Seven years ago now, just before the Tom Cruise-led “The Mummy” opened, Universal Pictures released an official photo announcing their ‘Dark Universe’ initiative.

The plan was to build a cinematic universe akin to Marvel, but for the Universal classic monsters. However the failure of “The Mummy” sunk those plans and within months the projects were dead.

All that remains is a video logo and a photo… until now as Universal is reviving the branding (albeit with a redesigned logo) for one of “five epic worlds” that will become a part of the Universal Orlando theme park.

The company announced Universal Epic Universe – a brand new multi-world experience coming to the Floria locale in 2025.

Over 50 “unique and compelling experiences” will be packed into the five different worlds which are: Celestial Park, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Ministry of Magic, Super Nintendo World, How to Train Your Dragon – Isle of Berk, Dark Universe.

Just like the ditched film initiative, Dark Universe aims to reimagine Universal’s classic monsters into an “ominous and chilling experience” which includes Dr. Victoria Frankenstein as a major character.

Epic Universe will feature “breathtaking, multi-sensory environments, impeccable design and innovative technology throughout”.
