In Disney Dreamlight Valley, players can explore a world inhabited by many of Disney’s most iconic characters. Since its release in early access last September, the game has featured familiar faces such as Moana, Scar, and Buzz Lightyear. With so many unique Disney characters interacting with each other, fans can’t be blamed for wondering if Marvel and Star Wars characters could ever participate in the game in the same way. In an interview with ComicBook.com, Gameloft’s Manea Castet spoke about the possibility. While Castet said the team’s current focus is on Pixar and Disney animated characters, he didn’t rule out the possibility!
“So Disney is big. There’s always a big umbrella with a lot of IPs in it. So we’re not closing doors, but there’s no plan that we want to discuss on a stage like that, other than I’d say Disney animation and Pixar,” said Castet. “We really focus on these kinds of characters. There are many. There are also many characters requested by the committee that are not there yet, of course. And that’s what we want to focus on. So nothing to share or add regarding Star Wars or Marvel.”
Since purchasing the rights to Marvel and Star Wars, Disney has largely kept those universes separate from its other properties, aside from the occasional variant cover. Given that, it seems unlikely Dreamlight Valley would bring these characters in, but it seems possible. Finally, Dreamlight Valley already notes that characters like Mickey Mouse and Scar come from different worlds. That said, it looks like Gameloft already has a lot of other characters that will be the first priority, but if fan demand is high enough, we might see some Marvel and Star Wars content in the game one day!
Disney Dreamlight Valley is available in early access on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. Readers can read all of our previous coverage Disney Dreamlight Valley here.
