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+.

Buy: Disney+ Subscription at $7.99

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.

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.
