Shang-Chi Out September 3rd in India in English, Hindi, Telugu, Kannada


Shang-Chi comes to India in line with the United States. Disney announced on Friday that the next Marvel movie – the full title is Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings – will hit Indian cinemas on September 3rd in English, Hindi, Telugu and Kannada. There is no mention of Tamil or Malayalam because the theaters in Tamil Nadu and Kerala are not open, Gadgets 360 learned. But when the theaters reopen, Shang-Chi is expected to be available in these two additional local dubbed versions. Shang-Chi will also miss India’s largest theater market, Maharashtra, which will also remain closed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Still, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will be available to the rest of India and those comfortable entering an enclosed, darkened room where you can’t tell who is wearing masks at the same time as its global release . This is different from the previous Marvel title Black Widow, which was released in theaters and on Disney + Premier Access in July – but was missing in both Indian theaters (since they were closed) and Disney + Hotstar (because no Premier Access was missing) . Shang-Chi is getting an exclusive theatrical premiere, a decision the Disney CEO regrets over the past month or something due to the surge in COVID-19 cases in the US.

“At Shang-Chi, we think it’s actually going to be an interesting experiment for us because it only has a 45-day window for us,” said Bob Chapek at Disney’s quarterly earnings meeting last week. “So the prospect of having a Marvel title in theaters after 45 days will be another data point to inform our future actions. But again […] when we planned Shang-Chi, this title should be much healthier [sic] theatrical setting. And at this point unfortunately due to distribution agreements that we have and due to the practical circumstances of last minute changes, [a Disney+ Premier Access release] would not be possible. “

Simu Liu stars in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, along with a cast that includes Awkwafina as his girlfriend Katy, Meng’er Zhang as his estranged sister Xialing, Fala Chen as Shang-Chi, and Xialing’s mother Jiang Li . include, Florian Munteanu as steel blades for the hands Razor Fist, Benedict Wong as magician Wong (from Doctor Strange), Yuen Wah in an unknown role, Ronny Chieng as Shang-Chi’s friend Jon Jon, Zach Cherry as a bus driver, Dallas Liu as Ruihua, with Michelle Yeoh as the mythical city guard Jiang Nan and Tony Leung as Shang-Chi and Xialing’s father Wenwu / The Mandarin. Destin Daniel Cretton is directing, and Kevin Feige and Jonathan Schwartz are producers.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings – the first Marvel Cinematic Universe film to feature an Asian superhero – will be released in India on September 3 in English, Hindi, Telugu and Kannada. It should be available on Disney + and Disney + Hotstar in October, after the 45-day movie window mentioned above.
