Disney Plus: Shang-Chi, Halloween movies, shows, prices and everything else to know – AppleTV 4 Jailbreak (appletv4jailbreak.com)
Disney Plus has stood out as a breakout success among a wave of new streaming services, thanks in part to its large library of shows and movies and a widening pipeline of originals and exclusives. The biggest ones coming up: Both Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Jungle Cruise will become available to stream at no added cost on Nov. 12 — in the case of Shang-Chi, that’ll be the first time it’s available to stream at all.
Most programming on Disney Plus — like Luca, Loki, The Mandalorian, WandaVision and almost everything else — is available to watch at no added cost to subscribers. But a few theatrical movies, including Jungle Cruise, Black Widow and Cruella, were different. They debuted on the service through what Disney calls its Premier Access model, which made them available to stream the same day the films hit theaters but required a $30 payment on top of the regular price of a Disney Plus subscription.
Now, however, Disney’s latest theatrical releases are hitting cinemas exclusively at first, casting doubt on whether Disney Plus will keep this Premier Access, same-day streaming option alive for any more movies in the future. Free Guy was released only in theaters in mid-August. Shang-Chi was its latest theatrical exclusive, and Eternals is set to come out only in theaters on Nov. 5.
Also, keep in mind: Disney Plus raised prices this year, and last year it eliminated its seven-day free trial for new members. And Disney’s three-service bundle — combining streaming access to Hulu, Disney Plus and ESPN Plus — also went up $1 a month. (More on the bundle below.)
Read on for all the details about Disney Plus’ movies, shows, prices, deals and bundles are below.
When will Shang-Chi be streaming on Disney Plus?
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will become available to stream on Disney Plus on Nov. 12 at no extra cost to subscribers, after it has been released in theaters exclusively starting Sept. 3. (Jungle Cruise is also joining the regular catalog on Nov. 12.)
Previously during the pandemic, Disney released all its new movies on Disney Plus in some way. A number of new flicks, like its latest Pixar movies Luca and Soul, skipped theaters entirely and were available to stream on Disney Plus at no extra cost. Others — like the latest Marvel movie before Shang-Chi, Black Widow — hit theaters and Disney Plus the same day, available to stream only by paying an extra $30 fee known as Premier Access.
But Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is getting back to the pre-pandemic norm of theatrical exclusives. It’s the first Marvel movie released only in theaters since Sony’s Spider-Man: Far from Home came out in July 2019.
