You’d Never Guess That This Is The Most Popular Title Streaming on Disney+

Disney+ (or DisneyPlus) is one of the most popular streaming services around, and for good reason. With over 500 films and 7,500 TV episodes, the streaming service is full of content, including original series. However, when you think of Disney+, you probably think of classic Disney titles such as The Lion King (1994), Beauty and the Beast (1991), The Jungle Book (1967), and more.

You may also think of classic Pixar titles such as Finding Nemo (2003), The Incredibles (2004), the Toy Story series, and more. Thanks to the Walt Disney Company’s purchases in the 2000s and 2010s, you’ll also find Marvel and Lucasfilm titles, which have both become synonymous with Disney’s name by now. However, one purchase that may not be synonymous with the Walt Disney Company just yet is 21st Century Fox.

This purchase took place in 2019, so it’s still incredibly recent by many Disney fans’ standards. As a result, titles such as films from the Ice Age series (and original series inspired by the Ice Age series) can be found on Disney+. But the most popular Disney+ title owned originally by 21st Century Fox is undoubtedly The Simpsons. In fact, it’s currently the most popular series streaming on Disney+.

The adult animation is well-beloved for its sharp humor and iconic nuclear family and has quickly become a favorite amongst Disney+ users since the purchase of 21st Century Fox. According to a report by TheWrap, The Simpsons was the most popular title on Disney+ during the month of December, and it was in no competition-even with the myriad of beloved Disney-owned titles on the service.

Not only that, but ever since the merger a few years ago, the writers behind The Simpsons have unlocked a whole new world of crossover possibilities. Many episodes and shorts now contain references and homages that wouldn’t have been allowed before the purchase.

Would you have guessed that fans are loving The Simpsons more than other Disney+ titles? We sure wouldn’t have!
