In The Movie
Sir Ian McKellen
(AUDIO: Gandalf reads the One Ring)
"Gandalf is one of the five Istari that were sent to Middle-Earth. Both in The Hobbit and in the Lord of the Rings he plays an essential role. He was sent to protect and guide the people of Middle-Earth. He was given the Elvenring Narya by Cirdan the Shipwright. His most valuable contributions were made in the War against Sauron and without the guidance and actions of Gandalf, Middle-Earth would have been lost. He tamed the horse Shadowfax and took him as his own. He was seen by many as a "stormcrow" as he always came with bad news that troubled a lot of people. Gandalf the Grey was lost in the mines of Moria as he fought the Balrog and was dragged down in the fall at the bridge of Khazad-dum. He was resurrected as Gandalf the White and he destroyed the power of Saruman who had been the leader of the order. The defeat of Sauron was his big task and when it was completed he left middle-earth together with Bilbo, Frodo, Elrond and Galadriel."

'Yes, I , Gandalf the Grey,' said the wizard solemnly. 'There are many powers in the world, for good and for evil. Some are greater than I am. Against some I have not yet been measured. But my time is coming. The Morgul-lord and his Black Riders have come forth. War is preparing!'

"Shall we continue to our next character: Aragorn?"

Sure Bilbo, let's meet the next Hero...
Show me the character list again, I want to meet someone else...
I am getting tired, let's stop this tour...
