Pixar’s latest release, Luca, debuted on Disney +. Unlike Marvel Studios’ Black Widow movie, for example, this version was completely free to watch. This also made it a great success.
Luca Originally slated to premiere in theaters, but those plans were eventually scrapped due to the coronavirus. Now the film can be seen on Disney +, where you can see an adventure on the Italian Riviera. We see a friendship develop between a sea monster and a human named Giulia.
Nielsen releases their streaming numbers every week and shows how an outing went a month earlier. This allows Nielsen to come up with fairly precise figures. Now it turns out Luca got off to a good start, almost as good as the first Pixar Soul movie.
Luca turned out to have aired a total of 1.57 billion minutes in its first week. This made the movie a little worse than Soul, which was viewed 1.67 billion minutes in its first week. While Pixar employees are not at all happy with this, the film is doing well.
It also immediately means that the film has been watched 16.6 million times in its entirety. It was before Soul only a hundred thousand more after all. Below we list the full top ten for you. Please note: these are the figures for the United States for the week of June 14 to 20.
