Disney+’s The Mandalorian headed the list of ‘in-demand’ digital originals for Ireland in the week beginning August 31, according to the latest data from Parrot Analytics.

Parrot Analytics analyses the demand for recent popular digital titles across international markets, based on the application of artificial intelligence to expressions of demand across social media, fan sites, peer-to-peer protocols and file-sharing platforms. The analyst illustrates demand expressions based on how much more popular a charted title is than an average TV show.

The other titles in the Irish top 10 included Cobra Kai from Netflix at number four, with Netflix also taking the number five, six, and seven slots.
