I really hope they don’t have Galadriel bring Gandalf back to life. It will completely take away all the power of his return in The Two Towers.

Just what the heck is going on here? This is the first thing in the Hobbit movies that’s really bugged me. If what’s happening here is actually what I think it is… (I.e. Galadriel raising Gandalf from the dead.)

excerpts-from-tolkien:

'Are you angry with me, Gandalf?' he said, as their guide went out and closed the door. 'I did the best I could.'
'You did indeed!' said Gandalf, laughing suddenly; and he came and stood beside Pippin, putting his arm about the hobbit's shoulders and gazing out of the window. Pippin glanced in some wonder at the face now close beside his own, for the sound of that laugh had been gay and merry. Yet in the wizard's face he saw at first only lines of care and sorrow; though as he looked more intently he perceived that under all there was a great joy: a fountain of mirth enough to set a kingdom laughing, were it to gush forth.

"Deserves it! I daresay he does. Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends."
