From “Mulan” to Marvel, Ming-Na Wen now joins the Star Wars series: “The Bad Batch”


PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) – A new episode of the Star War animated series: “The Bad Batch” was released on Friday on Disney +.

It follows elite and experimental clones as they weave their way through an ever-changing galaxy.

Action News spoke with the famous actress who lends her voice to one of the main characters.

From the Disney princess to the Marvel universe, including “The Mandalorian” and now Star Wars: The Bad Batch, Ming-Na Wen is a Disney Hall of Famer.

She also proudly calls herself a Pennsylvania girl with big dreams who still pinch herself.

23 years ago, Wen became the voice of the legendary Disney Princess “Mulan”.

This was only the start of his journey.

Wen was inducted into the Disney Legends Hall of Fame and starred in “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” and “The Mandalorian”.

“Being in one of the most iconic scenes with Luke Skywalker in The Mandalorian blows my mind,” Wen said.

Now his Mandalorian character Fennec Shand is animated in Star Wars: The Bad Batch, a sequel to The Clone Wars.

“I can’t wait to learn more about who Fennec is,” she said. “I like that the hosts also let me down, little things like that. It blows my mind.”

Wen grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

“I love love, I love Pennsylvania,” she adds. “I’m a Pennsylvania girl through and through.”

When the live-action movie “Mulan” hit theaters last year, Wen made an appearance alongside her daughter Michaela.

“It’s so precious that she is a part of this whole Mulan journey,” Wen said. “Mulan is so special to me. I love that she is classic and she continues to inspire the next generation.”

There are 16 episodes of Star Wars: The Bad Batch in all. A new one comes out every Friday on Disney +.
