Wanda of Wonders

The first Marvel series on Disney+, WandaVision, has become the most in-demand TV show across all platforms, data research agency Parrot Analytics reported ahead of the Hollywood heavyweight revealing it had notched up nearly 95 million subscribers.

Following a relatively soft first week, where it rattled between #7 and number #35 worldwide, WandaVisionhad been the second or third most in-demand series since January 22, when episode three was released.

On February 5, the same day episode five was released featuring a widely discussed shocking ending, the Marvel series finally catapulted to the number one series worldwide, and has remained there ever since (as of February 7).

The last day for which we have data available (February 7), WandaVision was an incredible 111.2x more in-demand globally than the average TV show worldwide.

Parrot Analytics attributed WandaVision’s popularity to its weekly rollout.

WandaVision’s rise to number one worldwide is a testament to the weekly release strategy employed by Disney+ – which has also helped lifted the streamer’s flagship original The Mandalorian to the world’s most in-demand series during its runs – as well as the strength of Disney+’s pre-established IP.”

Meanwhile, Variety reports Disney+ added more than 8 million subscribers in just one month, “from 86.8 million paid subscribers as of Dec. 2. 

“It also now tops Disney’s original projections of landing up to 90 million subs for Disney Plus within four years.”

The trade papers says growth was spurred by the premiere of Pixar’s Soul on the platform and the culmination of S2 of The Mandalorian.

“And Disney is investing big money into originals to keep the streaming train powering forward — and to retain existing subscribers.

“At its investor day in December, the company outlined a slate of 105 movies and TV series, 80% of which are targeted for its direct-to-consumer streaming services, under the Star Wars, Marvel, Disney Animation and Pixar brands.”
