Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU for shortsies) is done and dusted. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was the last MCU flick to complete the phase, but one of the first was Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Unlike the Black Widow prequel, Shang-Chi proved to be an entertaining origin story for yet another MCU hero.

And, honestly, outside of Spider-Man: No Way Home, Shang-Chi might be the best MCU movie of Phase Four. That’s no small feat, given the 24 movies that preceded it, even more so with superhero movie fatigue well and truly setting in.

Read on if you’re keen to check out Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings in Australia.

What is Shang-Chi about?

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is a mouthy title for another MCU origin story. It tells the story of Shaun (Simu Liu) who is living an unassuming low-key life, which he enjoys sharing with his bestie Katy (Awkwafina). If you’ve seen any of the trailers (or even the poster), you won’t be surprised to learn that Shaun isn’t exactly who he says he is. When his chequered past catches up with him, a lot of well-choreographed fights and plenty of laughs ensue.

What is Disney+

Disney+ is the premiere streaming service from the media juggernaut. It released in late 2019 and hit the ground running with popular original series like The Mandalorian and Wandavision, and has continued to pump out originals from its growing portfolio of franchises. After Disney's acquisition of Fox, Disney+ Star was added to the service, increasing the amount of more mature outings on the service from Fox's range of properties (Alien, Predator, Die Hard etc.) 

Disney+ costs $13.99 per month and doesn't offer the typical tiered plan structure of services like Netflix. Instead, it's one flat rate for complete access. TV shows and movies are streamed in 4K/HDR where available, downloadable for offline viewing and can be streamed across four different devices at once.
