Our favorite bookish-peasant-turned-princess will soon be gracing the big screen once again. Harry Potter star Emma Watson will star in Disney's live-action take on Beauty and the Beast as Belle, while Dan Stevens will play the Beast and Luke Evans will play Gaston. The official trailer is making us so excited for the movie's premiere on March 17, 2017. The fairy tale has come a long way from its 18th-century French origins. Let's look at the evolution of the fairy tale in pop culture, from classic books to the latest film and TV interpretations!

Emma is beautiful! And Beauty & the Beast is my favorite. A Guillermo del Toro version should be interesting!

Ugh, hate it, she looks too much like a little boy. Her gamine thing works for her and she is pretty, but not pretty playing belle.

She would be the cutest Belle! I am sure she can handle the darker role, she'd be a great match considering her Harry Potter experience i.e. dark themes etc. Reading this reminded me of her recent photo shoot with Harper's Bazaar Good Girl vs Bad Girl Emma -
