Trivia Edit

  • Gandalf is the one who manipulated events for Bilbo and Thorin to meet which inadvertently caused Bilbo to find the One Ring and cause the War of the Ring.
  • Gandalf could not remember the names of the Blue Wizards. This was because Peter Jackson didn't have rights to their name while making An Unexpected Journey.
