Is Hollow Earth Real? 'Godzilla vs Kong' Concept Explained, Plus History of the Conspiracy Theory

One major part of the new movie Godzilla vs. Kong is the journey to Hollow Earth and the conspiracy theory is assumed to be true in the Monsterverse.

So, what exactly is the Hollow Earth and is it real?

The rest of this post will contain some minor spoilers from Godzilla vs. Kong, so beware of reading further.

The theory that the Earth is hollow began with 17th-century scientist Edmund Halley, who proposed that the center of the planet is hollow and surrounded by various layers. Modern-day theorists believe that the interior of the Earth has multiple environments and is habituated by exotic and extinct animals.

Part of the theory also includes the belief that a tunnel to Hollow Earth exists at the poles of the planet. In the movie, the Monarch and Apex teams travel to Antarctica to reach the entrance.

Hollow Earth was introduced to the Monsterverse in the movie Kong: Skull Island and we learned in Godzilla: King of the Monsters that Godzilla was using subterranean tunnels to swim across the globe. In Godzilla vs. Kong, we see the journey to the Hollow Earth and get to watch Kong explore the world inside of the earth.

So, is this a real thing?!

Sorry to break it to you, but there is no scientific evidence that Hollow Earth is a real thing.

The earth has a solid inner core, surrounded by a molten outer core, which is then surrounded by the mantle and the earth’s crust.
