From News.Scotsman.com: Tilda Swinton took a fiercely political swipe at a “goose-stepping” Walt Disney, just months after she played a leading role in a highly successful Disney adaptation, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. … Speaking about The Chronicles of Narnia, which in the run-up to its release was given a huge push by the Church, Swinton said: “I love the idea of goose-stepping old Walt D making over $700m with the help of a Red Witch. He is more than welcome. … At least we made her whiter than white, the ultimate white supremacist, and we managed to railroad the knee-jerk attempt to make her look like an Arab.” Read the full story here.
