That is one of the Mearas! Unless my eyes are cheated by some spell? He is the Lord of all horses: Shadowfax, the world’s greatest hovercraft inspo. Gandalf’s equine BFF discussed for over an hour? Sure, why not - it’s the tenth and last episode of the first series of Not Another Elf!
Every week in this podcast, Paul Ridd and Catherine Bray look at a character’s place in Tolkien’s mythos, their place in pop culture, literature and adaptations. We look at Peter Jackson’s adaptations, Ralph Bakshi’s Lord of the Rings (1978), the 1979 Mind’s Eye radio adaptation, Return of the King (1980) from Rankin-Bass, the 1981 BBC Radio adaptation, and the 1990 Rob Inglis and 2020 Andy Serkis audiobooks.
The podcast will return for more in-depth Lord of the Rings character analysis in series 2. Subscribe so you don’t miss out.
