Former ‘Mulan’ and ‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ star Ming-Na Wen has confirmed she will be returning as the bounty hunter Fennec Shand in ‘The Bad Batch’.
She first appeared as the character in season one of ‘The Mandalorian’ and will now be lending her voice to the younger, animated version of Fennec in the upcoming ‘The Clone Wars’ follow-up. Her character appeared in the most recent trailer.
Do you know how long I’ve had to keep silent about Fennec coming back? This is the first time I’ve been able to talk about it! Dave (Filoni), if you wanted to keep it a secret you shouldn’t have put it in the trailer.
Everybody is saying they just the confirmation. So, yes, it is Fennec! It’s a younger Fennec and she is voiced by me and I’m thrilled and beyond happy that Dave wanted to create more of a backstory for her.
She’s cutting her teeth as a bounty hunter in The Bad Batch…She’s still a loner, a drifter… There’s just a sense of more recklessness about her, just bravado. You know, a young punk. She’s more adventurous and willing to take greater risks because she doesn’t known what the consequences are.Ming-Na Wen – Starwars.com
