It has been confirmed that Emma Watson has been cast as Belle in the upcoming live action remake of Beauty and the Beast and can I just say YAAASS. Ever since Watson’s first role as our beloved Hermione Granger I have been itching for her to get into a role where she can take on that book smart heroine we know and love. The thought of Watson in that blue dress singing on the hills of France with a book in her hand has me squealing with joy. I see an alternate version of the Hermione character, growing up in a rural town in France, and finding love in this hairy beast from the woods. Also it’s said the movie will be a musical (of course) and I believe our Emma will have a beautiful and enchanting voice that will bring the academy to its knees or something along those lines. I for one will be waiting eagerly for this film, set for a 2016 release, and I will be waiting not so patiently for the trailer to surface in the next year or so and finally see Watson in a role she was born to play. Watson is the only confirmed actress of the film so far, so the question remains: Who will be her Beast?
