Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings won exclusive movie debut, with no Premium Access on streaming. Thus, following the studio’s strategy, the Marvel movie should arrive in mid-October at Disney+.
With the arrival of streaming, Disney defined a rule for movie releases. Films enter the Disney+ catalog at no extra cost after 45 days of their premiere.

In the case of Shang-Chi, the world premiere was on September 3rd – despite having arrived on September 2nd in Brazil. With that, if Disney sticks to the strategy, the Marvel movie arrives on October 18 at Disney+.
Of course this is a prediction. Soon, Disney+ is expected to officiate a date for Shang-Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings.

On Instagram, Simu Liu talked about the importance of Shang-Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings for Asian representation.
“Shang Chi is more than just a movie – it’s a celebration of our culture and a rallying cry for the forgotten, the invisible and the ignored. It’s a reminder to take up space, stand firm and be outspoken.”
