Ever since they announced they were taking an indefinite hiatus in 2015, fans of One Direction have been patiently waiting for the band to return. Well, get ready, people, because they just announced that they’re launching a brand new “immersive and interactive” website in honor of their upcoming 10-year anniversary, and we can’t wait!
According to a press release, the brand new website “will be an immersive and exciting interactive fan experience. The site will take the form of a timeline charting the history of the group, from the first audition right up to the start of their hiatus. It will host an archive of music videos, artwork, TV performances, behind-the-scenes and rarely-seen content, all in one place.”
They’ll also be releasing a new video that “will document highlights of the band’s career, from forming on The X Factor to releasing their single ‘History,’ including clips from music videos, performances and candid behind the scenes video content. And of course the special relationship they have with their fans.”
OMG. For those who forgot, the group (which consisted of Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Zayn Malik) was put together by Simon Cowell on July 23, 2010, after they all auditioned on The X Factor as solo artists. That means that on July 23, 2020, it will have officially been 10 whole years since the brand was formed, so it’s only natural that they have something super special planned to commemorate the anniversary.
Since they decided to go their separate ways, there’s not a day that’s gone by that fans haven’t longed for them to make a comeback, so this brand new website is seriously a dream come true! In honor of the exciting announcement, J-14 went ahead and rounded up everything the boys have ever said about the possibility of them reuniting over the years, so get excited, people!
