As it turns out, many Disney Dreamlight Valley players are against Star Wars and Marvel characters coming to the game

Where's Baymax?

Disney Dreamlight Valley has thus far focused on classic Disney and Pixar characters, invoking a feeling of reminiscence and childlike wonder while interacting with them. There is, however, a whole other side to Disney, but players evidently don’t want them in the Valley.

Marvel became a part of the Disney family in 2009 when it was purchased for 4 billion USD. Then, in 2012, Disney acquired LucasFilm for 4.02 billion USD, making it the owner of both Star Wars and Indiana Jones

Recently, discourse has resurfaced about the possible inclusion of Star Wars or Marvel characters in Disney Dreamlight Valley, and players have been very vocal about their distaste at the idea. 

In short, players do not want Star Wars or Marvel characters in their Valleys, and they have good reason. Dreamlight Valley’s focus on classic characters appeals to those who grew up with old-fashioned animated movies, and there is still a long list of characters who have yet to make an appearance – Snow White, Baymax, and Winnie the Pooh, to name a few. 

That said, players aren’t entirely adverse to the idea of Superheroes and Jedi joining the game, but they do express their hopes that it would be a DLC akin to A Rift in Time, giving players the choice to exclude it from their personal Valley if that’s their choice. 

With the recent announcement of a Fornite-adjacent Disney game, players are hoping that Marvel and Star Wars characters will be included there, rather than in Dreamlight, but we’ll have to see what comes in future updates. There seems to be no hint of them arriving in the Valley any time soon, at least, according to the latest roadmap.

Where do you stand on Star Wars and Marvel in Disney Dreamlight Valley?

I’m on the side that most people seem to be on – it doesn’t seem necessary and there are plenty of other games out there where Marvel and Star Wars shine bright, Dreamlight Valley doesn’t need to be added to the list.

I’d be okay with a DLC, as long as the setting was appropriate and I could keep characters separate. While the idea of Goofy and Darth Vader having a nice chat on the beach is humorous, it doesn’t quite fit with my idea of the Valley. In a game that’s so personalized, giving people a choice seems like it would be the best move in this case.
