We can’t get over how perfect Emma Watson looks as Belle in the first trailer for ‘Beauty and the Beast,’ and the Internet agrees! Check out the fan reaction to the quick sneak peek right here.
Emma Watson, 26, may only appear in the Beauty and the Beast trailer for a few quick seconds, but that’s all her fans needed to be held over for now. Twitter is totally buzzing with reaction to the teaser that debuted on May 23, and everyone seems to agree on at least one thing: Emma was the absolute perfect choice for the live action film’s lead role!
We don’t get to see much in the trailer: We get a great view of the Beast’s massive castle, and as the camera pans around mansion, we can hear two residents discussing a mysterious visitor. “Look, it’s a girl!” one says, to which the other responds, “What if she’s the one?!”
The voices sound exactly like ones we’ve come to know and love from the animated version, and then another familiar view comes into sight: The single rose inside a glass case. Finally, we get a chance to see our girl Belle, as Emma’s character peers through the glass.
So no, we don’t get to see her wearing any of Belle’s iconic ensembles, but just from her gaze alone, we can tell she’s just the perfect person to play this part! The trailer debuted on Good Morning America on May 23, and immediately, fans started blowing up Twitter, gushing over the first look sneak peek. Imagine what will happen when we get to see some actual footage?!
Unfortunately, the first trailer doesn’t give us a glimpse at Dan Stevens portraying the Beast, so it looks like we’ll have to wait patiently for some new footage to check that out. The movie doesn’t come out until March 17, 2017, so with ten months to go, we’ll likely see a LOT more where this came from.
