Ming-Na Wen is best known for voicing Disney's Mulan and playing Agent Melinda May on Agents of SHIELD, but she's recently become a part of another Disney franchise: Star Wars. The actor recently appeared in an episode of Disney+'s new series, The Mandalorian, as Fennec Shand. Wen has described her character as “tricky” as well as having the ability to “maneuver and survive” and “be stealthy.” Since she's now a part of the Star Wars family, it's no surprise that Wen was one of the many big names to appear at The Rise of Skywalker world premiere earlier this week. The actor has shared many photos from the big night to social media, but her most recent image is especially wonderful. Wen shared a picture of herself chatting with sequel trilogy stars, Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron) and Adam Driver (Kylo Ren/Ben Solo).
“Yeah, we were talking about Baby Yoda. (Lol),” Wen wrote. “Big fan of #AdamDriver #OscarIsaac," she added. "Loved #theriseofskywalker! Go see it."

The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal as the titular bounty hunter, who travels the outer reaches of the lawless galaxy, surviving as a mercenary-for-hire. The series is set shortly after the events of the original trilogy of films and is expected to have a unique approach to the franchise. The cast also includes Gina Carano, Carl Weathers, Giancarlo Esposito, Nick Nolte, Omid Abtahi, Emily Swallow, Werner Herzog, and Taika Waititi as the voice of IG-11.0comments
