Journey to The Hobbit: #AskGandalf

Ask Gandalf!

Sir Ian McKellan graciously answered questions live on Twitter under the hashtag #AskGandalf — this is why Twitter is a wonderful thing!

RT @shhhhgrogs: Sir Ian, is there anything special that you kept, like Gandalf’s staff or hat, either from the Hobbit or LOTR? #AskGandalf
I was given Gandalf’s hat by Peter Jackson. And his staff. And I already had Glamdring, which I keep with a couple of umbrellas and the sticks that Leigh Teabing used in the Da Vinci Code. And if you wonder why you don’t see the big keys to Bag End in #TheHobbit, it’s b/c they’re hanging up on my terrace overlooking the Thames in London.

RT @Allan_isumi: Have you ever said some quote of Gandalf in your routine day, Sr Ian? #AskGandalf
Visiting schools, I have warned students that if they don’t revise hard for their exams: “You shall not pass!”

RT @GilbertLowe: @TheHobbitMovie @ianmckellen I don’t have a dad. I always wanted my dad 2 b a wizard. Will u b my dad? R u my dad? #iloveu
I used to have hair like yours, so who knows… You should ask your mum.

RT @TrollingGnome: @TheHobbitMovie #AskGandalf DO YOU LIKE BACON GANDALF?
Yes, indeedy-deedy. Crisp and salty.

Oh, Sir Ian! Why are you so incredibly adorable and charming?
