New ‘The Mandalorian’ Episode Features Disney Legend and Imagineer Wing Chao. Former Imagineer and Disney Legend Wing Chao made a surprising appearance in Chapter 13: The Jedi of The Mandalorian. WARNING: This post contains MAJOR SPOILERS for The Mandalorian Chapter 13: The Jedi. If you do not wish to know any spoilers about the episode we recommend you stop reading past this point. Thank you!
Wing T. Chao plays a heroic citizen turned Magistrate after Ahsoka Tano and Din Djarin (Mando) help to free a village on the planet Corvus from tyranny in the latest episode. Chao is not the only Disney Legend to make an appearance in the series. Last season Disney Legend Ming-Na Wen (Mulan, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) joined the series as assassin and bounty hunter Fennec Shand, and is also rumored to make a reemergence before the end of Season 2. Disney Fans have been so excited to see Wing Chao make his acting debut and in a role that proves kindness and hope can be found anywhere. Check out these post celebrating Chao’s appearance:
From little projects like masterplanning Euro Disney and leading the design on four disney cruise ships to freeing a walled city that would fit perfectly in a samurai movie.

During the D23 Awards for Disney Legends in 2019, Wing T. Chao said, “My mother always wanted me to be a movie star. For years, I’ve been hoping that Disney would make a kung-fu architect movie.”
I am so proud to see him in Chapter 13 of the Mandalorian. pic.twitter.com/0rggOWYBZA
