After driving the direct-to-consumer service to an incredible first day on 12 November, then becoming the most requested series in US TV a week later, Disney+’s original series The Mandalorian is now the most in-demand series in the world says data from Parrot Analytics.

In the vernacular of the Star Wars spinoff, Parrot Analytics says that the live action series has now made the jump to hyperspace, leaving the competition far, far away, overtaking formidable global rivals such as Netflix’s Stranger Things, The Crown, The Flash and HBO’s Game of Thrones. For the seven days ending 1 December 2019, The Mandalorian was 31.9 times more in-demand than the average title on a global basis. In comparison, The Crown achieved 15.0 times the average, Stranger Things registered 18.9x, The Flash 21.6x and Game of Thrones managed 28.3 times.

For the first two weeks of its run up to 23 November, Parrott found that The Mandalorian nearly tripled its demand week-on-week from Disney+ viewers in the US, Canada, Australia, the Netherlands Puerto Rico. In doing so it ended the 21-week reign of Netflix’s Stranger Things as America's most in-demand digital exclusive series. For the last week of the fortnight, The Mandalorian was 93.5x more in-demand than the average US title.

And only three weeks after its debut, Parrott added The Mandalorian is now in the running for the Most In-Demand Series Debut in the World at the upcoming Global TV Demand Awards. Other contenders in this awards category include Amazon Prime Video’s The Boys, HBO’s Chernobyl, Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy and Apple TV+’s See.
