This action-packed superhero origin story follows Marvel’s first Asian protagonist, Shang-Chi, as he grows up training to be an assassin. He comes of age and attempts to leave behind a life of crime, but the terrorist organization by the name of Ten Rings comes calling, and Shang-Chi finds his father, Wenwu-- AKA The Mandarin-- at the helm of the entire evil operation. It’s jam-packed with new and familiar faces -- including Simu Liu, Awkwafina and Tony Leung Chiu-wai -- joining or reprising their MCU roles.
As if this couldn't get cooler, Disney+ Day will also introduce IMAX Enhanced on the app. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and other select Marvel Cinematic Universe films will be available to stream in IMAX's expanded aspect ratio for the ultimate movie theater experience right at home. This means subscribers will see up to 26 percent more picture for select sequences -- in other words, more on-screen action!
