Once Upon a Time has found its kick-ass warrior beauty!

Real World: San Diego alumna Jamie Chung has been cast as Mulan in the hit ABC TV show. If you stopped watching Disney princess movies after Pocahontas, Mulan was the Disney franchise’s first foray into Asian heroines. The movie, which came out in 1998, was based on the real-life Chinese warrior Hua Mulan.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Mulan is expected to be a recurring character on the show when it returns this fall.

Congrats Jamie! We can’t wait to see you and Mulan this year!

Once Upon a Time returns to ABC on Sunday, October 23 at 8 p.m. ET.
