Emma Watson may have grown up on-screen as Hermione in Harry Potter, but the Brown University graduate is set to take on Disney’s live-action version of Beauty and the Beast as Belle.

Watson gushed over her new role which starts filming this year. “I’m finally able to tell you… that I will be playing Belle in Disney’s new live-action Beauty and the Beast!” Watson wrote on Facebook. “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.”

I love that movie and played it over and over again when it first came out. Hopefully a new generation of kids will love the movie.
