Even though so many horrible things happened during COVID-19, there has never been a better time for streaming platforms. The best way to prevent the spread of the virus is to stay home and to escape the realities of our current situation, viewers log into their various accounts to think nothing. As for Netflix, The Willoughbys it is turning out to be a runaway success.
The animated movie, which came out on April 22, has been viewed 37.6 million times in just one month, according to Netflix, who made the announcement on Friday. The broadcasting company shared this information on its Twitter page.
There are some factors to consider when taking this information. One, Netflix only records one view per account, meaning those who have watched it multiple times still only count as one view. That's impressive considering that there are certainly numerous cases where children saw it three or four times.
However, the other factor is that the movie only has to stream for two minutes to register as part of the Netflix metrics. They are not exactly hard data. There is also a massive caveat that Netflix is a giant company that generally doesn't share its ratings with the public. So take what they share with a grain of salt.
But the success of The Willoughbys it's in line with other recent animated features. Trolls World Tour made over $ 100 million for Universal in digital sales alone. Disney Pixar & # 39; s Ahead, which was the last major release before theaters began to close, has seen a surge in audience after landing at Disney Plus.
Between the excitement of mining, the continued fascination with its top 10 charts and now The WilloughbysNetflix seems to be thriving during these difficult times.
