It’s as if it was only yesterday, when they were walking. Then Harfoot was singing. Today, Mount Doom is exploding in the faces of our yogis. No matter how educated predictions Tolkien fans may have made ahead of this week’s episode of “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power,” nothing could have prepared viewers for the last five minutes of “Udun.” It is, of course, by design, in the form of a volcanic eruption. Which blinded warrior-mode Galadriel (Morphid Clark) and the villagers trapped in its crosshairs.
The writers and filmmakers of “The Rings of Power” got this surprising
It’s easy to guess where the writers and filmmakers of “The Rings of Power” got their inspiration for this astonishing natural(ish) disaster, yet it’s still worrisome to hear about. / During an interview with the film’s Vanessa Armstrong, the series’ VFX producer Ron Ames explained that the scene was designed after the explosion in Pompeii, a real-life tragedy that occurred in Italy in AD 79. Caused by the unexpected eruption of Mount Vesuvius. That disaster immediately buried the ancient city and all its inhabitants. which were preserved in volcanic ash.

“It was a really complicated plan – how do you tell the story of a really devastating environmental challenge?” Ames says of the plotting of the impressive final sequence. “So what we did was we started with the real. We looked at pictures and movies, went back to Pompeii, saw what happened, and read what it really looked like.” In the episode, disaster is triggered by Waldreg (Geoff Morrell). Which wields the dark sword we’ve been thinking of in the Watchtower Stone from the first episode, which floods the local dam.
Aspect Real Life Pompeii Disaster
A moment later, bombs of water explode from the ground beneath the village, followed by a rapid flood that activates the already dormant Mount Doom. Before the credits roll, fireballs have rained down on the village, and Galadriel is completely covered in ashes. There is also what looks like a sort of sonic explosion. A disruption of the wind that knocks everyone out. Many aspects of the harrowing scene seem to have come from the crew’s study of the real-life Pompeii disaster and other volcanic activity.
“Could it happen physically?” AIIMS asks. “And the answer is yes, it can be.” He explains that the effects team used location photography of the cliff edge and waterfall to render visuals of the scene, and created an underground set that they scanned to create the flood shots. Ames also tells what we were seeing just before the explosion. “As the cold water creates a temperature difference in the volcano’s interior, it is absolutely spectacular, almost like a nuclear bomb explosion.”
According to Wired, real-life phreatic eruptions are those that occur when volcanoes come into contact with small amounts of water. causing a steam based explosion. This type of detonation can detonate water, ash, steam and rocky projectiles, but per Wired and the U.S. Geological surveys do not always include much flowing magma. The Mount Doom scenes look to my untrained eyes.
Less destructive than a Plinian explosion
can indicate a terrible explosion. But if that’s the case, it doesn’t mean that our heroes are safe. Although this type of eruption may seem less destructive than the Plinian eruption of Vesuvius. Still it can give out toxic gases. Sometimes serves as a precursor to the main event. As with the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens.
