New Mandalorian Trailer Reveals First Look At Ming-Na Wen’s Character

Disney has unveiled a new 30-second-long trailer for The Mandalorian ahead of its slated 12 November 2019 release date. The brief teaser gives us our first look at the assassin Fennec Shand, who is portrayed by none other than Marvel’s Agents Of SHIELD and voice of the protagonist in the Disney classic animated Mulan; Ming-Na Wen.

Ming-Na Wen’s Fennec Shand will meet Pedro Pascal’s titular Mandalorian halfway through the first season. Speaking with Vanity Fair, Wen said:

“We got our inspiration really from the name.

The idea of a fennec fox came to mind.

She’s tricky, and yet she’s able to manoeuvre and survive, and be stealthy – so very graceful and agile.

I just love that whole image with the name.”

She also compared her to Han Solo, but with a much more sinister side to her than the dashing Rebellion hero/former smuggler. Wen continued:

“She is definitely someone who’s loyal to herself.

It will evolve, it will change.

I mean, I think that’s what’s so wonderful about creating a new character.

I think she has a good sense of humour about it all as well, which is also fun.

You can’t really pinpoint which direction she’s going to go.”

Fennec Shan is also notable for being the first-ever major female Asian live-action Star Wars villain (or anti-hero). Wen then went on to speak about what Star Wars personally means to her:

“There was all this incredible imagery, but yet there were very few Asians in the films.

Any sort of representation is important and necessary.

And I’m just happy that I got chosen. It was meant to be.

It’s definitely a film that has had such an impact in so many people’s lives, including my own.

As an Asian kid in Pittsburgh, and especially in Mount Lebanon, sometimes you feel very alone and very isolated.

And I think for me, with Star Wars, I connected so much with Luke having these dreams and wanting something bigger and better than being a little farmer in Tatooine.

Just that image of him looking at the binary suns and wishing for more, it always stays with me.”

In the meantime, check out the latest teaser trailer below.
