The tale as old as time that is Beauty and the Beast is one of the most beloved fairy tales ever made. It is a story of true love and acceptance despite looks or social status.

The remake of the classic pays respect to the essence of its predecessor. Belle, played by Emma Watson could not have been more perfect for the role. Paige O’ Hara, the original Belle even said that “I think that if I were producing that movie, Emma Watson would’ve been my first choice for Belle. I was just really happy they went with Emma. She’s got the intelligence, she’s got the humor. I think she’s going to be really, really special.”
The original cast members seem to be in agreement. Sheer perfection is how we would describe Watson on the recently released photos from Entertainment Weekly. The actress is radiantly glowing in her golden ball gown, its simplicity utterly captivating.
Not only is she perfect for the role, visually, she is also one dedicated Belle. Like most young girls, Watson grew up loving the fairy tale. “I can’t even think how many times I watched it as a child, I knew all the words by heart. I knew all the songs by heart,” shares the modern-day Beauty.
But other than Belle, everything else looks perfect in the Beauty and the Beast 2017 live-action. The settings, characters and story are all impeccably weaved together forming a dreamy whole.
