We might have dream cast Jamie Chung to take the title role in the new live-action Mulan movie from Disney, but fans of the original 1998 animated movie have another choice: Ming-Na Wen, the actress who voiced her! Twitter users are rallying for Ming-Na to reprise her role, this time by doing more than just speaking for her. And guess what – Ming-Na is up for it!

Ming-Na is actually 51 years old, so the chances of her playing the young heroine are slim. She’s also busy starring as Melinda May in the ABC action show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. If she’s not Mulan, we’d love to see Ming-Na have a part in the film as a nod to the original.
