Gandalf names the wizards but can't remember their names. Who were they?

    If your next question will be "Why couldn't Gandalf remember the names of the blue wizards when they were clearly given in other writings?" - the answer is because the films did not have the rights to the written works that name the blue wizards. – NKCampbell Jun 2 '16 at 18:42

    @NKCampbell - Apparently Gandalf was afraid of getting sued. He'll face down Balrogs and Maia but he's terrified of Tolkien Jr's team of lawyers. – Valorum Mar 15 '17 at 18:06
