Emma Watson Sings 'Belle' with the Townspeople in 'Beauty & The Beast' First Look Clip!

The first look at Emma Watson singing her character’s first song, “Belle,” from the upcoming movie Beauty and the Beast has been released!

The clip opens with the townspeople singing the famous, “Bonjour! Bonjour! Bonjour, bonjour, bonjour!”

Emma then goes into Belle’s line, “There goes the baker with his tray like always, the same old bread and rolls to sell. Ev’ry morning just the same, since the morning that we came, to this poor provincial town.”

Belle then shares a moment with the baker and you might notice that some of the dialogue between the two characters has been changed from the animated film. In the original film she says the book she just finished is about “a beanstalk and an ogre,” but in the live-action remake she says, “it’s about two lovers in fair Verona,” in reference to Romeo and Juliet.

Make sure to watch the clip of Emma singing “Belle (Reprise)” as well!

Emma Watson Addresses Beauty & the Beast's Stockholm Syndrome Accusations

Emma Watson is opening up about concerns that her upcoming Beauty and the Beast movie features the psychological phenomenon of Stockholm syndrome (aka feelings of trust or affection felt in certain cases of kidnapping or hostage-taking by a victim toward a captor).

The 26-year-old actress disagrees with any accusations of the sort, as she thought carefully about playing Belle before taking on the role, making sure she didn’t portray her as a victim.

“It’s something I really grappled with at the beginning: the Stockholm-syndrome question,” she told Entertainment Weekly in its February 24th/March 3rd 2017 issue. “That’s where a prisoner will take on the characteristics of and fall in love with the captor. Belle actively argues and disagrees with [Beast] constantly.”

“She has none of the characteristics of someone with Stockholm syndrome because she keeps her independence; she keeps that freedom of thought,” Emma went on. “I also think there is a very intentional switch where, in my mind, Belle decides to stay. She’s giving him hell. There is no sense of ‘I need to kill this guy with kindness.’ Or any sense that she deserves this. In fact, she gives as good as she gets. He bangs on the door, she bangs back. There’s this defiance that ‘You think I’m going to come and eat dinner with you and I’m your prisoner – absolutely not.’”

Emma Watson Reveals Belle's Superpower in 'Beauty & the Beast'

Emma Watson is opening up about how she wanted to make sure she gave her Beauty and the Beast character, Belle, some serious consideration before agreeing to take on the role.

The 26-year-old actress shared her thoughts in an interview with Entertainment Weekly for its February 24th/March 3rd 2017 issue – aka the Beauty and the Beast preview issue.

Here’s what Emma had to share with the mag:

On Belle’s superpower: “What’s so beautiful about this story as a whole is this idea that Belle is able to see past these extraneous, external, superficial qualities of Beast. She is able to see deeper, and that’s one of her special powers. It is her superpower: empathy.”

Also in the issue, Emma reveals what struggles she sees today for women and girls, as well as the movie that made her decide to not quit acting. EW also looks into how the Beauty and the Beast design team crafted the Beast’s ballroom.
