Emma Watson just announced that she'll be playing Belle in an upcoming rendition of Disney's Beauty and the Beast — and she'll even be singing!


The Harry Potter actress announced the news on Facebook, saying it was a dream come true and that she'll have to "start some singing lessons."

Although she was attached to a Beauty and the Beast project in 2011, it eventually got scrapped, so we're glad that she's finally able to play the part, even if it's with a different studio and a different director.

We had no idea this girl could sing! Apparently, she's harmonized on a track with indie artist Ben Hammersley before (but you can't get a good sense of her voice in the song).

We'll just have to wait for the movie to come out! This is just like when Jennifer Lawrence surprised us with her version of "The Hanging Tree."

Are you excited to watch Emma in Beauty and the Beast? Do you think she's the perfect Belle? Tell us in the comments!
