The talented, beautiful and British-American actress Emma Watson, has revealed she will be in the modern version of Beauty and the Beast.
Beauty and the Beast is based on the classic Disney animation fairytale. The film to come out in 2016 is a live-action adaptation of a cursed prince and beautiful young women Belle, who helps him, break the spell.
Waston is excited to play the role and told sources that Beauty and the Beast was such a big part of her childhood, so playing Belle was a big deal. However…did you know Waston can sing?! She told E-News that she is terrified to play the role of Belle because she has never done a “musical-type” movie before, and that it will be a challenge for her; but in a good way.
When Waston announced that she would play the role via social media, fans went crazy! As Waston has been used to doing action/fantasy films such as The Harry Potter franchise, and The Perks of Being a Wallflower, I think people are excited to see what she can bring to the table in this modern version of Beauty and the Beast. Like the say, except the unexpected!
Beauty and the Beast is in pre-production at this moment. The crew did officially announce that Waston will be co-staring with Dan Stevens as Beast, and Luke Evans as Gaston. The rest of the cast will be revealed at a later date.
