Netflix has back-to-back animated feature hits on its hands. Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio has debuted at number two on the platform’s weekly global Top 10 list for English-language features and Stephen Donnelly’s Scrooge: A Christmas Carol jumped to fourth in its second week.
Despite the film only launching on December 9, viewers tuned in for 28.08 million hours of Pinocchio over the week of December 5-11. That’s less than 1 million hours behind first-place film Lady Chatterley’s Lover, which was on the platform for all seven days of the recording period.
Pinocchio’s 28 million hours is the second-best three-day opening for a Netflix original animated film this year. Chris William’s The Sea Beast, which landed on the platform on July 8, got 33.5 million viewer hours over its first three days.
