Bonjour! Bonjour! We woke up to the most wonderful news ever announced by Belle herself. What can't Emma Watson do? She's gorgeous, intelligent, charming, and now she's a Disney Princess! Emma Watson is joining the live-action production of Beauty and the Beast. The movie will be directed by The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Parts 1 and 2 director Bill Condon. Filming will begin in 2015, but no release date has been announced yet.



We're just as excited! This isn't the first time we're hearing news about Emma playing a Disney Princess. Remember when she was on top of our list of possible actresses to play Ariel in a rumored live-action production of The Little Mermaid?

Now who will play the Beast? What about Gaston, Lumiere, Cogsworth? Got a dream casting you're hoping for? Leave us a comment below after you watch the trailer of the 1991 Beauty and the Beast animated film. Ahh! Our hearts are filled with glee.
