried to Finish but it just gave me the following message:

This movie has some validation errors and needs to be fixed before you can make any edits. The validation failed because:


• is invalid

For more information about how to fix this, please visit this page. (Link to the contribution bible)

Which left me unable to do anything, because it didn’t give any direction on what the exact problem was. Anyone have an idea, would love to find out. relaxed
