Emma Watson in ‘Beauty and the Beast’

WATCH: Teaser Trailer for Live-Action ‘Beauty and the Beast’

We’ve been excited to see the new live-action version of Beauty and The Beast ever since it was announced (not to mention more than a little curious when we discovered the not-at-all-beastly Dan Stevens had been cast as the Beast).

Emma Watson, the ‘Belle’ of the Ball

This came up yesterday but someone said something about David Tennant and we got distracted so… Emma Watson is on her way back to a world of magical creatures and grotesque monsters, although it’s not the Potterverse, it’s Disney’s new live-action version of Beauty and the Beast, in which Emma plays the Beast.
