Emma WatsonHoly cannoli! Walt Disney Studios announced today that Harry Potter star Emma Watson will be playing Belle in their upcoming live-action Beauty and the Beast remake. That’s right, Harry Potter and one of the most beloved Disney movies of all time are colliding with each other, I’ll wait for you to stop swooning.

Official Disney Statement 

Emma Watson is Disney’s Belle in new Beauty and the Beast

 Actress Emma Watson has been cast as 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.

This is pretty exciting news for both audiences and the studio. Watson has a huge fanbase which will surely draw big crowds but for the fans she is pretty much the best actress that could have been cast. I’m glad, that like her former co-star Daniel Radcliffe, Watson is taking on different roles and mastering her craft.
