Ahead of The Mandalorian‘s debut on Disney+, it was announced that Wen would guest star in one of the episodes.
Wen currently stars on Agents of SHIELD (which returns for its seventh and final season later this month) as Melinda May, and she voiced Mulan in the original 1998 animated film.
In fact, Wen’s involvement with Disney proper, Marvel, and Star Wars led to her becoming a Disney Legend last year at D23 Expo. Leading up to her Star Wars debut, Wen was open about her enthusiasm for the franchise.
About Fennec Shand
Wen appeared in The Mandalorian‘s fifth episode,”The Gunslinger”, as Fennec Shand, an assassin on the run who becomes the prey of rookie bounty hunter Toro Calican (Jake Cannavale).
Wen’s time on the show was short, but memorable, and the final moments of her episode left some questions behind. As of right now, there are no plans to bring Fennec back in the currently-in-post-production season 2, but seeing as much about the upcoming season is being kept a secret, anything could happen.
Detail Looks on Shnd’s Costume
In honor of May 4, also known as Star Wars Day, Wen shared a more detailed look at Fennec’s costume. And that’s the best glimpse fans have gotten at her entire look, as the episode itself didn’t present many opportunities to get a good look.
The Mandalorian season 2 is currently expected to arrive on Disney+ in October, and with post-production still carrying on despite the ongoing pandemic, fans likely won’t have to worry about a potential delay.
They also won’t have to worry about season 2 being the last, as a third season is already in development. Based on the reception to the first season, expectations are high for Pedro Pascal’s second outing as the titular bounty hunter, especially thanks to the presence of the adorable Baby Yoda.
So yeah, what do you about all of these guys?
