The Shang-Chi Disney Plus release date has been revealed, and the Marvel blockbuster will be part of a special event called Disney Plus Day in November.
Shang-Chi will be available to stream on Disney Plus from November 12 at no additional cost. Previously, it was believed the film would be available on October 18, as that date marked 45 days after the movie's theatrical run. That period of theatrical exclusivity has seemingly been lengthened, though there's potential Disney could release the movie under its Premier Access scheme.
The Disney Plus Day event will also feature premieres from Disney's other entertainment-related corners, including a new special celebrating the Marvel Cinematic Universe "with an exciting look toward the future."
Beyond Marvel, Disney Plus Day will include a special celebrating Boba Fett's origins (who first appeared in the original Star Wars Holiday Special), the release of Jungle Cruise for free to all subscribers, the debut of Home Alon sequel Home Sweet Home Alone, and an animated short from The Simpsons that "pays tribute" to the other big brands of Disney Plus. Of course, the most exciting part is still the Shang-Chi Disney Plus release date.
"The inaugural Disney Plus Day will be a grand-scale celebration of our subscribers across the entire company," Disney CEO Bob Chapek said in a press release. "This day of appreciation brings to life our mission to entertain, inform, and inspire fans and families around the globe through the power of unparalleled storytelling, and will become an annual tentpole event to be amplified across our global businesses."
