We’re so jealous of Emma Watson’s movie roles — first she’s a wizard and now a Disney princess! The actress makes for one incredibly beautiful Belle in this sneak peek of the highly-anticipated film, ‘Beauty And The Beast.’ Where on Earth can we buy that dress?!
Beauty and the Beast is a Disney classic, and classics are usually not to be tinkered with, but Emma Watson is putting a fresh spin on her character Belle that we can’t help but fawn over. As a proud feminist, Emma is morphing Belle into a book-loving, invention-creating woman (who doesn’t do silly laundry all day like in the original film). Even with all of these subtle changes, Emma knows better than to mess with Belle’s beautiful dress! That signature canary yellow ballgown is staying put, folks!
The dress was designed by Jacqueline Durran, who spills a little secret about Emma’s personal touch on the garmet that goes unseen to the eye. “In Emma’s reinterpretation, Belle is an active princess. She did not want a dress that was corseted or that would impede her in any way,” she said to Entertainment Weekly. We’ll take the Harry Potter alum’s decision as a sign that Beauty and the Beast will be totally action-packed and full of fun stuns! And in case you haven’t heard, Dan Stevens will play the kind but misunderstood Beast.
The reception towards the Disney remake has been incredibly positive, with fans already freaking out online over the film’s teaser. Even though we don’t see much from the super-short trailer, the powerful soundtrack is enough to give us chills. All we can hear is one of the Beast’s minions asking, “Look it’s a girl! What if she is the one?” The Beast responds in a deep, aggressive tone, but don’t we all know that he’s not really a monster? We CANNOT wait to see this in theaters!
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Emma as Belle? Will this movie be a huge hit?
