A Disney Dreamlight Valley player recreated characters from The Emperor’s New Groove in the game. The 2000 animated movie was inspired by the Incan Empire and follows Emperor Kuzco (voiced by David Spade) who transforms into a llama after taking a magic potion.
Disney Dreamlight Valley lets players explore various realms based on Disney movies, where they can meet a host of characters and accomplish quests to unlock special items they can use to personalize their avatar and space. With Disney having a vast library, there are still many fan-favorite characters missing from Disney Dreamlight Valley, which has prompted many players to recreate them using the game’s customization tools.
The latest recreation that caught players’ attention came from thereal_princepeach on TikTok, who shared their Emperor’s New Groove-inspired avatars in Disney Dreamlight Valley. In the 34-second video, they showcased avatars that looked like Emperor Kuzco, Kronk, and Yzma, with the last two wearing outfit variants—their everyday clothes and scientist gear—based on their original characters. All three characters and their outfits looked accurate, which many Disney fans in the comments seemed to appreciate.
Reacting to the recreations, fellow Disney Dreamlight Valley players complimented the Emperor’s New Groove avatars, also sharing that it’s one of their favorite Disney movies. This isn’t the first customization project that thereal_princepeach worked on, as they previously shared avatars that looked like X-Men‘s Mystique, Suicide Squad‘s Harley Quinn, and even Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe.
In the past, many players made their own renditions of characters from various Disney media and other popular franchises. These include a bunch of Disney princesses who are not in the game yet, like Rapunzel from Tangled and Belle from Beauty and the Beast, as well as non-Disney characters, like Rose from Titanic and Zelda from The Legend of Zelda. What’s impressive about all of them have been the players’ creativity and patience to find the right outfit pieces and tinker with the customization tools to get the right shapes and colors to recreate these looks. On the other hand, it’s also a time-consuming task, which is why many players have asked for a more convenient way to share assets in Disney Dreamlight Valley.
This year, it looks like Disney has big plans for gaming with the full release of Disney Dreamlight Valley, its upcoming trading card game Disney Lorcana, and possibly more to be announced in the future. It will be interesting to see how the conglomerate will continue expanding its magical worlds through the medium of gaming.
Disney Dreamlight Valley is available now on Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
