McKellen delivers Lord of the Rings inspired message to delighted schoolchildren

Film icon Ian McKellen was visiting schoolchildren at Chew Valley School in England yesterday and decided to use his wizardry to spellbind young minds on the subject of education.

McKellen, who plays Gandalf in the Lord of the Rings film series, didn’t need to use a long winded speech to some up the importance of young people getting a full education.

All he needed was four simple words.

We think he got his message across and the kids seemed to love it.

What a legend he is, but you knew that already.

YOU SHALL NOT PASS!
