Disney CEO Bob Iger announced during D23 Expo actress Ming-Na Wen has officially joined the cast of Jon Favreau’s live-action Star Wars series The Mandalorian. Details on Wen’s character and how she will be fitting into the story line of the series were not immediately revealed.
Lucasfilm announced the official cast of The Mandalorian back in December. The series will be arriving on Nov. 12 via the new Disney+ streaming service.
Ming-Na Wen is set to become part of yet another major Disney franchise. At D23 today, Disney CEO Bob Iger just revealed that Wen has joined the cast of the upcoming Disney+ series The Mandalorian.
Wen’s character wasn’t revealed. Her previous Disney history includes voicing the title character in 1998’s Mulan and Agent Melinda May in the long-running Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD. With a Star Wars role now under her belt, Wen has basically scored the Disney hat trick.
