What’s in the Jurassic Park Timeline?


This is the unofficial Jurassic Park timeline. Though most people associate the franchise with the series of films that were released, the books actually came first. Both the books and the films are included here.

The franchise also had a number of comics that tie-in to the films. However, some of these (particularly those that take place after The Lost World), paved their own continuity, much of which was largely ignored by the relaunch with Jurassic World. However, with a little retconning, you can still keep them, so they are also included.

  1. I personally love your timelines. However, on timelines that aren’t as popular, like Jurassic Park or Harry Potter, they aren’t as updated,like putting in the name of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom or putting harry potter hogwarts mystery on the HP timeline. Great work overall on this timeline, but remember the small things.

    1. Yeah it’s hard to keep up with all the timelines. Especially because I’m going through a lengthy update of everything to the 2.0 version. This loads it on the app and provides a lot more information. I can only afford to spend a few hours a week on this site, and most of that is devoted to keeping the popular timelines updated.
