Growing up every little girl wants to be a princess! Disney continuing with the Live-Action interpretations of fairy tales has cast Emma Watson to play Belle in Disney’s upcoming live-action interpretation of Beauty and the Beast. The film is directed by Bill Condon and produced by Mandeville Films’ David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman. Production is anticipated to begin later this year.
Emma Watson has confirmed earlier today that she will be playing Belle in Disney’s upcomming live-action interpretation of Beauty and the Beast. Emma wrote on facebook…
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. Emma xx
One of my favorite actresses, I LOVED watching her talent grow in the Harry Potter series, and continue to grow in movies like My Week With Marilyn, & The Perks of Being A Wallflower. I’m excited to see what both Disney & Emma bring to this classic fairy tale!
