Marvel's Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings: Release date and everything we know
Marvel's Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is expected to stream on Disney Plus in mid-October, possibly at no extra cost to subscribers, after it plays in theaters exclusively for 45 days. Chapek also indicated Shang-Chi would head to Disney Plus right after that 45-day window in theaters, setting up the Marvel flick to become available to stream there in mid-October. "The prospect of being able to take a Marvel title to the service, after going theatrical, [in] 45 days will be yet another data point to inform our actions going forward," Chapek said, referring to Shang-Chi and Disney Plus, during Thursday's conference call about Disney's fiscal quarter earnings. Thursday's comments were the first indication Shang-Chi's next stop after theaters would be Disney Plus. Shang-Chi is expected to be streamed on Disney Plus at no added cost. While all movies on Premier Access so far hit Disney Plus the same day as theaters, Disney stressed Thursday that it values flexibility in how it decides to release movies while circumstances keep changing. Creating a new way to charge for Shang-Chi on Disney Plus in mid-October would be an easier hurdle to clear than suddenly switching the movie to include same-day Premier Access, which would provoke an outcry from theater chains and other partners.
