Is Shang-Chi getting released on Disney Plus. This question has been asked by many Marvel fans since the MCU movie‘s theatrical release on September 3. The short answer to this question is “Yes”: Friday, November 12.
Some MCU fans were uncomfortable going to the cinemas due to the ongoing pandemic that has been affecting the movie industry and the entire world. Some Marvel fans waited patiently to see if Shang Chi would visit Disney Plus.
You’ve been waiting to see Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings from your home. Now, it’s possible: ShangChi will be coming to Disney Plus. It will be launched on the streamer on Disney Plus Day tomorrow.

Is Shang-Chi due to release Disney Plus?
Yes. Disney Plus has an official release date for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. The streaming service will release the Marvel movie on Friday, November 12th, as previously mentioned.
The Walt Disney Company confirmed the news via the official Disney Plus twitter account. Shang-Chi will be arriving on streamer at Disney Plus Day. The studio has the perfect opportunity to bring Shang-Chi into people’s homes through this global celebration of Disney. It’s not surprising then that it was delayed for such an important occasion.
We reported in August that Shang-Chi was to have a 45-day theatrical release following its September 3rd release. We expected Shang-Chi would arrive mid-October at the time. However, Disney decided to delay the release.

Analyse: Shang-Chi may have ended Disney’s in-flux strategy by achieving a strong box office performance
Studios have tried out day-and-date movie releases, so it’s not surprising. It makes sense that studios want to give audiences the option of how they watch newly released content, especially with the Covid-19 pandemic still ravaging the film industry.
Disney decided to release Shang-Chi in only theaters, despite this.
According to Box Office Mojo, Shang-Chi has earned $430 million worldwide so far since September 3, according to the latest figures. This is more than Black Widow, and depending on how Spider-Man are viewed, Shang-Chi may be the biggest Marvel movie at the box office in 2021. When it comes time to decide how to release Marvel movies, Disney should be paying attention to Shang-Chi’s box office success.
