Marvel Studio’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is still packing in audiences in theaters, but those hoping to stream Shang-Chi online have some good news as well: the latest Marvel superhero flick is now available to stream on Disney+.
While Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow received a hybrid release in July, premiering simultaneously in theaters and on Disney+, plans to release Shang-Chi concurrently on the streaming service were shelved by Disney earlier this summer, with the studio choosing to give it a traditional wide release in cinemas around the world.
However, Shang-Chi is now on streaming, and you can watch Shang-Chi online exclusively on Disney+.
When is Shang-Chi Coming to Disney+?
You can now stream Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings online on Disney+. The film officially arrived on Disney+ on November 12, 2021 — a.k.a. “Disney+ Day.”
Disney+ has now acquired much of the Marvel catalog, which includes both old shows and movies, and new releases, like Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
In addition to Shang-Chi arriving on Disney+, November 12 also saw new content releases across all of the Disney+ brands, including new releases from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic.

How to Watch Shang-Chi Online Free
Don’t want to pay for a Disney+ subscription? There are a few ways to get Disney+ for free, so you can watch Shang-Chi online for free.
Verizon Unlimited customers can get six months of Disney+ for free, as part of Verizon’s “Disney+ On Us” deal. The offer is valid for both new and existing customers on select Verizon Unlimited plans. Sign up for the deal or see if your plan qualifies here.
Another way to get Disney+ for free is through Amazon. Right now, Amazon is offering six months of Disney+ free streaming when you sign up for a subscription to Amazon Music Unlimited. The six-month deal is open to new Amazon Music subscribers; if you’re already subscribed to Music Unlimited, you’ll still get three months of Disney+ free with your current plan.
Grab one of those free deals now and have Disney+ to instantly stream Shang Chi and the Ten Rings online free.
Will Shang-Chi Be on Disney+ Premier Access?
While films like Black Widow, Cruella and the live-action remake of Mulan were released on Disney+ Premier Access, which required subscribers to pay an additional $29.99 fee to stream the films online, you’ll be able to stream Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings for free — no additional pay-per-view costs necessary.
Since Shang-Chi was already in theaters for 45 days before its VOD and streaming release, Disney decided not to charge a Premier Access fee.
