Ming-Na Wen Says She Was "Nervous" About Being In 'The Mandalorian'

By: Dominic Jones

Back at the D23 Expo in August, we learned that Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D. star Ming-Na Wen would have a role in The Mandalorian, the upcoming live action Star Wars series coming to Disney+.  Her involvement with the series was announced by Disney CEO Bob Iger at the Disney Legends award ceremony, where Wen was being honoured.  After the ceremony, Wen spoke with the media about what it was like to play a role in Star Wars, revealing that she was nervous about joining the series.

Wen explained,

"So when this role came around, I was a bit hesitant. Because I’ve been praying my entire life to be in the Star Wars films. And I was nervous, but thank goodness I said ‘yes.’ I would have been a real idiot not to have. It’s a fantastic character. I can’t talk about her, but I can’t wait for you to see it. It’s coming out in November, and I can’t wait to see the whole series. "

Next to nothing about Wen's role in The Mandalorian is known, but having an actor like her involved in the series is exciting in and of itself!

The Mandalorian is set following the events of Return of the Jedi and follows the adventures of a "lone gunfighter", as he navigates the galaxy in the post-Empire/early days of the New Republic.  The series debuts on Disney+ on November 12th.  If you haven't seen the new trailer, you can check it out below,

The series debuts on November 12th on Disney+, and stars Pedro Pascal as The Mandalorian, Gina Carrano as Cara Dune, Carl Weathers as Greef Carga, and Giancarlo Esposito as Moff Gideon, as well as Nick Nolte, Werner Herzog, Emily Swallow, and Omid Abtahi in unknown roles.  The Mandalorian is executive produced by Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni, with episodes directed by Filoni, Bryce Dallas Howard, Deborah Chow, and Rick Famuyiwa, and Taika Waititi.
