The Secularization of Lewis
Tilda Swinton, who plays the witch in the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, was asked about the book's religious metaphor. "What religious metaphor?" she replied, "a lot of people know that C.S. Lewis was a very well-known Christian apologist, and for them the religious allegory will be important but there are many millions of other people for whom it is not."
"I think that when people see the movie, they will see what the filmmakers have done here is to make a genuinely faithful adaption of a C.S. Lewis children's story --- but, you know the Christians are welcome," she continued.
"Oh, gee thanks," replied Lewis as he rolled over in his grave.
