It's official! Emma Watson has been cast as Belle in Disney's upcoming live-action movie Beauty and the Beast.
The former Harry Potter star broke the news by making a status on her Facebook page. "I'm finally able to tell you... that I will be playing Belle in Disney's new live-action Beauty and the Beast!" Emma wrote. "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 6-year-old self is on the ceiling -- heart bursting."
That's not all Emma revealed in her latest FB post. Apparently, she has to endure voice training to play the part of Belle!
"Time to start some singing lessons," she wrote. "I can't wait for you to see it."
We have to admit, we're super proud of Emma for making her dreams come true. (Especially because she's been super Disney obsessed since she was a child!) You go, girl!
