Sir Ian McKellen Completes Filming The Hobbit

While it’s not exactly news, it surely is a momentous occasion. Sir Ian McKellen just finished filming scenes as Gandalf for “The Hobbit” films as Peter Jackson just posted the following with this picture:

“Seconds ago we finished our last shot with Gandalf. The end of an incredible adventure that began in 1999. I’m feeling very sad right now.”

We’ll get to see McKellen as Gandalf two more times, this December in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and in December of 2014 in The Hobbit: There and Back Again.
