During the pandemic, many movie studios and production companies tried to take a different approach to their releases. This is because places like cinemas had to be shut down to curb the spread of the virus, so what these companies did was to release their movies on streaming services.
For Disney, they tried releasing it through Disney+ where those who wanted to watch it on day one could pay a premium to watch it on the day of release. However, as the world is slowly getting back to normal, Disney seems to be reverting back to how they released movies in the past, but the good news is that if you’re a Disney+ subscriber, you won’t need to wait too long.
The company has announced that its latest Marvel movie, Shang-Chi, will be released on Disney+ come 12th of November. This will be completely free for Disney+ subscribers, meaning that if you can wait a couple more months, you’ll be able to watch it without having to pay extra on top of your Disney+ subscription.
Shang-Chi is actually the first Marvel movie in 2021 to be released in cinemas first. Prior to it there was Black Widow which adopted a simultaneous launch, which then led to a contract dispute between the movie’s lead actress, Scarlett Johansson and Disney.
