And of course — just like the rest of us — Ms. Wen is concerned about Pixar’s Woody and his Bo-Peep.

Mulan: Pushing Back The Release
The legendary actor linked to The Hollywood Reporter’s post from March 12, which stated:
Disney is pushing the release of its upcoming live-action tentpole Mulan amid growing concerns around the coronavirus, the studio said Thursday. The movie was set to hit theaters in North America on March 27.
Also being pushed is the long-delayed New Mutants, which was due out April 3 via 20th Century Studios, and the Guillermo del Toro-produced Antlers, which was set for an April 17 release via Searchlight Pictures.
Disney is looking into new release dates for all of the titles later this year.
That report also referenced Niki Caro’s Instagram post:

Dear Mulan Fans, Making this film has been one of the most satisfying and exhilarating experiences of my entire career, and I’ve been so fortunate to be on this journey with some of the best cast and crew in the business – people who truly embody the attributes of Loyal, Brave, and True. We are so excited to share this film with the world, but given the current ever-shifting circumstances we are all experiencing, unfortunately, we have to postpone the worldwide release of MULAN for now. Our hearts are with everyone the world over who is affected by this virus, and we hope that Mulan’s fighting spirit will continue to inspire those who are working so hard to keep us all safe. Thank you for all of your enthusiasm and support, and I can’t wait for the day where we will all get to experience this tale of a girl warrior who became a legend together #mulan #yifei_cc #loyalbravetrue With love, Niki Caro
Meanwhile, this nerd and Ming-Na Wen fan is planning to use the coming social distancing time to reacquaint me with three of her best characters!
Ming-Na Wen is, famously, the voice of the animated Disney Princess Mulan, Agent May of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D., and, most recently, Fennec Shand, an assassin in the Disney+ Star Wars series The Mandalorian.
And she owns all of it.
