The official Jurassic World website has been inactive for roughly a year now, showcasing a fictional operational park hub with a few adverts for the Blu Ray. However, the inactivity came to an end earlier today, when the website evolved into a hub for the entire franchise! Sporting a fresh new look, the site now covers a multitude of subjects.
The websites now serves as fun page to learn the latest official news about the franchise, as well as including various facts, current video games, videos and more. I’m personally thrilled to see this change which is something I was hoping would happen for some time – while the new site is currently lite on content, hopefully as time goes on it will add new sections (canon/encyclopedia, editorial content, toys, books, etc.) and further flesh out its existing ones with more content. With the right team and management, the website can further evolve into something great (look to HaloWaypoint.com and StarWars.com for some fantastic examples.)
Thankfully, they also preserved the website created for the fictional Jurassic World park on Isla Nublar, which can be reached by clicking the link on the top of the site (or going directly to islanublar.jurassicworld.com). I wonder if future in-universe websites will be created that reflect the current happenings of the franchise – there’s plenty of room to expand, and Jurassic World 2 is right around the corner! Either way, this hub site is a great fit for the Jurassic Park franchise, and it’s great to see some change and life post 2015.
So, what are you waiting for? Go explore! After that, be sure to keep checking back here for even more news regarding all things Jurassic! Do you like the new look? Sound off in the comments below!
