Who is that girl I see?🗡😘 🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺 This almost didn’t happen. Me, in the most elaborate period costume and makeup, in New Zealand, on the set of @mulan, with my daughter Michaela, about to shoot a very big scene. How did I get here? Well, it was quite a huge undertaking! I am BEYOND thankful to #agentsofshield producers, @Disney, my team, Jason Reed & @nikicaro who all worked so hard to make this possible. The costume, makeup & hair dept were incredible! The sweetest, most fun and talented cast & crew!😍It was just meant to be. My cameo was also a BIG secret. In fact, I am only permitted to post NOW! Even though it’s been 3 days of many fans’ & casts’ postings as well as numerous articles that already came out since its debut. The enormous outpouring of joyful surprise, excitement, and even tears from Mulan fans made all the effort worth it! 😁 What an incredible gift to have such diehard fans as part of my life and career for over 2 decades!!! Thank you a gazillion times!!!🙌🏼😍 I am overwhelmed by your love and emotions. You are all in my heart! ❤️❤️❤️❤️I love each and every one of you to the ends of the universe! 😍😍😍😍 This one is for you. YOU are my #reflection. 🙌🏼❤️ #connectedforever #mulan #fullcircle #grateful @mulan @disneyplus The legacy of Mulan continues in this epic film.

In the new live-action adaptation of Mulan, Ming Na Wen can be seen introducing Mulan to the Emporer of China, a symbolic passing of the torch! A perfect moment for this legendary Disney Princess.

Her post reads:

I got to share a very special moment with my baby girl. Priceless life experience. Thank you to everyone who helped to make this happen. 🙌🏼❤️ Thank you to all the Mulan fans who wanted this when the film was first announced. I❤️U. What an incredible journey with this beloved @Disney warrior princess. 🥰🌺

How Sweet! Twenty years after the animated Mulan film, Ming Na Wen shared a special moment with her daughter on the set of a new Mulan movie. We really appreciated this smart well-placed cameo in Mulan as it brings everything full circle.

You can catch Ming Na Wen in other Disney owned franchises such as Marvel’s Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D and The Mandalorian.
