A Star Wars record has been shattered with the ending of Obi-Wan Kenobi. The conclusion of the series marks a new milestone for the saga.
According to data revealed by Samba TV, the number of users of Disney+ who saw the end of Obi-Wan Kenobi surpassed that of the final episode of The Book of Boba Fett. While The Book of Boba Fett attracted around 1.5 million viewers in just five days with its finale, that of the series of Ewan McGregor He exceeded it by 20%. More than 1.8 million viewers enjoyed the fight between the Jedi Master Y Darth Vader in those five days. This makes the last episode of the show starwars be the most watched finale in the history of the galactic saga to date. We guess the next record could get it The Mandalorian when it returns with its third season.
It is common for there to be a general drop in viewership between the first episode of a Star Wars series or Marvel Studios on Disney+ and their respective endings. Obi-Wan Kenobi was no exception. It opened with a mind-boggling 2.14 million viewers and ended up with 1.8 million. Retention is not bad, taking into account the criticism that the new adventures of the exiled Jedi provoked.
‘The Mandalorian’ fell far short in numbers
On the other hand, it is important to note that Samba TV’s data is based on users who watch a given TV series for five minutes or more. That is, these data could also take into account those who watched the first part of a series for a few minutes and then turned off the television. Or, directly, they removed Obi-Wan Kenobi, they abandoned Star Wars and went to see something else. However, the data works in this way and gives us a rough idea.
In case anyone is wondering, the season two finale of The Mandalorian it drew only 1.1 million viewers during the first five days. That is to say, it stays with 700,000 reproductions less than Obi-Wan Kenobi. That’s why Ewan McGregor’s series has the most watched conclusion to Star Wars history on Disney+. We’ll see if Andor is able to exceed the figures.
