Ian McKellen's Journal/Blog for The Lord of the Rings

While filming The Lord of the Rings, I began recording my impressions in The Grey Book, one of the earliest blogs, launched before the term came into widespread use.

After that I began a new volume of entries called The White Book (see links below).

Originally posted like a blog, with the newest entries at top, in 2010 the entries were rearranged into chronological order from 25 June 2002 to 12 November 2003.

25 June 2002: The Two Towers and Gollum

16 September 2002: Marketing and Merchandise

25 June 2003: End in Sight

15 July 2003: Shooting Pickups

16 September 2003: Final Filming Days

12 November 2003: Adieu to Gandalf
