A pilot episode of the “Star Wars” film series aired in the United States and Canada on Sunday, with more than 3 million people watching the episode, according to data from Netflix.
The “Star War” pilot episode, which has yet to be screened in the U.S., premiered Sunday night on the Netflix service in the US, Canada, Brazil, Mexico and the U-Korea.
The U.K.-based streaming service, which also hosts a number of other original programming including the “Game of Thrones” television series, has been criticized for its decision to air the episode in the same country as refugees fleeing Syria.
Last week, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said that the United Nations and U.W. governments would work to distribute “a fair distribution of the ‘Star War’ pilot” and other episodes across the world.
The episode of “Star Trek: Discovery” aired on Sept. 21 and features a U.C.L.A. science professor and an engineer.
“Starving Star Trek” will return to the U,C.
l.A., on Oct. 5.
