It’s common to have a Toy Story marathon or a Star Wars movie marathon these days — but have you ever thought of embarking on a “Ming-Na Wen marathon”? D23 has just shared a guide to actress Ming-Na Wen’s Disney career, so if you’re a fan of the Disney legend who has voiced multiple Disney characters (including a popular Disney princess), then what are you waiting for? Head to Disney+ and start watching these Ming-Na Wen masterpieces!
Logically, watching all of Ming-Na Wen’s Disney films or TV shows should begin with the role that made her a big Disney name in the first name: Mulan. The actress and Disney Legend voiced Fa Mulan in the 1998 movie (with Lea Salonga doing the singing), and Ming-Na Wen also reprised her role in the Mulan sequel.
This Disney Legend also has a big cameo in the new version of Mulan from 2020; she announces the arrival of Liu Yifei’s Mulan. You can see her in the photo below!
Adult Disney fans might not know about Ming-Na Wen’s other Disney roles, but Ming-Na Wen actually had a part in the popular animated show Phineas and Ferb (playing Dr. Hirano, the mom of Candace’s friend Stacy) as well as Milo Murphy’s Law (where she played Agent Savannah).

Now you can shift your Ming-Na marathon to an intergalactic one; as it turns out, the voice actress and actress has actually been part of several Marvel series or Marvel shorts! She played the Kree character Phyla-Vell in four episodes of the Guardians of the Galaxy series, and she played a second Kree character in both Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors and Marvel Rising: Heart of Iron.
This Ming-Na Wen marathon will continue to have an intergalactic focus next, since the actress plays mercenary Fennec Shand in both The Mandalorian and the new Star Wars show The Book of Boba Fett (opposite Temuera Morrison) on Disney+. Wen reprised her role to play a younger version of Fennec Shand in Star Wars: The Bad Batch, too!
Have you been following the career of Ming-Na Wen in order to prepare for this movie marathon? Did you already know about all of her Disney, Marvel, and Star Wars acting credits — and were you lucky enough to glimpse her when she visited Disneyland recently to celebrate The Book of Boba Fett?
