‘The Acolyte’ Gives Disney+ Its Best Series Opening of 2024

Our Show Times

A substantial number of Disney+ users followed The Acolyte over its first few days on the streamer.

Disney+ says the Star Wars series recorded the biggest opening for a show on the streamer so far this year, with the premiere episode recording 11.1 million views — i.e., the equivalent of that many complete showings of the 42-minute episode — worldwide over five days. (That equates to about 426.2 million minutes, or 7.77 million hours, of watch time.)

The Acolyte fell somewhat shy of the most recent Star Wars series premiere on Disney+: Ahsoka drew 14 million views over its first five days in August 2023. It’s on par with the debut of Percy Jackson and the Olympians in December, which had 13.3 million views over six days — which works out to about about the same daily average (2.22 million views) as that of The Acolyte over five days.

Disney+ had earlier noted that The Acolyte’s opening day gathered 4.8 million views.

Created by Leslye Headland, The Acolyte is set in Star Wars‘ High Republic era and follows the investigation into a crime spree that will pit a Jedi master against a figure from his past. The series stars Amandla Stenberg, Lee Jung-jae, Dafne Keen, Charlie Barnett, Carrie-Anne Moss, Joonas Suotamo, Manny Jacinto, Jodie Turner-Smith, Rebecca Henderson and Dean-Charles Chapman.
