Gandalf and the Boys

At what is apparently the grand opening for an upper class candy store, somehow Gandalf, Frodo and Merry all got together for this rather awesome reunion photo. I knew the guys were short but wow! I mean..errr, they’re on their knees you say? Well don’t I just feel stupid. The look on Ian McKellen’s face makes him look like he’s petting two adorable baby seals or something.

In reality, some very cool camera tricks were used in the film to make the guys look feet shorter than Gandalf when in fact they were only a couple inches shorter than him. And for scenes like when he hugs them, they used dwarves with curly haired wigs. Spellcheck is telling me “dwarves” isn’t a word. FINE, “little persons” with curly haired wigs. You happy spellcheck? Oh wait I’ve got a link for you. IT IS TOO A WORD.

Anyway, can’t wait to see the gang back together for The Hobbit Parts 1 and 2.
