Hermione who?

Emma Watson, who originated one of the most iconic roles in literary cinema, played Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter franchise. Now, she is stepping into another iconic role, Belle from Beauty and the Beast. 

Disney has been in the habit of taking their beloved animated classics and giving them a live action remake. So far, besides Pete's Dragon, I have been a fan.

Just this morning, Disney released a full 2 minute trailer for Beauty and the Beast. It looks amazing.

Newcomer, Dan Stevens, plays Prince Adam/The Beast opposite Emma Watson as Belle.

I had reservations about this remake because obviously the role of the beast is hard to make look real. Then there are all the talking characters in the castle like Lumiere, Mrs. Potts, Cogsworth etc. But so far so good. Looks good to me.

The cast is full of great people though. For example, Ewan McGregor, Emma Thompson, Stanley Tucci, Audra McDonald, Josh Gad, Kevin Kline, and Ian McKellan, just to name a few.

Beauty and the Beast will be in theaters March 17, 2017.
