Not much has been revealed about the adaption of the Disney classic “Beauty and the Beast,” but now we have a low-down on what fans can expect when the movie hits theaters, and it sure sounds quite exciting.
Emma Watson followers will be delighted to know that the actress has sung not one but three songs in the movie. She revealed in an interview with Movie’n’Co UK that lyricist Allan Menken had penned down three fresh songs for the upcoming “Beauty and the Beast.”
Watson told Movie’n’Co UK that she had fun singing and also had to take horse-riding and dancing lessons for her role as the beautiful Belle. Giving movie buffs a sneak-peek into the plot, she said that the story differs in terms of depth since it will reveal more of what was left unsaid in the animated version of the movie.
Commenting on Emma Watson, Luke Evans who plays Gaston in the movie, shared with MTV, “She epitomizes what Belle should be in the 21st century to young girls; she’s a strong woman. We all know Emma as Emma, a strong woman, she has a voice, she uses it very effectively and I admire her for that. She’s brought some of that to Belle. She’s not just a Disney princess, she’s more than a Disney princess, and she has a beautiful sensitive side to her. She’s quite delicate to look at, but she’s not at all. She’s a really strong, feisty woman and we have some fantastic scenes in the film.”
He referred to her as a “triple threat” since she also has a “great singing voice.”
With praises like these, we are quite sure fans are at the edge of their seats and can’t wait to hear Watson sing and take on her role as Belle.
The live action adaption “Beauty and the Beast”, starring Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as the Beast, will be released on March 17, 2017.
