Emma Watson Cast as Belle in Beauty & The Beast

Okay so I know it is Monday, but this week I didn’t do a Disney post on Sunday and when I saw the news about Emma Watson being cast as Belle I thought: “Hey that’s a perfect Disney post” so here it is, my thoughts on the latest Disney casting news.

I’d like to start by expressing my excitement that they are finally doing a live action beauty & the beast, it is my FAVOURITE Disney princess movie and my opinions of live version Disney films of the past differ, largely based on the actress chosen for the princess. I loved Mirror Mirror, I loved Meleficent, I HATED snow white and the huntsman, I really wish I could have liked it but (Personal Opinion Here) Kristen Stewart was a horrible choice as snow white. I am optimistic about Cinderella. As far as the Beauty & The Beast I think I am going to be the hardest on it since I loved the Disney version SO much. I do think however that they did a great choice casting, I am a bit concerned about who they will chose for Prince Adam/Beast and the director choice worries me a bit as well, but I’ve noticed a lot that as long as there is a good actress in the lead the movie turns out alright. So here are my top 5  reasons for thinking Emma Watson will be an awesome Belle.

5. She has the look

4. She can dance, which is VERY important for the “Tale as old as time” scene

3.She is a strong female role model, as is Belle.

2. If you overlook some differences we have a brunette, smart, book loving heroine, she’s done that before and did a really good job at in.


1. She is a fan. Who better to play the iconic disney princess than someone who grew up with the first film and loves Belle.
