Dan Stevens Was SO Excited to Film This 'Beauty and the Beast' Scene

Dan Stevens Was SO Excited to Film This 'Beauty and the Beast' Scene

Actor Dan Stevens did an amazing job making the Beast come to life on-screen in the new Beauty and the Beast film!

While we knew Emma Watson would connect with her bookish character (she has spoken out about the meaning of Belle’s love for books in interviews) it turns out Dan understood the Beast’s literary proclivities as well.

During a Twitter Q&A Monday morning, Dan revealed to Entertainment Weekly that the library was his favorite scene to recreate.

“My favorite set to recreate was the library — I was excited to get to step into the real Beast’s library,” he said.

We can’t blame him — gifting Belle with a library remains one of the most romantic gestures in Disney movies to date.

This 'Beauty and the Beast' Scene Gave the Entire Cast Goosebumps

This 'Beauty and the Beast' Scene Gave the Entire Cast Goosebumps

All movies have read-throughs with the cast members before anything is ever filmed, but for Beauty and the Beast, it was so much more complex than that — and Emma Watson delivered one incredible read-through.

“I don’t even know if you could call it a read-through,” Emma told E! News, “It was all singing, all dancing.”

“Often you do a table read of a script, but this is something much more elaborate,” director Bill Condon agreed. “It was something planned and staged for days.”

There’s one scene in particular during the “read-through” that surprised everyone. Emma stood up and began waltzing during the “Beauty and the Beast” song, giving everyone all of the feels.

Then, Josh Gad (Lefou) said, Emma Thompson (Mrs. Potts) went up to the microphone “completely unprompted” to sing “Beauty and the Beast.”

“You could see the goose bumps,” he remembered.

We’re getting goosebumps just thinking about it!

All of the Songs in Emma Watson's 'Beauty and the Beast' -- Ranked

All of the Songs in Emma Watson's 'Beauty and the Beast' -- Ranked

Emma Watson‘s Beauty and the Beast was heart-wrenching and gorgeous and delivered every bit the Disney classic that it is.

As with many Disney movies, the music in this live-action adaptation is as central a character as any of the leads. And the introduction of three new songs — “Days in the Sun,” “How Does a Moment Last Forever,” and “Evermore” — made the payoff that much more rewarding.

It certainly didn’t hurt that Emma and her co-star Dan Stevens gave goosebump-inducing performances.

8 Ways Emma Watson's Belle is Even Better Than the Original

8 Ways Emma Watson's Belle is Even Better Than the Original

Beauty and the Beast is one of Disney’s best animated classics, and we won’t even tell you how many times we saw Emma Watson‘s live-action version this weekend.

We weren’t disappointed. Not only does the new film live up to the animated version’s magical, beautiful nature, but it far surpasses it, most notably in the character of Belle.

Belle has always been unusual for an old-school Disney princess: She loves to read, she’s brave, and she’s fiercely independent. Still, Emma‘s version is even better: she plays the character as stronger, quirkier, and with even more resolve.

Here are 8 ways Emma‘s Belle is superior to the original. Naturally, we save the best for last!

'Beauty & The Beast' Stars Debate Who The Best Disney Prince Actually Is

'Beauty & The Beast' Stars Debate Who The Best Disney Prince Actually Is

While the Disney Princesses get praised, the Disney Princes are mostly looked over…but not today!

Beauty and the Beast stars Josh Gad and Luke Evans, who star as Le Fou and Gaston in the live action film, sat down with People and debated just who really was the best Disney Prince.

While they don’t really like Prince Florian (Snow White), but do love Prince Eric (Ariel), it’s Prince Philip that leaves an impression.

The one I feel really badly for is the Sleeping Beauty prince [Prince Phillip], because he’s got to fight a dragon — a thorny forest,” Josh explains, before busting out into the “Once Upon A Dream” song that’s featured in Sleeping Beauty.

JJJ Fun Fact
: Prince Philip was named after Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh — Queen Elizabeth II’s husband!
