Disney finally dropped the highly anticipated trailer for their live-action adaption of their classic animated movie Beauty and the Beast. The teaser has been getting lots of attention on the Internet as it gives viewers a (very short) glimpse at Emma Watson, who is known for her role as Hermione in the Harry Potter series, taking on the role of Belle. While people are already talking about the upcoming movie, audiences are still in for quite the wait. The movie is set to hit theatres on March 17 of next year.
Based on Emma’s continuous involvement in fighting for women’s rights and gender equality, it will be interesting to see if some of her personal beliefs play a role in the revamping of the princess classic.
