Emma Watson Is 'Terrified' to Star in 'Beauty & The Beast'

Emma Watson is opening up about landing the lead role in the upcoming live-action adaptation of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.

“I sing, so that’s really unexpected,” the 24-year-old actress told Total Film. “I’ve never had to do that for a film before, and I think people will be interested to see me do something very different like that.”

“It gives me a different challenge, really. That’s terrifying in and of itself!” Emma added.

We sure can’t wait to see her belting out some of those classic songs!

    Sorry but I really doubt that Emma will be a good Belle. Not only is she lacking acting talent, but she also doesn’t look like most people would imagine Belle. I’m not hating, I actually like Emma, she’s the girl next door and she seems smart, but it’s just not a good choice at all.

    i think she’ll do great… it’s just she’s not Belle………. SHE’s HERMIONE!

    ITA , also they will dub her songs of the singing isn’t up to par. I think she had to do something big after Harry Potter movies she’s not known for any other parts is she.

    It would probably be less terrifying for Emma if she did not have to carry the movie. At least she has Luke Evans to help balance the load, because I don’t think Dan Stevens can really help in that department. Total honesty.

    People are really criticizing her and the movie before she’s even filmed it and before anyone has seen any clips or the actual movie. I like Emma, and I think she’ll do fine with the role, but I guess we’ll have to see.
