Disney-Pixar’s Soul may not have had the theatrical release that Disney initially expected, but it still found success through being offered on its streaming service, Disney+. The most recent Pixar film was released on Christmas Day and made history on Nielsen’s weekly U.S. streaming ratings. There, it became the first feature film to rank number one for Nielsen’s weekly ratings. This was for the week of December 21-17.
During the course of this week, it achieved 1.669 minutes of streaming, beating out The Office, which had 1.435 billion minutes of stream time before departing Netflix for Peacock. Also on Disney+, The Mandalorian came in fifth place with around 1 billion minutes of viewing. It came in first place the week before.
Currently, Nielsen tracks Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, and Disney+. It is expected that Peacock and HBO Max will be added in the next couple of months. Its ratings are based on the number of minutes viewed by consumers each week.
