The Mandalorian Is The Most In-Demand Series In The World

The Mandalorian Is The Most In-Demand Series In The World

The Star Wars spin-off has proved incredibly popular since it landed on Disney+

Since it was released last month, The Mandalorian has been a smash hit, with critics and fans going so far as to say it has saved the Star Wars brand.

So it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that the spin-off has become the most in-demand series on the planet.

Research carried out by Parrot Analytics found that it was more popular globally than some of the biggest shows in TV history, despite only being available on Disney+. The new streaming servic is yet to launch in the UK.

The site has said that in the third week since its release, Jon Favreau's new series was '31.9 times more in-demand than the average title on a global basis'.

And when that's compared to the likes of Game of Thrones, The Crown and Stranger Things - which scored 28.3, 15 and 19 times more popular than the average title respectively - that's even more impressive.


The series is set in the Star Wars universe, five years after the events of Return of the Jedi, and follows the adventures of Mandalorian bounty hunter Dyn Jarren.

And one of the biggest draws of the series has surely been Baby Yoda. To clarify, the character isn't actually called Baby Yoda, nor is it the Yoda we all know in baby form, as the series is set after his death.

The character is in fact just a younger version of the same species, though we don't know the name of Yoda's species for some reason. Indeed, he isn't even a baby, he's 50-years-old - but this is young relatively speaking, when you consider Yoda died at the ripe old age of 900.

But despite rave reviews and cute aliens, it doesn't mean the show is perfect.

Fans love Baby Yoda.

Fans of the show recently thought they had spotted a gaffe in the fourth episode of the Star Wars series, having noticed an unexpected visitor coming into the frame, during a scene with the titular character and a widow called Omera.

Shortly after the 16-minute mark in 'Sanctuary', when Dyn Jarren (Pedro Pascal) is chatting to a widow on the planet Sorgan, a mysterious object comes into view towards the top of the screen - something that many viewers think could be a boom mic.

It does look like a boom mic, to be fair.

One YouTube user uploaded the clip, explaining that their wife had spotted the mistake.

Others on Twitter had also spotted it, with one tweeting: "Anyone else catch the boom mic in The Mandalorian at the top right of episode 4!?"

Can't please everyone, can you?
