What Can We Expect From The NEXT 5 Years Of One Direction?

One Direction has officially been a band for 5 years today, July 23, and the entire internet is observing the big day. There are more things to celebrate that we can even name, but we've got some big ideas about what we can expect during the NEXT 5 years of One Direction!

Niall, Liam, Harry and Louis will replace ALL of the judges on The X Factor, for the rest of time, in search of the only boy bands and girl groups we'll need to listen to for the rest of our lives.

Every Directioner's dream will come true and Zayn will make his triumphant return (and make us all whole again).

1D's next movie will win them all individual Oscars. Harry Styles for Best Actor In A Leading Role!

Wax figure technology will improve to the point that 1D's Madame Tussauds statues become so realistic that they come to life. The new wax band will be called Two Directions, and they'll tour and be wonderful just like the real guys.

The 1D merchandizing will get totally out of hand, going beyond fragrances and makeup and expanding into an entire theme park. You're going to LOVE the rides at One Directionland.

Within the next 5 years, the band's social intiative, Action/1D, will become so big that climate change stops dead in its tracks.

What do you expect to happen in the next 5 years of 1D? Share your ideas with us in the comments!
