Movie Gandalf's tall, pointe, BLUE hat. The proof irrefutable . The actual hat was indeed Can't Post

blue in the LOTR movies. In some scenes, due to lighting and surrounding colours, it sometimes looked blue-grey or even grey. Now, I know someone will find a photo of gray hats from the current Hobbit shoot. I believe that the actual hat for Hobbit may indeed be grey, and I think in large part that is because of the type camera they are using for the films. I remember them saying they had to change the colours of certain items, because the camera caused them to look an entirely different colour on film. The WORST possible scenario, to my mind, would be if merchandisers who did a piss poor job on details and made the hat grey when it was supposed to be blue for their toys, pressured the film team into greying the blue hat up. That would be disgusting indeed, and I hope it isn't so. If they kept it the proper Blue hue for the Fellowship movie, there is no reason to make it gray in The Hobbit, as The Hobbit is the more colourful tale, in which he is generally referred to as Gandalf The Wizard, and is seldom if at all mentioned as Gandalf The Gray.

"Hear me, hounds of Sauron, Gandalf is here! Fly if you value your foul skins, I will shrivel you from tail to snout if you step within this circle!"

"Do not be to eager to deal out death in judgement. Even the very wise cannot see all ends."
