Another image each of The Hobbit‘s Bilbo Baggins and Gandalf the Grey adorn the cover on the new Empire magazine. Note also the proud declaration that Empire were the “first magazine on set.”
First? Looks like some internet diseases are mutating and spreading to the print world too.
The first images were slightly less cluttered up.
Now, if you read the text on the cover, you’ll see a promise that the magazine has spoken to Peter Jackson, and that one of the things they’ve discussed is “Young Gandalf”. How young is young, exactly? Are they simply referring to the fact that this time around, we’ll be meeting the character some sixty years before The Fellowship of the Ring? Wouldn’t that just be “Younger Gandalf”?
