The Mandalorian remains a fan favourite on Disney+: which Star Wars productions it has surpassed

New data reveals that Disney+’s The Mandalorian is still the most popular Star Wars series on the streaming channel.

The series premiered in November 2019, when Disney+ launched in the US, and has since become a fan favorite.

The adventures of Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) and the lovable Grogu (“Baby Yoda”) have continued to attract the attention of audiences everywhere even as new productions based on Star Wars stories have emerged.

The Mandalorian has been joined by two more Star Wars series since its 2019 premiere: 2021’s The Book of Boba Fett and this year’s Obi-Wan Kenobi. The former proved to be a continuation of Mando’s story in the second half of the season, alongside Boba’s own journey for healing and redemption. The second brought Ewan McGregor back to the small screen alongside Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader/Anakin Skywalker.

The Mandalorian, a smash hit in the Star Wars universe

But new data straight from Nielsen shows that The Mandalorian is still the most watched Disney+ series. Data for the first four episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi showed that the series racked up 3.3 billion minutes of viewing in the US, while the first four episodes of The Mandalorian season 1 racked up 2.2 billion minutes, or half the current number of Disney+ subscribers. However, looking at it as a whole, the latter is still the winner.

While viewership data can be misleading, it’s pretty clear, through a variety of factors, that The Mandalorian remains the most popular Disney+ show in the Star Wars category.

From the plethora of new characters and worlds to “Baby Yoda,” viewers can’t seem to get enough of this production. With many more Star Wars series on the way, it will be interesting to see if The Mandalorian will continue to stay on top, over time, especially with the release of the highly anticipated Season 3 in February 2023.
