‘Lightyear’ Lifts Off to Number 3 on The Nielsen Streaming Charts

Lightyear may have had a disappointing theatrical run, but its move to Disney+ seems to be the complete opposite. The Toy Story spin-off rocketed to number 3 on the Nielsen streaming programs chart, raking in 1.3 billion minutes viewed after its premiere on the streamer.

Lightyear is number 1 on the movie list, beating out Sony’s hit action-adventure Uncharted. You can take a look at the top 10 streaming programs via Nielsen below.

The film follows Buzz Lightyear operating as a space ranger who, after being marooned on a hostile planet with his commander and crew, tries to find a way back home while confronting a threat to the universe’s safety. Lightyear is the same movie Andy watched as a kid, which ultimately lead him to getting the famous toy we see in Toy Story.

Lightyear was co-written and directed by Angus MacLane in his feature directorial debut, produced by Galyn Susman, and stars Chris Evans as the voice of the titular character, with Keke Palmer, Peter Sohn, Taika Waititi, Dale Soules, James Brolin, and Uzo Aduba in supporting roles.
