Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings leads Disney+ Day in November


The second anniversary of Disney+ sees Marvel’s most recent blockbuster come to streaming alongside a bunch of other premieres.

“Remember, remember the 12th of November,” future generations will no doubt say, worshipping at the streaming altar erected to commemorate the enormous amount of viewing we were graciously given to watch on the upcoming Disney+ Day.

Aucklanders, in particular, will delight in finally being able to see Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, which leads a kickass lineup of new Disney+ programming on November 12. As well as the MCU smash, there’s brand new viewing from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic and Star.

Premieres include Emily Blunt and Dwayne Johnson’s Jungle Cruise, new Disney+ Original Home Sweet Home Alone, the less-family friendly Michael Keaton opioid drama Dopesick, a special celebrating the origins and legacy of Boba Fett, and more.
