Pixar’s Soul became the first feature film to top Nielsen’s weekly streaming rankings. The Pixar movie made an impressive debut at No. 1 for the week of Dec. 21-27. That’s quite an achievement for the holidays!
Soul captured about 1.67 billion minutes of viewing time — the equivalent of almost 16.7 million full runs of the 100-minute film. Bridgerton (1.2 billion minutes) and The Midnight Sky (1.11 billion) claimed the third and fourth spots on the chart. The Office, whose last full week on Netflix before moving to Peacock delivered 1.44 billion minutes of viewing time.
A second Disney+ property, The Mandalorian, remained in the top 10 a week after its season finale, drawing slightly more than a billion minutes of viewing time. Even though Soul won the top spot, it’s still very impressive viewership numbers for both Disney+ properties!
Soul explores that spark inside of everyone that makes life worth dying for. Though that may look different to each individual and sometimes we get lost along the way, it’s never too late to find your purpose, inspire others, and chase after your dreams.
Soul features the vocal talents of Jamie Foxx and Tina Fey, Angela Bassett, Phylicia Rashad, Ahmir ‘Questlove’ Thompson, Phylicia Rashad and Daveed Diggs.
