Disney may insist on returning to the first movies, but that does not mean you will have to wait long if you prefer to watch at home. The company celebrates the second anniversary of the launch of Disney + on November 12 with the streaming debut of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings – and yes, it’s free. It’s not entirely surprising when Disney said that the movie window of the Marvel movie would cut it in half, but it’s good to know exactly when you can start streaming.
More people will have access to Disney + at about the same time. The service will be launched the same day in South Korea and Taiwan and will reach Hong Kong on November 16. This is probably the biggest expansion for Disney + so far in the region after its launch in Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand.
Disney + Day also features a ‘look to the future’ of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If you are not a fan of superheroes, you have universal access to Jungle Cruise, a special Boba Fett origin, House Sweet House Alone and shorts paired with Frozen, Pixar’s Luca and The Simpsons.
The accumulation of content is not a total shock. In addition to the anniversary, all of these expenses can help prevent a wave of Amazon and Netflix titles arriving at the same time. At the same time, it could continue Disney’s streaming momentum through what’s left of 2021.
