Emma Watson , the famous actress known for her work in “Harry Potter” as Hermione Granger, is now taking on the role of Belle in Disney’s new live action movie “Beauty And the Beast.”
Emma Watson took to twitter to show her excitement for her new role ,
” 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”
The movie will be Directed by Bill Condon best known for “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 and Part 2”. Filming will start later this year, and with no release date yet announced.
“Beauty and the Beast” is the newest Disney animated feature film to get a Live Action movie treatment. We already have “Alice In Wonderland” and the Sleeping Beauty movie “Maleficent”. We also have Cinderella and The Jungle Book movies on their way for a March 2015 and April 2016 release, respectively. That makes it a total of three new Live Action movies based on classic animated feature films from Disney including “Beauty and the Beast”.
It’s going to be really nice to see one of Disney’s most iconic movies “Beauty and the Beast ” come to life on the big screen. Bill Condon has a big movie in his hands and it’ll be interesting to see how it all turns out. To keep up to date on “Beauty in the Beast” and all other movie news, keep it locked to FGE.
