Emma Watson is set to bring Beauty and the Beast to life by playing Belle in the upcoming live-action version of the Disney classic.

The actress revealed the news in a Facebook post:

"I'm finally able to tell you... that I will be playing Belle in Disney's new live-action Beauty and the Beast! 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 six year old self is on the ceiling - heart bursting. Time to start some singing lessons. I can't wait for you to see it. Emma xx"

What do you think about the casting choice? She kinda does look like Belle!
