Ming-Na Wen - my 146th pick as a Disney Legend

Ming-Nw Wen is my 146th choice to be named a Disney Legend. She has been known by such variants of her name as Ming-Na, Ming Na, Ming Na Wen and Ming Wen.

She is well-known for providing the speaking voice of the title character in Disney's 1998 animated feature film, Mulan and has since reprised the role in most of the character's subsequent appearances, including Kingdom Hearts II, Sofia the First, the Disney Infinity series, and among others.

Many of the other voices actress who played Disney princesses have been named Legends already, including Jodi Benson (Ariel), Paige O'Hara (Belle), Lea Salonga (singing voice of Jasmine and Mulan), Linda Larkin (Jasmine), Anika Noni Rose (Tiana), Kathryn Beaumont (Wendy Darling), Adriana Caselotti (Snow White), Illene Woods (Cinderella) and Mary Costa (Aurora). Plus Carrie Fisher was just elected for her portrayal as Princess Leia. Just this omission is enough to drive an OCD person insane.


She also currently portrays Agent Melinda May on the ABC/Marvel TV series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., June Woo in The Joy Luck Club, and voiced Dr. Hirano in the Disney Channel animated series, Phineas and Ferb. She voices Savannah in Milo Murphy's Law and Vega in Sofia the First. She has been a celebrity narrator at the Candlelight Processional at EPCOT Center.
