TrollHunters: Rise of the Titans Ending Explained
Previously, Jim’s troll hunter amulet was destroyed by a group of wizards, who are called arcane orders. They believed that humans have caused too much destruction to Earth and so it needs to start from scratch. But the only way to do this is to resurrect the three titans and unite them with the heart stone. But the problem is that the arcane orders need all the three titans – Bellrock, Skrell, and Nari to unlock the genesis seals containing the essence of magic. Later on, Nari joins our heroes in the third installment.
Now, this film is all about whether Jim Lake wields the Excalibur. After the amulet was destroyed, Jim began questioning his life purpose. He felt inadequate in a team of superheroes that made elaborate plans to stop the raging titans from ravaging the world. After countless mini battles with legions of monsters, he was able to pull out the Excalibur. He also extracted the time stone which allows the user to alter time. Exactly what Jim did after Toby breathed his last. He succumbed to his injuries from the final battle.
Jim wakes up as a regular teen and waits for Toby. If Jim pushes Toby to become the next Trollhunter, technically it would mean altering time. As we have seen in the Marvel Universe, it can have dire consequences too. It may change the flow of events and who knows even after the ending.
Those who haven’t watched the movie, do watch the movie. I’m sure you won’t regret it.
