PJ portrayed Gandalf as a wise and powerful being but also vulnerable in some strange way in LOTR and it really worked for me. His magic, like the light from his staff at Helm's Deep and blocking the attack from the Balrog were impressive but believable and when combined with his moral temperament, dignity and the occasional assistance of providence he truly came across as a maiar.

I don't like the descriptions in the annual - they seem juvenile - but well have to wait and see how it's executed I guess.

Sometimes less is more.
