Animate Anyone AI is an AI program by Alibaba Group that claims to convert still images into motion videos. The program was promoted as AI, using videos showing people standing still alongside a video of them dancing, supposedly manipulated by the user. Videos of "Animate Anyone" alongside GitHub links were shared on Reddit and X in late November and early December 2023, with some users expressing doubts about the efficacy of the program, and others expressing apprehension about how it can be used wrongly.


The earliest known post about "Animate Anyone" was posted to GitHub[1] by "Alibaba Group" on November 28th, 2023. The GitHub page contained links to a research paper and a YouTube video, hosted by YouTube account Hookszdp (shown below). It is unclear if the program is legitimate.

On November 29th, X[2] user @hirochuu8 posted a video showing examples of the program animating still images, gathering over 20,000 likes in four days (seen below).


On November 30th, 2023, Redditor /u/Novita_ai posted a clip of the AI in action to /r/StableDiffusion,[3] gathering over 1,000 upvotes. Later that day, Redditor /u/Oreegami posted another clip of the AI in action with the title, "Turning one image into a consistent video is now possible, the best part is you can control the movement," gathering over 2,000 upvotes in four days (seen below).[4]

On December 3rd, X[5] user @ijbolistani made a post warning against how such a program could be used to make deep fake videos, gathering over 90,000 likes in a day (seen below, left). Also on December 43rd, X[6] user @8teAPi commented on how the program could be the "end" of the TikTok influencer (seen below, right).

I just want this tech to become forgotten and for AI-bros to get shot into the sun.

Hollywood executives have already ruined movies flooding them with green screen and special FX, I don't want the same to happen to content on the internet.
