It’s Sunday and time for us to take a look at what’s trending on Disney+ this week and the biggest new entry is the new film “Encanto”, which was released for families to enjoy over Christmas after a 30-day theatrical release window.  The film has been enjoyed by many households around the world over the Christmas weekend.

Christmas continues to make up the majority of the trending chart, with many classic films like “Home Alone” and “The Santa Clause” pulling in massive views on the trending chart.  With adults (including myself) also checking out “Die Hard” over the Christmas weekend.

As per usual, there is a massive difference between the US and UK trending charts, as internationally, Disney+ subscribers continue to binge on major mature shows like “Family Guy”, “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Criminal Minds”, while in the US, Disney Channel shows like “Bluey” and “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” dominate the majority of the trending chart.

    If Disney+ had a better algorithm for trending, I don’t the lists would be that much different this week. They need to remove titles that are constantly on the list. I’m sure there’s Christmas titles that have seen a massive surge in views that deserve to be on the list as opposed to the ones that are always there.
