Forums - Movies Discussion - Netflix's The Witcher surpasses Disney's The Mandalorian according to 3rd party tracking firm

“[Disney] Pretty much only in the US”? Dude, are we a joke to you?

Anyway, means nothing, no official numbers and the time they tracked is disadvantageous for The Mandalorian.

Cough, Pokemon, Cough.

Pokemon is first in terms of revenue, but I would be surprised if more people on the planet know what Pokemon is compared to how many know what Star Wars is. There's barely anyone in the US that hasn't watched at least one Star Wars movie, and based on the foreign box office I'm sure that many hundreds of millions more outside of the US have watched at least one. Star Wars lack of popularity in China hurts it for sure, since China is like 1.4 billion people, but I still think Star Wars might top Pokemon overall in terms of mindshare. We know that at least 1 billion people know what Pokemon is, because Pokemon Go passed 1 billion downloads. 

Yeah, more people in the US have probably watched at least one SW film. It's a much easier entry price as well. Sadly...don't kill me...I've never watched even one Star Wars film. I once told my co-workers that I'd never really watched one and they all gasped in horror. It's just that I was surprised when I said SW was the biggest IP and someone told me it was Pokemon. I didn't even believe it.

I think more people know about Pokemon than Star Wars, especially in Asia which has the largest population. I suppose Asia= west in Star Wars vs Pokemon, so I guess the question is what do Africans and Middle East people know better Pokemon or Star Wars?

Netflix>disney+
So imho a duuuh

You can frame it in that way, but one could easily frame it in another. The Mandalorian is THE launch show of Disney+, and it's likely that just about everyone who's subscribed to it already has probably watched at least a bit of the Mandalorian. For many, it will be the key reason they signed up to the service as early as they did. Netflix has tons more subscribers, of course, but to the vast majority of them, The Witcher is likely just another show that they may or may not get around to eventually.

The biggest launch game of a console also sells less then a big game on a console with a fat installbase

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Dark Fantasy fans looking for something to root for after GoT's failings. :P

Honestly, it'll be interesting to see how Elric would perform in comparison.

Good. It's an excellent show from an excellent game based on a few excellent books.



Witcher show is amazing, already looking forward to Season 2. Outside of a few Marvel movies, I don't particularly care about Disney.



Interesting stats, what do torrent stats say was the most downloaded lol?

Nah mate. More people know about pokemon 7n my estimation. And regarding Mindshare, I think more people know about Superman than anything else. You can go into the villages of poor countries and they'll have some idea of who superman is while no idea about pokemon or star wars

Nah, India and China alone cross all of the west so no competition there. Plus the middle east I think knows a lot about pokemon but not much about star wars. No clue about Africa. But everyone knows about Superman, that's for sure
