Finally, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings has arrived in theaters. When will this latest entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe be available on Blu-ray and DVD?
If this past weekend was a test, then Shang-Chi passed with flying colors after grossing $90 million over four days at the domestic box office. That’s a record for Labor Day Weekend, surpassing Halloween‘s $30 million plus opening in 2007. It’s the second biggest opening of the pandemic, behind it’s Marvel teammate, Black Widow.
Many believed that Shang-Chi would be the so-called “guinea pig” for the fall slate of films because of unpredictable box office returns during the pandemic. With a successful opening weekend, perhaps upcoming Marvel films, Eternals and Spider-Man: No Way Home, will stay in their current release dates later this fall.
Currently, Shang-Chi can only be seen in theaters. However, due to positive reviews, many would like to watch it at home on Blu-Ray or DVD.
Shang-Chi Blu-Ray/DVD release date
While there is no exact date, Shang-Chi will eventually be released on Blu-ray and DVD. It typically happens a few months after its initial release date.
The first film in Phase 4, Black Widow, premiered in theaters and Disney Plus Premier Access on July 9. The film will be available on Blu-ray and DVD starting Sept. 14., which is just over two months after the release. If the same patterns holds true, Shang-Chi could arrive on Blu-ry and DVD sometime in November.
However, Disney Plus subscribers will be able to watch the film earlier on the streaming service at no additional cost. Since it will only be a 45-day theatrical window, expect the film to arrive on Disney Plus sometime in mid-October.

Marvel Studios’ “Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings” stars Simu Liu as Shang-Chi, who must confront the past he thought he left behind when he is drawn into the web of the mysterious Ten Rings organization.
