Elijah Wood Charmed This Lucky Animal Crossing: New Horizons Island
Elijah Wood too plays the stalk market in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
The turnip trade has become a hot commodity in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, with players able to make millions in bells thanks to the community working together and opening their islands when they get a spicy price. Everyday people on Twitter are tweeting how much their stores are offering for turnips and opening their gates for anyone to come in and make some money, apparently including celebrities.
Once the call goes out online that an island is open with a high selling price on turnips people start to flock to these islands, lining up in front of the store in single file. One user, Jessa, posted on Twitter that her turnip prices were selling for 599 bells each, only to have Elijah Wood slide into her DMs.

Apparently, the Lord of the Rings star DMed her if he could have her Dodo Code in order to visit her island and sell his turnips. Once it was sent Woods flew over and joined Jessa and her friends who had gathered for the once in a lifetime event.
Woods was reportedly very kind, asking for permission to gather fruit, complimenting his host on their island decorating skills, and even posing for some photos with his fans. The Hollywood star was the ultimate island visitor, a role model for how people should act when visiting other islands.
Before leaving, Woods made sure to shout out Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson.
Elijah Woods appeared to acknowledge his role in the fun on Twitter, liking a post that showed him turned into a villager, complete with a mustache and scooter as seen in the popular meme. He's no stranger to the video game business, either, with his production company SpectreVision co-developing the atmospheric horror game Transference.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is currently available on Nintendo Switch. For more on how you too can lure a celebrity to your island and make millions on the turnip market, head over to our turnip guide.
