SHANG-CHI AND THE LEGEND OF THE TEN RINGS Merchandise Reveals Best Look Yet At The Great Protector

SHANG-CHI AND THE LEGEND OF THE TEN RINGS Merchandise Reveals Best Look Yet At The Great Protector

The teaser trailer for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings only scratched the surface of what we can expect from the film, and some new merchandise offers a detailed look at a mythical creature!

Marvel Studios shared the first trailer for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings earlier this week, but it seems that only scratched the surface of what a crazy film this will be. 

While leaked Funko Pops have already revealed The Great Protector, a mythical water dragon of some sort, a much closer look at the creature has now been showcased in another round of merchandise for Shang-Chi's big screen debut. Likely a fresh, less stereotypical take on Fin Fang Foom, The Great Protector appears to be an ally to the master of the martial arts. 

In Chinese culture, dragons are strongly associated with water and weather. They are believed to be the rulers of moving bodies of water, such as waterfalls, rivers, or seas, and it seems Marvel Studios will lean heavily into that mythology in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

The film's teaser trailer did a solid job of introducing us to Shang-Chi, but it's looking a lot like future trailers will reveal more about the character's ties to his home's real-life mythology.
