Even though it’s not good to promote piracy of shows and movies, Star Wars‘ The Mandalorian just became 2020’s most pirated series.
According to Comicbook, The Mandalorian season 2 has outperformed Game of Thrones to become the most pirated TV show of 2020. The Disney Plus series based on the Star Wars franchise was also among the top 3 most-viewed titles last year.
With this, GOT‘s streak of being the most pirated TV show ends here.
“The Mandalorian” is already an iconic series!
The last season of Game of Thrones aired in 2019 and was downloaded from many torrent websites. Recent data from TorrentFreak shows that The Mandalorian is the most-downloaded TV series on BitTorrent. The Boys, Westworld, Vikings, Star Trek: Picard, Rick and Morty, The Walking Dead, The Outsider, Arrow, and The Flash are also on the list of top ten.
Speaking of the show starring Pedro Pascal, its second season gained a lot of love, just like the first part in 2019. Fans discovered new secrets, which also included Baby Yoda‘s real name, Grogu!
Pascal played Din Djarin, the famous bounty hunter, who goes on a new journey of giving back The Child to a Jedi Master. The second installment saw many new characters like Bo-Katan Kryze and a live-action version of Ahsoka Tano. Boba Fett made a return, and not just that, the ending revealed his own spin-off title as well! It’s scheduled to arrive at the end of 2021.
Upcoming titles on Disney Plus in the Star Wars universe
Meanwhile, there are many new surprises in store for the lovers of the Star Wars franchise. Last year, during the Disney Investor Day event, it was officially announced that several new Disney Plus titles are coming soon.
The highly-anticipated shows include Andor, Obi-Van Kenobi series, Lando, Star Wars: The Bad Batch. Star Wars: Rangers of the New Republic and The Acolyte are also among those on the list to arrive in the future.
Apart from them, it seems like the world will become even bigger in the next few years. Because there are speculations of a fresh reboot of all the films in the franchise, it may happen to keep in mind the poor reception received by past installments in the last five years. Well, it looks like a great idea from the side of the makers, but only time will tell if the fans really like this new beginning or not.
Coming back to The Mandalorian, then all the die-hard fans are now waiting for the third season. It’s likely to arrive later this year.
