The Falcon and The Winter Soldier Opens to Great Success on Disney Plus
It's been announced that Disney+ Original series "The Falcon and The Winter Soldier" from Marvel Studios ranked as the most-watched series premiere ever on Disney+ during its opening weekend. It was also the most-watched title overall for the same time period on a global basis, including in Disney+ Hotstar markets.
Marvel Studios' "The Falcon and The Winter Soldier" stars Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson aka The Falcon, and Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes aka The Winter Soldier. The pair, who came together in the final moments of "Avengers: Endgame," team up on a global adventure that tests their abilities-and their patience. Directed by Kari Skogland with Malcolm Spellman serving as head writer, the six-episode series also stars Daniel Brühl as Zemo, Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter, and Wyatt Russell as John Walker. "The Falcon and The Winter Soldier" debuted worldwide on Disney+ March 19, 2021.
The series is just another huge success for the streamer, after the release of "The Mandalorian" from Lucasfilm and Marvel's "WandaVision".
