I love the Lord of the Rings and I love Gandalf. I also love everything J.R.R. Tolkien and and can’t wait for The Hobbit movie to be released…even if it is sans Guillermo Del Toro. The Hobbit is actually my favorite of the whole series and I’m so pumped that Peter Jackson is spearheading the multi-movie project.
I digress though, the reason I’m posting is to tell you that Ian McKellin is on Twitter (@ianmckellen118) and he actually posts messages about the progress of the movies. The most recent being “The films will get made. I suspect we’ll start shooting at end of this year” , “The films will get made. I suspect we’ll start shooting at end of this year.” and “Guillermo Del Toro departs The Hobbit.” How cool is that?
