mulan ming-na wen interview

When Ming-Na Wen first stepped into the recording booth in 1995, she couldn’t anticipate the legacy that Mulan would leave — becoming one of the most beloved Disney animated movies, and getting remade into a live-action film more than 20 years later…in which she would make a cameo that made social media explode. Nor could she anticipate that she would become one of the faces of the expanding Asian roles in Hollywood, with a career marked by firsts: first Asian actor cast in a regular role in a soap opera, first all-Asian-led cast in a major Hollywood film in The Joy Luck Club, first Asian Disney Princess.

“I think, definitely with this business, it was part luck, part timing, and maybe some destiny,” Wen told /Film in a Zoom interview ahead of the first-ever release of the animated Mulan on 4K UHD. “I think we’re all destined for something.”

And it seems that Wen was destined to appear in Mulan, both as the star in the 1998 animated classic, and in a buzzy cameo at the end of Niki Caro‘s 2020 live-action Mulan, in which she was “passing the baton” to the new Mulan, played by Liu Yifei. It’s a cameo that almost didn’t happen, Wen said, but thanks to director Caro and producer Jason Reed, and a quick-thinking hair and make-up department, Wen was able to make her cameo in a loving homage to the animated film.

Find out how the cameo came together in our full interview with Ming-Na Wen ahead of the 4K UHD release of the animated Mulan and the Blu-ray, 4K UHD, and DVD release on November 10, 2020.

But on the plus side, you’ll be able to turn the subtitles on and figure out what the hell everyone in this movie is mumbling about.

lord of the rings 4k box set

Finally, the journey is at an end: The Lord of the Rings trilogy is getting a 4K box set. Uh, oh yes…there’s also going to be a Hobbit 4K box set, but it’s okay, you’re among friends here – you can admit you don’t care about that. Peter Jackson‘s epic journey through Middle-earth remains a major cinematic achievement, and fans (like me) have been wondering when we’d be blessed with 4K releases. While an official announcement from Warner Bros. has yet to arrive, links to pre-order the upcoming releases went live earlier today, and Lord of the Rings trilogy star Sean Astin confirmed the impending release as well.
