Her addition to the “Star Wars” universe now gives Wen a presence in all three of Disney’s universes, the other two being the classic Disney universe and the Marvel Universe.
“Please just keep acquiring all these different franchises, because I just keep getting employed by them. I have hit every bucket list thanks to Disney,” she said during her speech to Bob Iger.
“The Mandalorian,” which will hit the Disney+ streaming service on November 12, takes place in the “Star Wars” universe after the fall of the empire and before the rise of the First Order.
The story follows a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy and will also star Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Nick Nolte, Giancarlo Esposito, Carl Weathers, Emily Swallow, Omid Abtahi, Werner Herzog, Taika Waititi, Bill Burr and Mark Boone Jr.
