I’m pretty sure that Belle is Hermione Granger’s favorite Disney princess. I mean, no one loves to read more than those two girls and I’m pretty sure Ron’s wedding gift to Hermione was her very own library. Right?
The big news from Disney studios is that they’ve cast their Belle in an upcoming live-action Beauty and the Beast, and it’s the lovely and talented Emma Watson.
It seems Emma’s excited too, spilling the news on her Facebook page and saying “I’m finally able to tell you… that I will be playing Belle in Disney’s new live-action Beauty and the Beast! It was such a big part of my growing up, it almost feels surreal that I’ll get to dance to ‘Be Our Guest’ and sing ‘Something There’. My six year old self is on the ceiling – heart bursting. Time to start some singing lessons. I can’t wait for you to see it.”
As Belle is my favorite princess as well, I can’t wait to see it either. We’re all going to have to be patient, as the film is still in pre-production with no official release date.
We’ll just have to do our best.
