The Falcon And The Winter Soldier has had the most successful launch of any programme on Disney+, the streaming platform has announced.

The Marvel show launched on the service last week.

The superhero programme overtook Marvel Studios' live-action series WandaVision and the second series of Star Wars spin-off The Mandalorian.

A tweet from Disney+'s official account said: "Marvel Studios' The Falcon and The Winter Soldier opens as most-watched series premiere ever on #DisneyPlus."

The Falcon And The Winter Soldier was directed by Kari Skogland while Malcolm Spellman was the head writer. The series follows on from Avengers: Endgame and sees Sebastian Stan reprise his role as Bucky Barnes for the spin-off series alongside Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson. The series also stars Daniel Bruhl, Emily VanCamp and Wyatt Russell.

Disney+ is the dedicated streaming platform for Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic.
