EXCLUSIVE: Ming-Na Wen, Original Voice of 'Mulan,' Might Have a Role in Disney's Live-Action Remake!
The ABC star added that there is one thing that she’s definitely “hoping for” in the next Mulan. “I would love to have a part in it in some way,” she said. “We’ll see – knock on wood!’
Wen, who continues to voice the role of Mulan on Disney Channel’s Sofia the First and the Disney Infinity video games, dished that she is already having "conversations” about having some kind of role in the film.
“I know the fans really want it and love it. And some of them even go, ‘Well, why don’t you just play Mulan?’ And I’m like, 'Yeah, if it’s Mulan: The Later Years,’” the 53-year-old actress said with a laugh.
When asked which star she’d love to see step into her shoes as Mulan, Wen only has one request: “That she’s Chinese in her heritage.”
She continued, “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.”
