Brie Larson says the Animal Crossing series has always been important to her, so naturally she's up for playing a role in an Animal Crossing movie, assuming such a movie ever gets made. Larson entertained the idea of being in a potential Animal Crossing movie during an interview with People where she discussed her experiences with Animal Crossing and how long the franchise has been a part of her life. Like pretty much every other Animal Crossing fan, she's also been playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons for the past week or so after getting it ahead of its official release date.
Larson, the actress Marvel fans will know best for her role in the MCU movies as Captain Marvel, spoke to People about Animal Crossing and her history with the franchise before being asked if she'd be down for a role in a movie. She said that the of course would be open to it and the she supports Animal Crossing all the way.
"Of course. I support Animal Crossing all the way, through and through," she said when asked about the idea of being in an Animal Crossing movie. "I think it's good for our hearts."
Animal Crossing movies and animations have happened before, but there's no known plan for another one right now. Larson didn't mention in the interview which character she'd want to play in such a movie, but she's already shown in the past that she's got the Animal Crossing villager look down if she ever wanted the role.
