Emma Watson Starring in 'Beauty and the Beast'

Emma Watson seems to be moving on from Harry Potter just fine!

Indiewire has reported that the 21-year-old actress is set to star in an adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, with Oscar-winning director Guillermo Del Toro directing.

JJJ wonders who will play the beast opposite Emma in this new movie?

Emma can also been seen next in The Perks of Being a Wallflower along with Logan Lerman and Nina Dobrev. Nina told press that Emma “pushes the envelope” in the new flick.

WHO DO YOU THINK will play the beast opposite Emma in the new Beauty and the Beast?

Emma is sooooooo AWESOME!

Emma is so beautiful, she’s perfect(:

Brennabear @ 12:03 pm on 07/19/2011

Rupert should play the beast. I am just saying. He would be so perfect. I wouldn’t mind seeing them together in a movie again. I don’t even care if they are sick of each other.

It’s “Belle” not “Bella”

Adriana @ 12:23 pm on 07/19/2011

She’ll make a great Belle! She’s beautiful of course.

vivi @ 12:23 pm on 07/19/2011

belle. her names belle, not bella.

RN012 @ 12:29 pm on 07/19/2011

I can’t wait to see her as Beauty (I think Belle is just the name of the Disney version). I hope it’s really dark and gloomy and considering Guillermo del toro is producing, it probably will be.

As for Beast, maybe Michael Fassbender?

Belle @ 1:00 pm on 07/19/2011

IDK why everyone is saying Bella, in the Disney adaptation it’s Belle. In the actual novel she didn’t have either name. Her name in the book was “Beauty”

Gabby @ 1:09 pm on 07/19/2011

I can’t wait to see her play Beauty and it’s been confirmed that Guillermo is directing! Yay!

Ugh what is up with HollyWood these days? Like I must admit she is an incredible actress but I can’t picture her as Belle at all. She just doesn’t have the right looks. If HollyWood is going to start remaking all these classics atleast cast someone who can look the part.

ella @ 2:04 pm on 07/19/2011

I thought she had to look beautiful, not like Belle.

Gabby @ 2:35 pm on 07/19/2011


She’s not supposed to look like Belle. This has nothing to do with the Disney version.

It’s an adaptation based on the French story. Emma’s character will not be named Belle. And she does look the part. She’s beautiful and she’s got experience playing determined, intelligent, and brave characters. It’s right up her alley.

samy @ 3:16 pm on 07/19/2011

YES! please Emma is perrrrrrrfectt! <3

Nina @ 4:01 pm on 07/19/2011

Emma it’s the perfect Belle, and Zac Efron as the beast!!!

If this is true, I’m so happy for her! I think she could be good in this. Also, you can’t go wrong with Guillermo del Toro.

whatever @ 6:24 pm on 07/19/2011

She is really a very average actress…….Have no idea why people think she’s so great. Looks wise too. Nothing special. She just happened to be in a stupid movie series…..how does that make her such a great actress???

Sarah @ 7:35 pm on 07/19/2011


you’re kidding right?

Sarah @ 8:16 pm on 07/19/2011


lol sounds like somebody’s jealous. Harry Potter isn’t some stupid movie series, have you even seen them? Have you even read the books? or are you illiterate?

The last two Harry Potter movies are especially brilliant and no one else could have played the role of Hermione as well as Emma did. And I assure you, if you saw Emma Watson walking down the street, you would not just brush her off as “average”.

Chelsea @ 12:41 am on 07/20/2011

@Sarah: I was thinking the same thing. You wrote what I had to say so perfectly. Anyway, this is beyond exciting! I love Emma Watson!

Joyce @ 10:10 am on 07/20/2011

Tom Felton should be the beast! :D (opinion only)
