Pixar’s latest offering Luca finds huge viewership numbers on Disney +, including a 9% increase in its second week, according to Nielsen’s latest streaming ratings.
The family film easily topped the list of the 10 most viewed movies for the week of June 21-27, with a whopping 1.71 billion minutes watch time, up from 1.51 billion minutes the week before. (Part of the reason is that the second week measured Luca for seven full days, compared to just its opening weekend.)
The latest count equals 18 million complete sequences of the 95-minute movie.
According to Nielsen, about 43% of those who watch Luca are children aged 2 to 11, a demo known to be watched on repeat.
Kevin Hart’s comedy Paternity also drew a lot of laughs on his second outing at 885 million minutes, while Liam Neeson’s new action pic, The ice road, followed at No. 3 with 714 million minutes. Both titles are from Netflix.
Disney Animations Raya and the last dragon – which stayed on the Nielsen chart for weeks – came in at No.4.
After the TV series Manifesto, the film trio held the next three spots on Nielsen’s global list of most viewed streaming programs for the week of June 21-27.
Among other new beginnings, comedy Good on paper scored 279 million minutes for Netflix, according to Nielsen.
Nielsen’s streaming ratings cover viewing on TVs only and do not include minutes watched on computers or mobile devices. The ratings only measure US audiences, not those in other countries, and currently only include Amazon, Disney +, Hulu, and Netflix in its rankings. (WarnerMedia does not publish audience data for HBO Max.)
