Ming-Na Wen Has One Request for Live-Action 'Mulan' Casting

Ming-Na Wen, who voiced the role of Mulan in the 1998 Disney film, has a request of filmmakers putting together casting for the new live action movie.

When asked what she wants for the actress that will step into the main role, she responded, “That she’s Chinese in her heritage.”

“Even though we’re Pan-Asian, it is specifically a Chinese folklore and I really think that someone with that ethnic background [would] really just add more to the story,” she told ET.

Besides voicing the role in the 1998 animated film, Ming-Na also has voiced Mulan for several other projects over the years. She now plays the role on Melinda May on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
