Emma Watson announces new role

Which of the Disney Princess do you think would best fit the woman who got her start playing Hermione Granger?

If you answered Belle from Disney's Beauty and the Beast, you are not alone. She announced via her social media pages this morning that she was just cast in Disney's live action movie.


The movie will be directed by Bill Condon (Twilight: Breaking Dawn) and the script will be written by Stephen Chbosky, who already directed Watson in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, a film adaptation of his own book.

Emma had previously been courted by Guillermo del Toro to star in his Beauty which he was developing for WB, but the project was scrapped and the director gave his blessing to Disney to cast her in their film, according to TheWrap.

Edit: Fan Art is already coming in.
