While The Lord of the Rings films depict many details of Tolkien's books, they never showed Gandalf's true power to the viewers.
In just eleven hours of filming, these three have beautifully illustrated the legends of Tolkien's books, and we have also seen the character development of most of the characters. But at the same time, these films do not include parts of Tolkien's story that helped describe Gandalf's identity and power.>
But The Lord of the Rings films never identified his main source of power. As a wizard in Middle-earth, his story is far more complex than a man born with special and magical powers, or someone who, like the characters in Star Wars, has a special connection to a force. In fact, Gandalf can be considered an angel. He is a Maya, a kind of god sent to Middle-earth by his creative spirits, which makes Gandalf one of the most powerful Lord of the Rings characters, even if it is not clear.
It is true that Gandalf's true power was not shown in the movies, but the interesting thing is that the same is true in the books. Was. Tolkien is best known for his trilogy The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. In this book, published by Tolkien's son, Christopher after his death, he delves into the details and stories of the creatures that created Middle-earth, including Mayan races such as Gandalf. Naturally, Silmarillion's complex story was not the main subject of The Lord of the Rings, as the film was intended to tell a story in which Gandalf is one of the main characters, not the protagonist.
The powers that Gandalf uses in these films are like rays. From light, waves of force, magically commanding with his voice and creating fireworks for the Hobbits, they surely prove that he is a powerful creature. However, because of his originality and the fact that he comes from the gods, his level of power goes far beyond what we see. From his help to Valar (creatures like the great angels), we learn that the Mayar race not only have the power to manipulate matter and force, but can even create them. It is also possible that Gandalf was much wiser than what we saw in The Lord of the Rings, and that his immortality meant that he had a great deal of experience. Thus, even considering how remarkable his return from death in "Two Towers" was, even his new title, White Gandalf, does not show the slightest bit of his identity and abilities.
Depicting such literature Complications are always difficult, but Peter Jackson's "Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit" trilogy show the right way to do it. However, there will always be details in the process of turning such long and complex books into films. For this reason, although "Lord of the Rings" has made Gandalf a popular character, none of these films have shown his true power.
