You may have heard today that Emma Watson has confirmed that she will play Belle in Disney's live-action musical adaptation of their classic Beauty and the Beast. If you're like me, you met this news with crazed enthusiasm. Belle is one of the best characters from the early 1990's Disney animation renaissance, and I distinctly remember my experience of going to the theater with my dad to see the 1991 animated film.
It also doesn't hurt that Watson played Harry Potter's Hermione Granger for over 10 years. Disney + beloved Harry Potter actress = one happy Joey. Here are some perfectly acceptable (and HP appreciated) reactions to the news that Watson will be belting out some classic Disney.
So, how excited are you?
