Sir Ian McKellen - Notes From lmladris

As Gandalf would say....'A wizard is never late...' , well maybe just a little early. Sir Ian McKellen has finally arrived in New Zealand as filming of The Hobbit is due to start next month. Posting on his personal website, Sir Ian gives a little inside and personal thoughts from New Zealand. The road Gandalf took to get back to Middle-earth is not been an easy one, not it was straight. After many delays and unplanned events, The Hobbit is almost 'good to go'. Sir Ian had the chance to meet 13 dwarves but not Peter Jackson as yet as the director is still recovering from surgery at home, which is why (to use Sir Ian's words) ...

'yet again, I'm here early. Waiting for Bilbo.'
