He was definitely one of the most memorable characters in the first film. I imagine if will be very magical to see him on the big screen.

How simply wonderful that he will be reprising his role. It is most difficult to get used to seen another actor in a lead role when it has been so successfully done by the original. Still have not forgiven Richard Harris for dying and not continuing on as Dumbledore! Sorry but still have not gotten used to Mr. Gambon.

He is perfect for the role so I’m glad he came back to do it… would be odd with a different actor in his place anyways.

For those who watch Merlin (and it’s getting better), John Hurt is the voice of the dragon.
