Disney Dreamlight Valley’s Best Very Lucky Villager Theories

A "very lucky villager" is coming to the Eternity Isle, but who are they?

The developers have only hinted at who the upcoming characters will be in Disney Dreamlight Valley, leaving it up in the air as a surprise. The “very lucky villager” hint, in particular, has us speculating just who we can expect. Here are some of the very best theories so far.

Who is the Very Lucky Villager in Disney Dreamlight Valley?

Plenty of potential Disney characters can eventually appear in the Valley, from the list of leaks or not. However, in the Eternity Isle roadmap, the hint specifically said to expect a “very lucky villager” in early spring 2024. That hint narrows down the search a bit, making us ponder who all the “lucky” Disney characters are and who fits the best in the expansion’s current setting.

Reddit is filled with discussions about upcoming characters, but one particular thread has some great ideas about who the “lucky” villager could be. Here are some of the best theories I came across and why they could actually work.

Oswald the Lucky Rabbit

Oswald the Lucky Rabbit has been one of the most prominent theories about the upcoming villager. Although he’s not as well known as a Disney character — being a classic Mickey Mouse character — he does fit the role perfectly as a token “lucky” character. He also recently appeared in other Disney games, like Speedstorm, making it even more likely he could arrive in the Valley. He would fit in well since we already have so many great Mickey Mouse characters.

Cri-Kee

Another one of the luckiest characters from Disney is Cri-Kee from Mulan. Although he is a very tiny character, Mulan has already been teased to arrive sometime soon, so it makes sense that we’d see some characters from the film. Cri-Kee’s whole character is themed around his luckiness, so he certainly fits the description. The only reason he wouldn’t work is because of his size and inability to speak. He would fit better as a companion for those reasons.

Gladstone Gander

Another lesser-known character who is tokened for his luckiness is Gladstone Gander. Gladstone is part of the Duck Tales series, themed around Donald Duck and the other ducks of the Mickey Mouse universe. He is very similar to Scrooge McDuck in his greediness, but in contrast, he is much lazier and relies on his luck to get him everything he wants. This makes him almost the perfect candidate for the role. But is he too similar in appearance and personality to Scrooge for them to add him?

Mushu

Another of the best theories for our “lucky villager” is Mushu the Dragon from Mulan. Although he isn’t necessarily known to be lucky, he is a guardian and protector. He is more of a doable character than Cri-Kee since he can actually speak and is a little larger in size. 2024 is also the year of the dragon, so could that be reason enough?

Lucky the Dalmatian

Another speculation is a character whose very name is the word Lucky. From 101 Dalmatians, Lucky earned his title when he almost didn’t make it at birth but was revived by Roger. If the hint was literal, Lucky could very well be a good candidate. However, I don’t know how he’d fit in with the current setting and story of Eternity Isle right now.

Aladdin

Although he’s not mainly known for being lucky, Aladdin is said to be the “diamond in the rough.” He would fit in perfectly with the Aladdin events in Eternity Isle, especially with Jafar as the main character we’ve worked with so far. It would make sense for Jafar to have him locked up, but the question is, would they add him without Princess Jasmine by his side?

Flynn Rider

Flynn, or Eugene from Tangled, is another “diamond in the rough” type of character who has luckily escaped and gotten away with things for most of his criminal career. He is another character from a film already present in the game, making him a more likely candidate. His Scramblecoin piece is already available, meaning his character is potentially designed and ready to go. I’m just not sure he’s lucky enough to be our mystery character.

Genie

Another Aladdin character that could easily fit in with the story and events happening at Eternity Isle is Genie. It makes sense for Jafar to keep him locked up, the same as Aladdin, being someone whom Jafar tried to exploit before. Depending on how far they’ve exaggerated the lucky theme, Genie could be a contender.

Jiminy Cricket

If crickets like Cri-Kee are lucky, then another iconic Disney cricket could also fit the bill — Jiminy Cricket from Pinocchio. He’s a wise and faithful counselor to Pinocchio, and even though he isn’t explicitly known as lucky, he makes a more interactive character choice than Cri-Kee.

Asha

Asha is from one of the newer Disney films, Wish. She may be the biggest stretch when it comes to the “lucky” hint, but she does have some luck on her side as she wishes upon stars and has miracles come true for her. She would make an excellent addition to the Valley, even if she isn’t the character for this particular role.

These are some of the theories I came across on Reddit, but there’s no guarantee who this mystery character is until it’s revealed to us closer to launch. Who do you think is the “lucky villager?”
