Audience Demand For Original Content On US Platforms

Disney+’s US share of demand for digital original series peaked in December 2019 when The Mandalorian aired its season one finale. It had 7.6% demand share for digital originals then and hasn’t gotten back to that level since. New originals like WandaVision will be important to maintain and grow its share of demand.

2019 vs 2020 - Which Disney+ originals are most in-demand in the US?

The Mandalorian is still Disney+’s major original series debut. The next best release is High School Musical at 19x the popularity of the average TV show in the US, for the 60 days post-premiere.

However, none of its 2020 releases are a match for The Mandalorian. In 2020, the most successful Disney+ original has been The Right Stuff with 8 times the demand of the average TV show in the US.

WandaVision - Disney+'s next big hit?

Parrot Analytics has been tracking US pre-release demand for WandaVision and has found that the show thus far has managed to attract the equivalent of 64% of the pre-release demand of The Mandalorian.
