Starring Simu Liu and Awkwafina, the movie will be released on Disney+ Hotstar on November 12 as part of Disney+ Day.
With magic, well executed martial arts and a lot of the Marvel swagger we see in most Marvel movies, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings has made quite the impression on the cinema world since its release. The movie released globally in theatres on September 3, but in exciting news, Disney has announced that the superhero movie will release on its streaming platform on November 12.
Directed by Destin Daniel Cretton, the movie follows Shang-Chi (Simu Liu), a skilled martial artist who was trained to be an assassin at a young age. Now a young man, he must confront his estranged father, who possesses the Ten Rings, a weapon that could cause mass destruction if not stopped in time.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings stars Awkwafina as Katy, Fala Chen as Jiang Li, Florian Munteanu as Razor Fist, Benedict Wong as Wong, Michelle Yeoh as Jiang Nan and Tony Leung as Wenwu / The Mandarin.
This is Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first movie with an Asian director and a predominantly Asian cast.
Shang-Chi was released in theatres across the world and was unsure how audiences would respond due to the conditions. But the movie became a hit and played a big role in attracting audiences back to theatres once again. Shang-Chi collected $305 million globally (and counting).
It’s the second movie in MCU Phase 4 after Black Widow to begin streaming on Disney+Hotstar as part of the Disney Day celebrations. Though Disney Day will include several debuts, sneak peeks, and previews from the streaming platform, Shang-Chi will be one of its star attractions.
