If you a fan of Disney’s Mulan or Marvel’s Agents Of Shield then you probably know who Ming-Na Wen is. During the Disney Legends ceremony today at D23, Bob Iger announced Wen’s casting in Star Wars: The Mandalorian! Wen has often talked about wanting a role in Star Wars, so this is extremely cool.
“I used to pray to God, Buddha and the Force when I was a little girl. It’s astounding to me, Disney has offered me so much more,” said Wen during her Disney legends acceptance speech today.”
We don’t know quite yet what her role is, but hopefully we get some sort of information on it during the Disney+ Panel later today. I absolutely love her in Agents Of Shield so knowing she’s in Star Wars is super exciting and I can’t wait to see what she brings to the table. Stay tuned for more “The Mandalorian” news. Shout out to Dom from The Star Wars Underworld for the heads up:
