It appears that Tilda Swinton, the actress who magnificently played the White Witch in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe and Prince Caspian, will reprise her role in another short cameo for the third movie in this epic saga, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. While the production has not yet made any announcements, our spies tell us that an agreement has been reached between representatives of Swinton and the production.

Swinton has said that she was hoping to don her ice crown and flowing white dresses before the end of the series. It appears she will get her wish.

We hear that Swinton’s cameo will take place on the Island of Deathwater when Lord Restimar is about to jump into the deadly waters (which, as readers of the series well know, will turn anything to gold). Before he leaps, he notices some gold flecking along the edge of the water. As he leans down to examine it, he is pushed into the water by none other than Tilda’s character, the White Witch.

Just how Swinton is able to appear on the Island of Deathwater after being killed by Aslan in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is not clear at this point. We’ll have more on this late-breaking news as soon as possible.
