Disney+ ‘Hamilton’ Holds the Title of Most-Streamed Original Movie of 2020





Hamilton became a cultural phenomenon on Broadway, and Disney+ brought the experience to mainstream media with its release of the musical in July of this year. Four months later, Hamilton holds the crown as the most-viewed streaming title of 2020 so far.

Data from ScreenEngine/ASI acquired by Variety shows that Disney+ holds 8 of the top 30 most-watched titles this year, evidence of the streamer’s rise to success in the big leagues after bursting onto the scene less than one year ago.

Unfortunately, the streamer’s big release of its live-action remake of Mulan didn’t even make the top 5. The film was originally set for a theatrical release, but the date kept getting pushed back due to Covid-19 shutdowns. It ultimately landed at the streamer on Sept 4, under Disney+ Premier Access fee for $29.99 om top of a regular subscription.

Amazon Prime Video claims the second and third spots on the list of most-viewed SVOD films of the year with Borat 2: Subsequent Moviefilm and My Spy.
