His name is Dan Stevens and there may be something there that wasn't there before.

Remember that time when we all freaked out when Emma Watson announced she was going to play Belle in the live-action movie of Beauty and the Beast? Well, we think this is going to be another OMG moment because Emma just made a major BatB announcement on Twitter!



Sooo he wasn't part of our dream casting, but we're not mad at all. In fact, we're super excited to see how all of this will come together on the big screen! ICYDK who Dan Stevens is, his face might look famil if you saw Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb—he played Sir Lancelot! But to Downton Abbey fans, you know and love him as Matthew Crawley until 2012 when he left the show (we won't say how because we know you hate spoilers) to pursue his movie career. Well, look at you, Matthew. Major heart eyes!


We simply can't wait to see how BatB unfolds and we'll be counting on Belle herself to spill all the details as we go along. 

What do you think of the casting so far? Leave a comment below or tweet us @candymagdotcom so we can gush about Beauty and the Beast together!
