What an interesting (and happy!) coincidence. Today (August 21) Emma Watson wrapped her role as Belle in Disney’s live action remake of Beauty and the Beast, the same day she began work on Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone fifteen years ago (August 21, 2000).
The 21st of August seems to be a lucky day for Emma!
The 21st of August must be an auspicious day for me 15 yrs ago I began my journey as Hermione15 yrs later I wrap on my 1st musical as Belle.

As most Emma Watson fans already know, she has been filming for the role of Belle in Disney’s live action remake of Beauty and the Beast, which was directed by Bill Condon.
Words simply cannot express how excited we are to see Emma as Belle. We know that she will make Disney fans so proud! We have no idea how we’re supposed to wait until 2017 to see this movie. Too excited!
