You may have heard rumors of a live-action Beauty and the Beast in the past, but this time it's official, and Emma Watson is our Beauty!  Emma shared on Facebook:

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

What do you think of this news?  Hopefully the notable feminist can pull off something better than what's happened with Cinderella.
