LA Comic Con has added a new headliner, Ming-Na Wen!

The actor has been in some of the biggest genre favorites of the last few decades. She currently stars in the Star Wars series The Mandalorian as Fennec Shand. She’s also made her mark in the Marvel universe as Agent Melinda May in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. And of course, she voiced the title character of Mulan in Disney’s 1998 animated classic.

“We couldn’t be more excited to have Ming-Na Wen join LA Comic Con for the first time! She is a terrific actress with great range, and is the only person we know who has been a Disney Princess, a kick-ass Marvel S.H.I.E.L.D. operative, and a feared Star Wars bounty hunter and assassin,” said Chris DeMoulin, CEO and General Manager of LA Comic Con parent Comikaze Entertainment. 

The Mandalorian fans can be extra excited for this con; Ming-Na Wen joins previously announced co-star Giancarlo Esposito at the event. Other big name talent set to appear include Zachary Levi (Shazam!, Chuck, Tangled); Bruce Campbell of Evil Dead fame; Superman himself, Tom Welling (Smallville, Lucifer); Tom Kenny (voice of Spongebob Squarepants); and comic book legend Frank Miller, known for Sin City and Batman: The Dark Knight Returns.

Early Bird 1-session passes now on sale

LA Comic Con also announced today a limited time offer on one-session event passes. For the 2021 event, LA Comic Con has opted to release passes in 5-hour sessions, rather than full-day passes. 

“There are really two reasons for the one-session passes. First, we do not know what attendance or crowd density restrictions the LA Department of Public Health may have in place in December, so we need to plan ahead for that. And second, our guest research shows that the average fan comes to the show for about five hours, so choosing either morning or afternoon will reduce crowding for everyone,” explained DeMoulin.

In the event that the city doesn’t impose crowd restrictions on the December convention, LA Comic Con may opt to convert one-session passes to one-day passes. But don’t worry – either way, you don’t have to miss any of the action.

“For fans who want more, we have 3-session passes, and will have other session upgrades available closer to the show,” said DeMoulin. “Also, keep in mind that each one-session pass comes with a free password for the digital streaming for the other half of that day – so you can catch any panels you want to see from the other half of the day on your phone or laptop.”

The early bird deal on one-session passes launches today for a limited time. You can purchase yours here.

LA Comic Con will run December 3 – 5, 2021 at the LA Convention Center.
