Shang-Chi Release Date on Disney Plus: How and When You Can Watch

Despite the ongoing threat of the pandemic as COVID is shaking the world, the theater industry is slowly picking itself up and movies are starting to get an exclusive cinema release. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is now making its share as it would only be out on the big screen, to date. However, many are asking the question of how and when you can watch it on Disney Plus.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings form part of the fourth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and introduce the titular character, his origins, and the arrival of the real Mandarin, the villain teased as early as Iron Man 3. With the addition of the new hero, Shang-Chi is expected to join the rest of the characters in the MCU not long after his debut.
