SCOD: "I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide"

SCOD: "I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide" Can't Post

So, this week's first SCOD focuses on Gandalf the White. (rather appropriate given his entrance in the last SCOD). I thought that I would focus on Gandalf's physical characteristics for this SCOD, and ask you about your own opinion concerning the presentation of the White Wizard. I'm new to posting SCODs, so apologies if this is not how it is normally done (in terms of posting the image), I am yet mastering the art (the image is attached to the post).

Here are some questions then:
1. Compare Gandalf the Grey to Gandalf the White. What difference is there in the latter's more ethereal presentation and character? Do you approve of the choices that PJ & Co made in order to distinguish this new Gandalf?

2. In the books, Gandalf the White rarely unveils his true colour, hiding it behind the grey mantle which he wore in his previous alias. Although he uses this briefly in The Two Towers he permanently abandons the grey cloak after a while. Do you agree/disagree with that choice?

3. Do you think that Gandalf appears to be younger, older or a mixture of both of these things? Does the shorter beard and facelift make him seem younger? Does the white beard make him seem older (and possibly more experienced)?

4. Any other thoughts/comments?

EDIT: The attachment doesn't seem to be clearly displayed. If not please follow this link. Sorry for any inconviences caused.


"Radagast is, of course, a worthy wizard, a master of shapes and changes of hue, and he has much lore of herbs and beasts, and birds are especially his friends."-Gandalf, The Lord of the Rings.
