Star Wars: Episode I Ahsoka Reportedly On Its Way To Endor, Down 50% From Obi-Wan Kenobi

Viewership numbers for Star Wars: Ahsoka Episode 1 on Disney+ are on track with Andor but are down 50% from the Obi-Wan Kenobi premiere.

According to data from viewership tracking organization Samba TV, 1.2 million households watched the first episode of Ahsoka, Master and Apprentice, in the United States within the first six days of its availability.

This matches the 1.2 million who watched the critically acclaimed premiere of Andor in September 2022, slightly below The Mandalorian season 3 premiere of 1.7 million in March 2023, and down 50% from the 2.4 million for Obi-Wan Kenobi in May 2022.

The titular character has primarily appeared in animated shows to date, including The Clone Wars and Rebels, although he made a brief appearance in The Mandalorian Season 2.
