Emma Watson is to play Belle in the Disney live-action remake of the animated film from 1991. Filming will begin later this year. Do you think she will make a good Belle? Are you excited about seeing the film? In a Facebook message she said, '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.' We've never seen her sing on film before, what do you think she will be like?
I think Emma will be great in the role. She has a stunning likeness to Belle, and I think the part seems to fit her personality before. Since she said it's time to start taking singing lessons, I can only guess that she isn't a natural singer, but with practice will probably do really well. I'm definitely excited about the film, especially with Emma being in it.
This trend for live action remakes of cartoons is kind of weird. Hopefully now they are real people involved they will at least depict realistic body proportions, unlike the cartoons. Emma Watcon sems a decent choice though she doesn't have big stary Disney Princess eyes.
