Ming-Na Wen joins the cast of The Mandalorian

'Agents of SHIELD' star will appear in the highly anticipated 'Star Wars' live action series.



From Deadline: Ming-Na Wen, already a Disney staple as the voice of Mulan in the iconic original animated film and as a star of ABC's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., has been confirmed as a cast member of The Mandalorian, the upcoming Star Wars universe series for Disney+.

Ming-Na Wen Joins Cast Of ‘The Mandalorian’, Securing Disney Franchise Trifecta

Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed the news Friday during D23 Expo, where Wen was one of the recipients of the annual Disney Legends honors. No word about her role in The Mandalorian -- the first live-action Star Wars series -- but if you ask me, they're wasting everybody's time if her character isn't at least a little bit badass.

But here's the first official trailer for The Mandalorian:



The Mandalorian follows the travails of a lone gunfighter in the Outer Rim and takes place three years after the events in Return of the Jedi, after the fall of the Galactic Empire and before the emergence of the First Order.

The series, from executive producers Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni, stars Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, Carl Weathers, Omid Abtahi, Werner Herzog and Nick Nolte.

The Mandalorian premieres November 12 on Disney+.
