In a recent poll carried out by advertising company Pearl and Dean, Gandalf was voted in as the top wizard beating Dumbledore into second place. You can read the full story here.
No duh, Gandalf would beat out any other wizard.
Yay! Go Gandalf!
I don’t like this article because besides being a huge fan of the Lord of the Rings I am also a staunch Harry Potter fan and I love both HP and LOTR equally. I could never compare characters and love both Dumbledore and Gandalf.
Has anyone besides me heard about The Hobbit coming out in theaters in 2009 directed by Sam Raimi? I WISH SO MUCH THAT PJ WOULD DIRECT IT!!!!!!!!!!!
Yay … I actually think Gandalf is the best wizard ever… and its really no surprise that he beat Dumbledore… though i think it really an achievement for it to happen now… what with all the extra HP hype and the fact that LOTR hasn’t had a movie come out since 2003 😉 (it was 2003 wasn’t it?)
Does this really surprise anyone? I mean, honestly– everyone knows that Tolkien was one of the great Definers of the fantasy genre. And 9 times out of 10, the original is better than the modern version of a character. If Dumbledore pulls a Gandalf, I’m going to be quite annoyed.
It’s nice to see that, even though the whole world appears to have Harry Potter fever, Gandalf is still remembered/respected. It *shouldn’t* be a surprise, but when there are books speculating on the Harry Potter books, it’s not a sure thing.
Go Gandalf! Forth the White Rider! 😀
i love Gandalf… and i love Dumbledore =)
