Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will arrive on Disney+ this November, as Disney prepares a bumper line-up of new titles to celebrate what it calls Disney+ Day.
Friday 12th November will see the Walt Disney Company mark its second anniversary celebration, and it will be marshalling Marvel’s latest blockbuster to honour the occasion.
The film stars Simu Liu as Shang-Chi, who must confront the past he thought he left behind when he is drawn into the web of the mysterious Ten Rings organisation. The film also stars Tony Leung as Wenwu, Awkwafina as Shang-Chi’s friend Katy and Michelle Yeoh as Jiang Nan, as well as Fala Chen, Meng’er Zhang, Florian Munteanu and Ronny Chieng.
The film was released in cinemas on 3rd September, avoiding the day-and-date digital release strategy used for Disney’s recent blockbusters, including Jungle Cruise, Cruella and Marvel’s Black Widow. Now, the film will head to Disney+ on 12th November, where it will join other new releases from Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, National Geographic and Star,
On the same day, Jungle Cruise will also be available to all Disney+ subscribers, along with new Christmas remake Home Sweet Home Alone, the Disney animated series Olf Presents, an animated short spin-off from Luca called Ciao Alberto, a short from The Simpsons, Season 2 of The World According to Jeff Goldblum, a special showcasing the origins and legacy of Star Wars bounty hunter Boba Fett, and Dopesick, a drama starring Michael Keaton.
The day will also feature a “Disney+ Day fan celebration”, featuring news, first looks, new trailers, exclusive clips and appearances from Disney+ creators and stars.
