Cate Blanchett Reprising her Role as Galadriel

Chalk this up to the not surprising developments department:

Cate Blanchett has joined the cast of Peter Jackson‘s The Hobbit, where she will again play the role of Galadriel, the Lady of Lothlorien, who also appeared in The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

“Cate is one of my favorite actors to work with,” Jackson said, “and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have her reprise the role she so beautifully brought to life in the earlier film.”

Not sure if they’ve announced Ian McKellen returning as Gandalf, but he’s been growing his beard out something fierce, so logically we can assume he’ll be back.
