Here’s the most-watched Star Wars movie on Disney+, and it’s a real surprise



Star Wars : a divisive saga

With currently nine main films (three trilogies) and two spin-offs, Star Wars is one of the most popular franchises. A saga that has continued to divide due to the choices of thinking heads. First of all George Lucaswhich with the prelogy alienated a part of the audience – in particular due to the midi-chlorians to explain the origin of the Force, or even presenting the character of Jar Jar Binks. Then there were the decisions made under the direction of Disney and Kathleen Kennedy for the final trilogy. Some fans refuse The Last Jedi (2017) by Rian Johnson, although others have fully validated it. And after that, it cannot be said that JJ Abrams managed to correct the situation The Rise of Skywalker (2019).

Today everyone has their own film Star Wars favorite and any attempt to classify the saga is a matter of debate. However, this is generally accepted The empire strikes again (1980) e Revenge of the Sith (2003) they are at the top of the basket. Which doesn’t make them the most watched films Disney+ since the launch of the streaming platform.

The Phantom Menace number 1 in streaming

In fact, while The Phantom Menace (1999) celebrates its 25th anniversary, Variety dedicated a long article to the controversial film. The American media discuss the rather negative reception given to the feature film upon release, which did not prevent its success at the box office, and the perception of three Variety journalists who reviewed the film for the occasion. We thus learn in the first part of the article that it is currently the film Star Wars most viewed in the world on streaming services, then on Disney+.

We can therefore estimate it The Phantom Menace has been rehabilitated, although negative criticism about it remains. For our part, we have never stopped appreciating this work for the great things it offers, such as the podrace, the impressive costumes and sets, or the memorable fight between Darth Maul, Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon. Not everything is perfect, but there are some qualities. Which doesn’t prevent a real surprise that it’s the film Star Wars most viewed via streaming platforms.

We remind you that the entire Star Wars saga is available on Disney+.
