Hooray for Gandalf!

gandalfAs we all know, The Hobbit will be coming to our local movie theaters....a couple of years from now. Bear with the long wait, ladies and gents! Ian McKellen has confirmed that he will once again reprise his role as Gandalf in this prequel to the Lord of the Rings!

He wrote in his official site:

"Encouragingly, Peter and Fran Walsh have told me they couldn't imagine The Hobbit without their original Gandalf. Their confidence hasn't yet been confirmed by the director Guillermo del Toro but I am keeping my diary free for 2009!"

Now that this is the case, I'm so looking forward to The Hobbit. I just love Ian McKellen as Gandalf! He suits the character sooooo well, right?!
