Fans are getting some big info about a new character in the upcoming Star Wars series “The Mandalorian”.
Vanity Fair reports that “Mulan” actress Ming-Na Wen will be playing Fennec Shand, an assassin who “crosses paths with Pedro Pascal’s masked bounty hunter midway through the first season.”
Speaking to the magazine, 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.”
As for which side of the force fans can expect to find Fennec on, the actress said, “Thinking that she’s a mercenary, it can go either way. I think it remains to be seen.”
“The Mandalorian” premieres with the launch of the new streaming service Disney+ on Nov. 12.
