Jadis the White Witch is the main antagonist of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. She was played by British actress Tilda Swinton. 

Swinton's performance won particular acclaim among fans and critics. The White Witch is the primary antagonist in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. She kidnaps Edmund Pevensie and Mr. Tumnus. She eventually turns Tumnus to stone. She is defeated when Aslan mauls her to death. BBC film critic Stella Papamichael wrote: The witch's name is Jadis: "As the cold hearted White Witch, Tilda Swinton sets the tempo for this bracing adventure. She is a pristine picture of evil, like the specter of Nazism that forces the children out of London to the sanctuary of a country manor."

Resurrection attempt Edit

In the 2008 sequel The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, in a scene exclusive to the film, a hag, a werewolf, and the dwarf Nikabrik planned to resurrect The White Witch by using her wand to create the mystical wall of ice. The White Witch says that she needs a drop of "Adam's blood" to live again, which she tries to coax from Caspian and then from Peter with promises of lending her great powers to their cause against King Miraz once she is made whole. However, Edmund shatters the ice before the Witch can obtain the drop of blood, and she is sent back into oblivion.

Trivia Edit
