She’s already been named a Disney Legend, but now Ming Na Wen is getting her very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
That means all the children and even grown-ups who pretended to be Mulan, the Disney princess the actress voiced, will get to take photos next to her star.
Fans may also remember Wen for her role as Melinda May on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Fennec Shand in the popular series The Mandalorian, and Dr. Jing-Mei Chen on the hit show ER.
Many others saw Wen as June, one of the daughters in the classic movie, The Joy Luck Club.
Fellow Joy Luck Club alum Tamlyn Tomita, Lauren Tom and Rosalind Chao will join Wen for the star unveiling on Tuesday and are expected to speak.
The star will be adjacent to the famed El Capitan Theatre.
“Ming-Na Wen has had quite an iconic career! As Mulan, she inspired women everywhere to embrace their inner warrior.” said Ana Martinez, Producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, said in a statement. “She has always been a supporter of and has always believed in lifting female artists especially women of color and we’re excited that we’re able to recognize her achievements on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.”
Wen is scheduled to star along with Paul Giamatti and Simon Pegg in the film Peachville.
