NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — Google has unveiled a complete list of the top things that were searched for in its annual “Year In Search” report.

From Baby Yoda to Marvel's "Avengers," the year’s most popular searches spanned across everything from viral sensations to newsworthy events and notable stars.

At the top spot was Disney+, the media company’s brand new streaming service that was launched in mid-November.

In the second spot was Cameron Boyce, the 20-year-old Disney actor who died in his sleep after suffering a seizure related to epilepsy in July.

He starred in the Disney Channel show "Jessie" from 2011 to 2015 and also appeared in "Grown Ups" with Adam Sandler and in the Disney hit franchise, "Descendants."
